I'm sorry to bother you with this plant and my pics of it... again.
But I am soooo proud of it and soooo happy that it chooses to flower for me so wonderfully.
The second flower started to open on Thursday. Today is Saturday and both flowers are still open without any sign of fatigue. That means that the first flower has now been open for nine days (it started to open Thursday, Aug 2)!
I sort of suspect the fertilizer I have been giving them this year. This is the first year they have gotten some decent food and it looks as if that was a good decision. In the past years the flowers (as far as I remember) only lasted a couple of days, but never a whole week long or even longer.
I will keep you updated on how long theses flowers actually stay open in the end.
But now, with no further ado, the result of my lates photoshooting. Adenium obesum times two:
