Adenium arabicum

Caudiciforms are a family of succulents that mostly store their sustaining resources such water and nutrients in the trunk or swollen roots of the plant. Most of the popular caudiciform plants are from southern Africa and Madagascar. Although, some species grow in other parts of the world as well. Each species has their own particulars as to the best way to grow them. Some are easy to grow and can tolerate treatment not normally provided by their native enviroment. Others are very particular about the enviroment they are in, and are best left to the advanced collectors. Some are winter growers and may suffer if over watered in the summer. However, most are warm season growers as indicated by the leaf and branch growth during the warm season. Most have non-succulent leaves, as the succulent tissue is in the branches, trunk, and/or the roots of the plant. However, a few such as the Cotyledons, Cissus, and Cerariea have succulent leaves as well as a fat trunk. We'll try to briefly describe the particular habits and preferred environments of each family caudiciforms that we offer.

Then there are Adeniums from central Africa. They not only grow large bases, produce spectacular flowers. Many hybrids have been created to achieve new flower colours.
