MASTER GARDENER: Desert Rose and Glorybower House Plants

Desert Rose is usually referred to as a caudiform plant because with time it develops a distinctive fleshy, swollen base.

As the Desert Rose name suggests, the common form produces striking rose-colored blossoms. The flowers are about two inches across and somewhat star-shaped. In recent years, plant breeders have developed varieties with double flowers, and additional flower colors such as white, yellow, orange, and almost red but Ive never seen them for sale in stores.

..

Although Desert Rose is often considered a bit more challenging to grow, it can be such a dramatic plant in appearance it is well worth a little extra attention. Because of its striking appearance, bonsai plant enthusiasts may also find it worthwhile. It is native to Africa and actually need less care than most house plants. It flowers best when grown in a nice warm location and very bright light.

..

The soil mix should contain a high proportion of coarse sand or other inorganic material such as gravel or perlite to ensure that it drains very well. In summer, when it is actively growing, a weekly watering that includes a mild fertilizer solution is more than sufficient, and in winter it needs virtually no watering. If you forget to water it occasionally, it doesnt seem to care.
