Adenium boehmianum


Adenium boehmianum. (Apocynaceae) A succulent shrub that grows up to 1,5m high. The swollen stem bears whitish grey branches, covered with dark markings of the old leaf bases and is popular with caudex collectors. The showy, long-tubed flowers are pink to mauve with a darker throat and are hairy on the outside and appear in autumn. Sowing: Sow seeds in summer. Sow the seeds in a 5-7 mm deep sandy medium (4 parts fine and 4 parts coarse river sand; 1 part sieved, well-rotted compost; 1 part perlite; 1 part vermiculite). Water (not too much) and a temperature of 27-35°C will ensure that the seeds germinate rapidly. Locality: Windhoek. Harvest: January 2023
