Q.

Desert Rose ,leaves fell off

Zone 10 I think | Anonymous added on April 17, 2019 | Answered

My sister gave me a desert rose she got from her mother in law in Florida, but the leaves all fell off. I treat it like a cactus;give it water when it needs it & it's sitting in front of the window. I live in Columbus Ohio; we have cold months and then raining months. I ordered another one which will arrive next Friday. I just need some idea how to keep it alive . TY .

There are a number of things that can go wrong with these. If you can include photos of the plant and area in which it sits, then maybe I can help you determine what happened. It is normal for it to, sometimes, lose leaves during the winter months, but they will normally recover. If you can provide some photos, I will be better able to help you determine what went wrong. This article will help you, in the meantime, to care for these plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/desert-rose/caring-for-desert-rose-plants.htm
