Making of adenium plant soil mixture is very tricky, as adenium plant need dryness in soil so the mixture must have more part of sand in it so that the water does not hold for much of the time, as the sand will not absorb the water and the water will drain out of the soil mixtur.

let's talk about the % of soil mixture required in the soil mixture of adenium / Desert rose
Garden top soil will be 40% + sand will be  25% + cocopeat 20% + 5 % will be the fertilizer & 10 % will be gravels

1) Garden top soil :-

                 Garden top soil is very important as the nutrient is present for the development of the plant and roots so the 40% of the soil mixture will be the garden top soil and the development will be the part of nutrients present

2) Sand :- 

                As the Adenium is the desert plant so the they love sand and the sand also allow them to spread roots so easily as they grow thick roots system and also the compact roots system so they require the loose soil mixture and the sand will work great on the soil mixture

3) Cocopeat :-

                   Adenium require less water so the soil mixture contain most part of sand so the water does not stay in the soil and is drain out, at this time the cocopeat work great and hold the water in the soil and allow adenium roots to absorb the water from the soil.

4) Fertilizer :-

                  Desert plant does not require the fertilizer most of the time as the desert plant survive most of the time with less nutrients in the soil, but at the time of flowering they need some part of extra nutrients so at that time we can give them the organic fertilizer the the soil mixture and make our plant happy and the soil mixture rich in nutrients.

5) Well drainage system :-

                Well drainage system is very important in the soil mixture of adenium plant. If the water stay for longer time then the water will damage the roots system and may lead the plant die. So the drainage system must be very good and this can only be possible when the drainage hole in the pot is very good.

And all this depends on an healthy adenium plant if the plant is healthy then all this thing will work and if the plant is not healthy then the condition may go beyond the condition so the selection of adenium plant is also important in the good soil mixtuer system.
