What to do with big - no shape adenium ?
So, I happen to have lots of of Adenium Obessum at home. It was somehow abandoned since my mother in law passed away. No one had really interest in taking care her yard.
I have no knowledge in gardening. So far, I am just adding some fertilizer, change the soil, and water it daily. To keep it alive somehow, with my basic knowledge. Among many flowers and plants, there are Adenium. Everywhere.

But my grown-up Adenium take too much place in the yard. Either giving up the flower to someone else or I need to take care of it. After contemplating, I decided to take care of it.
1st step : Cut the stem
I decided to left only around 20 cm of the stem
Step 2 : Covered it with plastic bag
So, After cutting the stem, I covered with plastic bag in order to keep it from fungi. Thats what people said. And it works.
After a week, new plant buds are appearing, following with new leaves. As shown in the image below.

This is just early step of how to create bonsai out of Adenium. I can't wait to work more with this plant.
Wish me luck !
