I keep mine indoors in a bay window for good sunlight. Most all of the leaves have turned brown and dry on the edges. The trunk seems to be healthy. I don't know why this is happening or how to correct it.
Desert rose plants are a little tricky. You have to be careful about watering, but brown tips on leaves usually are due to a watering issue. Make sure it is getting at least five or six hours of sun through the bay window. A south window is best.
I have looked everywhere to find out just how much water to give a desert rose. All i can find is water it 2/3 time a week, but that doesn't tell me how much to give.
You will give it as much water as it takes to see it running out of the drain holes. Ideally, you will have a container with adequate drainage holes, and a saucer to catch extra water. Once water starts to flow out of the bottom and into the saucer, you can stop. After a couple of minutes you will need to throw out the extra water in saucer.
Water every time your soil is dry down to about halfway into the container.
Can you advise me what to do with this half broken stem? Cut and propogare? Can I seal it back together? Leave it?
If you were to wrap it when it first happened, then wound repair would be appropriate. Since it has been awhile, I would leave it as it is, or tie it up, slightly.
It will continue to grow, and adjust to the injury. It is no harm to the plant, but might be a little unsightly.
Here are some articles that will help you with the care of the plant:
The growth looks like a horizontal green bean about 8 inches long.
Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. It does sound like a seed pod, though.
ow any leaves. The branches look shriveled and scaly. I put it outside and it is not improving. I pinched the end off some of the branches. Not sure what happened.
I just looks stressed. If you don't feed it often, then this may be what it needs.
Hiya, very curious about the appearance of two distinct flower types appearing simultaneously on my Desert Rose. Can you offer any info on this? Is it typical, or somehow an anomaly, and if so, what is the cause?
It looks like another variety was grafted onto a stem of your adenium. Or, there are two plants side by side in the same container. I can't tell from the photo.
I have some new growth on the trunk. Should I trim them off? Also, do they have to reach a certain age to bloom? One of my desert roses is in full bloom. The other one is just growing.
You may want to prune off the growth on the caudex for aesthetic reasons. Let the cut end callous then plant in perlite for a new plant.
