The Desert Rose has a thick trunk with glossy, dark green leaves, but blooms gorgeous trumpet-shaped flowers! Technically a succulent, it is another slow grower that doesn't require too much maintenance.
Our current stock is 6" in grow pot size.
Lighting: Bright light is best. Will also be happy outside during the summer, but give it some protection from any harsh afternoon sun as this can scorch it's leaves.
Watering: Keep soil moderately moist in the spring and summer, but reduce watering in fall/winter when the plant is dormant. A thick trunk is the sign of a properly-hydrated plant.
Toxicity: Dangerously toxic to humans and pets.
