All kinds of adenium and their prices are on this web page. The diameter of young grafts is about 4 cm (usually larger than 4 cm). Each kind of grafts, which has 2-3 sprouts and the sprouts height are about 4-5 cm, costs 150NT$~10,000NT$. In addition, the normal desert roses usually bloom less pretty. Therefore, they are cheaper and more common. On the other hand, the better desert roses will cost more than the normal ones, and their qualities is definitely better but they are scarcely in Taiwan.
Some flowers shown in the pictures are not sold in the market yet, and 4-6 kinds are even not sold in Taiwan¡¦s Adenium market. If you like some flowers in this website, please e-mail me the flowers' English names and quantities. I will reply to you ASAP and give you the specific prices and the amount of the stock. Please inform me some details, such as the varieties you are interested in, your name, and address.
I won't send you the seeds that are just picked up because they exist too much water and easily cause seeds moldy. I must dry them before selling them. When you receive the seeds, you must soak them in the water for 2-4 hours before sowing in order to increase the germination rate. After sowing, you should keep the soil wet for three days until the sprouts appear. Please take care of the temperature,which will affect the germination rate directly. Generally speaking, the germination rate is between 75% to 95%.
I must clean and dry the Desert roses seeds in order to avoid being moldy before I send them. Besides, I always product a little amount Desert Roses seeds, which you can see in my homepage. Some kinds of seeds are not easy to produce, so the price will be more expensive. If you want to buy any seeds, please email to me first and I am sure that you will be satisfied with our service.
Here I will explain why the seeds supply in a small amount. First, they are not mature yet. It should take about 1~3 months to let them be mature. Next, I don't provide seeds of all kinds of species. Because I am a business man, I always pick up more potential ones to copulate. Of course, I'm not very sure if each seed is better than his parents, but who knows? Every seed is like a hope, a hope for the future, isn't it?
Recently, I breed many lined-flowers of American series, and I make a breakthrough in white flowers. Now I keep on collecting some types of ADENIUM which are easily inseminated in the natural way. And I believe that I'll create more new types of ADENIUM in the future. I don't have any problems of nematodes in Taiwan. When you have applied for the quarantine certificate in the airport, you can bring your favorite types of desert roses home easily.
My planting area of desert roses should be amongst of the third biggest ones in Taiwan. I must produce seeds, graft, and create new types of flowers. In normal, the garden isn't open to the public, only if you make an appointment with me in advance, and tell me exact time and the numbers of people. Thanks for your cooperation.
The price of desert roses will rise a little
bit next year in Taiwan. The reason is that the follow-up people of planting
desert roses couldn't produce right away because they are short of some conditions
of production. We don't have many English names of desert roses in Taiwan, and
when we translate Chinese names into English names, the English ones are not
always the same. So I suggest that you just name them whatever you like in your
I couldn't answer your letter quickly because
I need a translator to help me translate the message.
Thus, as you know, I couldn't control the reply time well. Usually, I often reply the letter on Tuesday and Friday. If you really need me to reply soon, I can just reply you some simple words. I have to say sorry for that.
I really like to talk about desert roses to all of you, but the language is a big trouble for me. And I really hope the computer software may become smarter and translate Chinese into English smoothly.

