My Horny Adenium


Madam, madam! Look, look! Now what have we here?

I did notice the early stages, these cute little horns.



Adorable, eh? Then as usual I walk past this plant everyday without looking. Distracted by what, I also don't know. 

Then one day it became this huge thing. OMG!



So I started paying attention. And guess what?



An itsy bitsy one started growing right next to it.

See it?



It also grew progressively.




Now I have two pairs of horns in my garden.



I've been keeping tabs of the progress.

Latest picture. I guess, pretty soon I will be harvesting seeds.

  1. Horns? Hmmm...I'd be lucky if mine stays alive. Only the wood left after a long time of neglect but I managed to revive it - now there are leaves and flowers are blooming!!! So happy! Plants are like people too - need tender loving care!

Then eh, your story finished liao, nothing hamsap, huhuhu..

  4. Goodness! The world of hamsap readers will google search "Horny" and see you flowering instead! Wakakakaka

    This flower is very popular during CNY as many people believe that it brings good Feng Shui and blessings.

  5. Good news: when I try to Google search "Adenium", your blog show up in first page!

    So it is just a flower, not edible har? From the pictures, the horn looked like a distant cousin of the okra. :/

  8. Your fu guai fa plant must be quite an adult to have horns and going to spew seeds from its horns soon. :D

    1. That must have been a younger plant. The older ones will produce horns.
