Aren't you the cutest little bonsai'd succulent?
So here's the deal with my seedling. I immediately repotted it from the soggy soil mix it was planted in, gave it a very rocky, sandy, fast draining soil, and stuck it in a pretty little bonsai planter. I realize if everything goes according to plan, it should outgrow this pot pretty quickly, but there in no guarantee I won't kill it this summer. Since the adenium are notoriously rot prone, I will probably be taking this little guy straight to work, where it will get direct afternoon sun. Less chance for rot, and I doubt it would do that well in my north-facing apartment. Permanent dormancy. That would be my prediction, anyway. Suffering the slowest death in the state of Illinois.
What are THESE???
I think they may be new branches, but maybe they are just new leaves...they look like little pink tulips growing out of the seedling's trunk. Only time will tell...hopefully they just won't involute like the buds on the new Huernia confusa I got in the mail last week...
Let's hope for the best!