The Secrets of having 95% germination rate for Adenium:
The best temperature for Adenium to survive is
from 20 to 35¢J.
2. Selecting fresh seeds or seeds that are harvested during three months to sow.
3. Before sowing, soak the seeds into water for at least two to four hours. If you are using water-tube to water the seeds, you must soak them for two to four hours. Otherwise, if you water the seeds by sprinkling, you can sow them first and then just sprinkle them for 15 minutes.
4. The first week for sowing, please keep the appropriate wet for the soil in order to have better sprout.
5. Once the seeds sprout and grow two leaves, please decrease the wet of environment (soil). Before watering, the surface of the soil needs to be dry.
6. It only takes two weeks for the seeds to sprout and grow into 1-2 cm in diameter, and the temperature must be kept in the range of 22~35¢J. In addition, I have to declare that I do not use fertilizers in my soil.
7. After the seeds have sprouted, add fertilizer into water and then sprinkle them. In that way, the leaves can also absorb the fertilizers. Fertilizers used as N,P,K, for every 4 to 5 days until the plants need to change their pots into a three-inch pot.
8. The soil for the three-inch basin would require fertilizers for the long-term, which means that the Adenium would need to be fertilized about every ten days.
Picture of Sowing Experiences
use hand pollinate, so it has low possibility (20%-30%)
to grow into pink adenium. Most of them have characters of their parents.
The red, white and whit with red border adenium are more stable.
Although seed is not guaranteed to look exactly like the parent plant, some will look exactly like the parent, while others may have only certain characteristics in common with the parent. This is how new varieties are created.
It needs time and luck to produce the new kinds which are better than their parents.
Adenium obesum seeds: These are sold in packets of 10
seeds each assortment with a minimum order. Seeds are normally sent by
Provisory Special Post and a quarantine certificate is available. Seeds are
shipped fresh and will give a minimum of 75% germination (usually more); however,
as is usual in the seed trade, because germination conditions and numerous factors
are outside our control, no express guarantee is provided. We have never had
any problems so far. If you want to buy in large qty (
100,000 seeds ), it is better to have import licence.
If you only want to buy in small qty, I will apply for quarantine certificate for you.

We¡¦ve tried many ways to improve this issue and hope it¡¦ll successful blooming the pure white flower sooner.
12. Variegated Leaves White: Basically, variegated leaves is mutant varieties. So far we still can not make sure how many percentage chance that it will grow into exactly like Variegated Leaves.

So before you order the Variegated Leaves please make sure that you have read this information.

seeds have been drying out for preventing from wetness during shipping in case
they are ruined by mildew.
When the customers receive the seeds, we suggest them must soak seeds in the water for 2-4 hours before sowing in order to increase the germination rate.
After sowing, keep the soil wet for 10 days until the sprouts appear.
Please take care of the temperature, which will affect the germination rate directly.
The suitable temperature is between 25-35 Celsius degree.
Before you prepare sowing, you have to notice forecast not to meet the rainy days or the cloudy days for the following 7 days.
Or it will affect the germination rate.
From our experiments, the germination rate is between 75% and 98%.
The Adenium seeds I mail to the clients are all harvested freshly.
When you sow our seeds under the temperature of 20 to 35¢J.
I am able to guarantee the seeds will be able to have more than 80 percent of germination rate.
All of the seeds I mailed to my customers come from my adenium garden.
If you order white, red, and white petal with red curving adeniums, they will have 90% similarity of the pictures you see on my website.
However, the progenies of purple and striped line adenium are more flexible. I haven't been able to keep track of their originalities;
therefore, they are a little hard to be predictable.
It can be guaranteed that all of the seeds which my clients order are from the Adenium garden you see on the website.
If you want the seeds to grow better than those in my pictures, I can tell you that it happens rarely.
If you really keep the seeds under appropriate temperature, it will have a great chance to bloom like the pictures you see on my website

****As for exporting seeds to Brazil. Due to the Customs in Brazil doesn't admit the quarantine certificate from Taiwan, though we've tried many ways to solve this problem, but it still didn't work. From now on, the seeds we send to Brazil all will send by Ordinary mail( if you didn't ask for other shipping methods), and ordinary mail will not have the tracking number also it might take 20~30 days for it arrives Brazil. It still has some risk. But it's proper way for seller and buyers to send the seeds to Brazil now. Moreover, if you purchased over 3000 seeds in one order, then we'll packaged seeds in two differences parcels (not need to pay extra postage), just in case it might held up by the Custom. Therefore, we hope the customers whom live in Brazil, if you have any questions, please do inform us before you purchase the seeds. We'll be really grateful for it.
