Adenium Arabicum Hybrid Desert Rose Cutting Propagation
While desert rose seed propagation is relatively easy, most gardeners have better success with growing a desert rose from cuttings. You may be wondering,“How do I grow a desert rose from cuttings?” Not only do they start from cuttings easily and quickly, you will be able to keep the true nature of hybrid plants, as hybrid will revert if grown from seed.
Take a cutting from the tip of a branch. Allow the cutting to dry out for a day or two, then wet the end of the desert rose cutting and dip it in rooting hormone. Stick the cutting into a well draining growing medium like perlite or sand mixed with soil. Water the cutting daily, making sure the water is able to drain out of the soil. Use a spray bottle and mist the cutting daily as well.
The cutting should take root in about two to six weeks.
Growing a desert rose from seeds or cuttings can be done. With a little patience, you can have your own desert rose plant for your home.
