|Adenium plant in my entry way garden|
Tantrums began with no sunlight issues in my window garden facing North. Adenium does require indirect sunlight and at least few hours sunlight. Otherwise they throw tantrums!
once I had killed a few adeniums years back beginning with gardening experiences, so that explained I need to take care of these Adenium plants carefully. Trust me sometimes you will not even realize the adenium is dead! they start going mushy from baser and insides and have the covering intact till you physically touch the plant and notice its hollow...it already has left you....that the pots must not be of ceramic because they hold too much water for long periods which the Adenium plant does not like. Well draining soil is must and if your adenium plant is throwing tantrums you need to do this, talk, shift them and find the best place for their placement. Adding dried egg shells helps. I have been on watch regularly for their health and have shifted them from pot to pot to see which ones make them comfortable. The photo below was another unsuccessful experiment and they didn't like the hanging planters made of plastic.

But guess love keeps them alive! Found a spot near the window shelf and they are giving out fresh green leaves now, both of the adenium plants. So hoping to see them healthy.

|Recycling old plastic container with decoupage and WOW effects!|
Decoupage is such a beautiful craft. Thick glossy magazine calendar photos can be wetted and then gradually remove the top layer of image, let it dry and then stick on any surface using your creative ideas. For decoupage you need very thin papers, and we also get ready decoupage tissue and napkins online.
