Adenium Obesum

After getting hooked on succulents this past summer, I kept drooling over the many photos I saw around the net. It's an interest succulent (member of the Oleander family)that produces very nice flowers.

While researching this plant I found out it originates from East Africa and can be propagated from seeds and from cuttings. All parts of this plant are toxic and should be kept away from children and animals.

I found this particular plant at a local Walmart store. It is nine inches tall, from the soil line, and the base of the plant is three inches wide. Not a bad looking plant considering it only cost me five dollars.
