Adenium ( Desert Rose ) was introduced to the Philippines from Bangkok, Thailand, and the plant was also called ''Bangkok kalachuchi'' in the Philippines. It is a popular houseplant in tropical and temperate regions. A sunny location will be needed for showy flowering, with a minimum indoor temperature in winter of 10 °C. Repot in a small pot with excellent drainage, avoiding over-watering and drying-out as drying out too long would cause the plant to go into dormancy. Adeniums prefer a neutral to hard water. Acidic water tends to sour the soil too fast and may cause root rot. A fertilizer high in phosphorous will promote a large
swollen base.
