Cactus Monday / Adenium Obesum

Since succulents are officially allowed in cactus Monday here is my favorite one.
Adenium Obesum .
I just love it's flowers. They nearly look unreal, just like orchids.
I have 4 in my home and they are surviving my care. I am a killer with plants.....
I even managed to kill my Christmas Cactus...... (shame on me).
Click on the label desert rose to see more pics and post on this plant.
And visit Teri to see who is posting Cactus fun this week!
Happy Cactus Monday!
