TOPIC: Help to identify tree type and care

Help to identify tree type and care 1 month 1 week ago #37035

Hi,

I recently acquired the tree attached and not sure what type it is. I live in Austin TX and had the tree outside until recently. When I moved it indoors it started to get yellow on the leaves and they are now falling off. Is this an indoor or outdoor plant? If indoor, how can I make this transition without killing the plant? Also, looking for best practices on caring for the tree (water, light...).

Thanks for the help.

This i an adenium. Not ideal species for bonsai, although in Texas you might be succesfull.

There is no such thing as an indoorplant.Plants belong outdoor. Just make sure you protect tropicals against frost (Or better: Temperatures below 10 degrees).

Salutations. That there is a AdeniumObesum (Dersert Rose). I have had mine for 3 years now. I treat it like a Tropical Tree as it is a succulent. If u goto tree species on this site u will find the best info to get u started with the best care. Good Luck
