The Adenium plant produces seeds within their elongated, curvy berries. The seeds will pop out once the berries are ripe. These seeds can be grown into adenium plants with proper nurture and care. But we usually use plants that have been grafted in nurseries. Plastic pots are preferred to normal clay pots because plastic pots retain moisture better. Holes must also be provided in the pot in order to drain out the excess water. It is advised to scatter pieces of bronze at the bottom layer of the pot mixture. Loose soil, red soil and cow patties are mixed in the proportion of 2:1:1 before planting.
Initial stage of plant growth requires an adequate quantity of water and manure. But once it reaches a mature stage of plant growth, it needs to be watered only once in 3 days. Routine irrigation should ensure that the mixture in the pot is never dry. Pruning can be done to smoothen the tip of the stem. Pruning also has the advantage of increasing the number of branches and flowers. Pruning is below the stem. Fungicides are sprayed at the pruned portion of the plant.
Adenium starts flowering only after 1 year from planting. Large number of flowers will bloom only if adequate sunlight and climatic conditions are provided. Alternatively, you can also try spraying a mixture of 5 gm potassium nitrate and calcium nitrate in 1 litre of water. Now let us take a deeper look at how breeding is done using seeds. First, remove the delicate portion of the berry from both sides of seed. Seeds should be sown in a plain vessel filled with loose soil. Seed germination should occur within a week. After 1 month, the saplings must be shifted to the plastic pot. Plants grown by this method, if treated with utmost care and attention, are usually found to yield a large number of flowers within 1 to 1½ years of planting it.
