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.

The seeds that are just harvested won’t be sold, because they are so wet that they will be moldy easily. They will be dried before selling. When you receive the seeds, you must soak them in the water for 2-4 hours before sowing, so that the germination rate will be higher. After sowing, you should keep the soil wet for three days until the sprouts appear. Please watch out for temperature that will affect the germination rate directly. Generally speaking, the germination rate is between 75% and 95%.

Usually, the seeds will be cleaned and they are far from dust or other materials. Also, they will be tried naturally before shipping. It can prevent them from being moldy during the shipment. Therefore, you may feel more confident for our nice seeds.

In addition, you can find from my WebPages that some of seeds aren't produced easily, so they don’t have too much production. Relatively, their price will be higher than others. If you want to order any seeds, please email me first and we will see what we can do for you.

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 all kinds of seeds. Because I am a businessman, I always pick up more potential ones to pollinate. Of course, I'm not very sure if each progeny is better than its parents, but who knows? Every seed is like a hope for the future, isn't it?

Recently, I breed many striped adeniums of American series, and I make a breakthrough in white flowers. Now I keep on collecting some types of ADENIUM that are easily inseminated in the natural way. And I believe that I'll create more new varieties of ADENIUM in the next year. There is not any problem of nematode in Taiwan. After applied for the quarantine certificate in the airport, you can bring your favorite varieties of desert roses home easily.

My planting area of desert roses could be considered as the third largest farm in Taiwan. I produce seeds, graft, and create new varieties of flowers. In normal, the garden isn't open to the public, only if you make an appointment in advance, and tell me exact time and the number of the visiting people. Thanks for your cooperation.

The price of desert roses will rise a little bit this 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.

Usually, we Taiwanese don’t call the adenium in English, so when we translate Chinese names into English names, the translation are not always the same. Therefore, I will suggest that you just name them whatever you like or common in your country.

I couldn't answer your letter quickly because I need a translator to help me to reply the messages. Thus, as you know, I couldn't control the time by myself. Usually, I often reply the letter during the weekdays (Mon ~ Fri). If you really need me to reply soon, please feel free to let me know and I will just reply you some simple words. I am really sorry for this and wish this could be understandable. It is a pleasure to talk about desert roses to you, but the language is a big problem for me. I really hope the computer software may become smarter and translate Chinese into English better.

You could transfer the money after the documents are done. When I receive it, I will send an E-mail to inform you. Usually, you can receive the order within eight to ten days after we received the remittance. Of course, we'll also send an E-mail to inform the day of delivery.

It is not good to send a check to me, because I will need to pay the handling fees for the bank or post office to cash the check. Also, 
it will take more than one month for me to get the money. In this way, it might let the customers to wait longer to get the package, 
since we always send the parcels after being paid.

Three Important things to remind:
1. Do you need a quarantine certificate? (It is free.) If you need any other quarantine items, then please mention it within your order.
2. If you are afraid of the purchase being held in customs, we recommend you apply for a quarantine certificate. We believe that the quarantine certificate is one of the key elements for successful shipment. 3. Some clients only purchase a small amount, and the quarantine certificate won’t be necessary in some countries. However, I can't promise it can be practiced everywhere. Most customers deliver via priority mail, which is cheaper, but it will take longer for shipment. If you wish your purchase to be arrived earlier, then you may feel free to inform us which kind of international mailing service you prefer. Currently we have EMS, Express, FedEx, and UPS for better and more efficient delivery in Taiwan.

The Secrets of having 95% germination rate for Adenium:

1. The best temperature for Adenium to survive is from 20 to 35℃.
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℃. 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

About Seeds:

I 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.

Basic 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.

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

Notes: Our 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℃.
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
