As a former inhabitant of steppes and desert areas of Africa, the desert rose is not adapted to local winters. Even when temperatures fall below 10 °C, this can have serious consequences. So winter is the order of the day!

The desert rose often loses its leaves in winter

The winter quarters: moderately warm and dry

A partially shaded room is ideal for the desert rose to overwinter. Living rooms are completely unsuitable because it is too warm there. Cool bedrooms are more suitable. The temperature should be between 10 and 16 °C and never fall below 10 °C!

Handling in winter: the right care

Don't be surprised if the desert rose gradually loses its leaves. This is completely normal in winter. In view of this, you should pay attention to the following care:

  • do not fertilize
  • pour little
  • do not cut
  • Check regularly for pests (especially scale insects).

tips

After hibernation, it's the perfect time to repot the desert rose!
