How to grow a happy Adenium.

What you need for successful growing Adeniums:
  1. A small pot with excellent drainage, size of root system.
  2. Adenium soil mix. Use only well-drained soil. We suggest this Adenium mix.
  3. Lots of light for heavy flowering. However, in super hot climates, they look healthier in filtered bright light.
  4. Little water. Adeniums like a neutral to hard water. Acidic water tends to sour the soil too fast and may cause root rot.

  5. Water plants preferably in the early morning, and allow them to drink up throughout the day.
    Do not water again until soil dries on surface. Never allow your plants to sit in a saucer of water, but don't let them to dry out too often - this causes adeniums to go into early dormancy. Adeniums do not like both over-watering or drying-out.

    5 Fertilizer. To make your plant develop a large swollen base/trunk, you'll need a good quality fertilizer. Sunshine Megaflor provides all the nutrients responsible for both Caudex growth and profuse flowering.

5 simple rules how to grow a fragrant

5 simple rules how to grow a fragrant
🌸 5 simple rules how to grow a fragrant Plumeria tree and make it bloom for you, just like in the pictures.
  1. Soil must be well-drained: use potting mix with good amount of perlite, bark, and coconut fiber. We recommend Sunshine Abundance professional soil mix for best results.
  2. Container must be the size of the root ball and not much bigger, to avoid water-logging. Plumeria likes dry conditions. Water only when the soil gets slightly dry.
  3. Full sun is a must. If grown indoors, keep the plant in the brightest spot and take it outside for the sun bathing when possible.
  4. Dormancy in winter: this little tree drops leaves during winter. When it happens, reduce water to the minimum and let your Plumeria rest until it starts sprouting new leaves.
  5. Fertilize for the profuse flowering with a plant food that is high in Phosphorus. Plumeria is a heavy feeder. We recommend Sunsine Megaflor Bloom Booster liquid fertilizer - it can be used with every watering and year around.


  6. 🪷 Enjoy the fragrant blooms!
