Description How to Grow Delivery

This characterful plant is sure to attract attention. Rarely seen and much sought after by collectors, Adenium ‘Ansu Baobab’ looks like a cute, miniature version of the mighty Baobab Tree. Its swollen, belly-like stem supports stubby branches topped with glossy green leaves. The bulging stem stores water making this the perfect plant for people who forget to water their houseplants, and it enjoys similar treatment to a succulent or cactus. During the winter months, the plant will go dormant and lose its leaves. This is a natural process and fresh new leaves will reappear in spring. Maximum height: 30cm (12in). Spread: 20cm (8in).

Grow in bright light with some shelter from the hottest sun. An average temperature of 10- 25C (50-77F) is ideal. Water at intervals, allowing the compost to dry out between waterings. Never allow the plant to sit in water as this will cause the stem to rot. This Adenium stores water in its stem so it needs surprisingly little water during the growing season. Reduce watering and allow plants to go dormant and remain completely dry through winter. During this period it will drop all its leaves. This is a normal process and fresh new leaves will regrow in spring.House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth.
