Temperature and Humidity
Your plant should be kept in warm temperatures at all times—it will die quickly if exposed to prolonged temperatures of under 50 degrees Fahrenheit and thrives best at temperatures between 65 and 90 degrees. If you've planted your desert rose outdoors, know that it is not likely it will survive any frosts that the fall or winter months may bring. Humidity is not important to the desert rose, as it's used to the dry, hot climate a desert provides.
For an added dose of nutrients (and a chance at more flowers once bloomed), you can feed your desert rose with liquid fertilizer (diluted by half) once a month during its active growth period. Do not fertilize the plant during its dormant period.
Please stored in a cool, dry place
