From Socotra, this is the largest variety of Adenium but is extremely slow growing. It is distinctive in just about every way from other Adenium species, and it tends to go dormant at different times. For us, it typically goes dormant during the spring and early summer, the prime growing time for most Adeniums. You should be an expert grower to handle this species, and you should expect that there could be extended periods of dormancy. These seedlings are in one-gallon pots.
