We received a desert rose plant for Christmas and to this date it has not flowered. Can you give us a reason why? It’s kept in a big enough pot and at the end of our pergola. A friend suggested putting it in full sun, but it has completely flopped over in the pot since doing that.
Does the desert rose plant grow well in the ground?
My desert rose is about 3 yrs. old from when I first purchased it. It had 2 seed pods that have recently burst open. Can I start new plants from the seedlings?
My husband and I starting desert rose seeds. we put three seeds in each section of an egg carton. They have come up in each section. Our questions is, should we leave them as a group of three seedlings when we transplant them into bigger seedling pots, or should we only put one seedling in a pot? We have more seeds, should we try and save them for a later date?
I learned from your website about planting from seed but don’t know how to harvest the seeds. My 5 year old (gorgeous) plant has created two seed pods. Do I let the pods get dry and harvest (chance to lose some)? Since they will be ‘fresh’ I can have pots ready to plant the seeds directly instead of drying them but my question is: how do I harvest seeds and when?
I have a desert rose with two long seed pods. When the seed pod dries and I get the seed out, how long should I wait before planting and are there any special things I should know?
Thanks, Al Dodd
