Care

The desert rose is native to hot, humid climates but can thrive anywhere if properly cared for with warmth and lots of sunlight. Desert Rose features a thick trunk, which stores water, and trumpet-shaped flowers in a variety of colors.

WATER: Allow soil to dry between watering. Do not allow standing water in the pot or tray.

LIGHT: Display in sunny areas near a window, or in a place it will receive 8 hours of bright artificial light.

TEMPERATURE: These plants tolerate a wide range of temperatures from 60-90F. Keep away from air conditioning or heating vents.

FERTILIZER: Apply a balanced houseplant food once every other month at ½ strength.
