Hello,

I have grown new desert roses babies. Somehow I ordered different color of desert rose and the seeds looks different so I grow them only one grow so far and it didn’t look like desert rose to me. Left is more shiny than right which have little fuzzy.

In two photos- both on left is desert rose and on right is unsure.... if you know what it is please let me know. I don’t know if I’m being conned by that.

Thank in advance.

Hi Jara,

You are right, the seeds do not look like Adenium. They could be for a different variety, or a completely different plant, it's difficult to know at this stage.  Can you contact the seed seller and get a refund?  If not, the plant you started might be a fun surprise.  

Keep us posted?  :)

I looked on ebay and it appears that they are selling both kind so I feel this has to do with which variety they are.
