Details

Because they can tolerate dry conditions, these are well-suited for the home environment. They need good light to thrive, so direct sunlight is preferable. In fact, the hotter the better, so take them outside during the summer months to be exposed to the full direct sunlight. This will be important to their active growth phase during the summer months. Soil moisture is also another factor to consider. Their common name, Desert Rose, speaks to their ability to thrive with less water. These can tolerate higher moisture levels without harming the plant, as long as the temperatures are warm. As a general rule, be sure to let the soil dry out in between waterings and then thoroughly saturate the potting mix. However, do not over-water these when they are in their inactive growth phase during the winter months. During the slow growth time of year, it is best to water these sparingly and err on the dry side. Once the temperatures increases and new growth is visible, increase the amount of water. A good rule to remember when growing these is that high temperatures and full sun require more water and in cooler temperatures, the plants need less water.

Frustrated Review by Erika

I am very frustrated with these flowers. It sounds like they should be easy to take care of . I bought 5 last summer and have followed the directions including not overwatering. 3 of them got soft and died within the first 4 months , now 9 months later, the 4th one is getting soft and has lost all leaves. I would like to propagate it before it totally dies - wishing there was a how-to video.
