A beautiful cultivar with an extra fat caudex and stubby stems! This is most likely a hybrid between Adenium obesum, and Adenium arabicum having the squatter form of arabicum, and the larger flowers of obesum.

Should be watered once every 1 to 2 weeks during the summer, keep dry in winter. The caudex can grow quite rapidly if over potted and kept in extremely well draining medium (mostly pumice), up to several inches a season.
