The desert rose thrives full sunlight.
Keep soil moderately moist in spring and summer, but reduce watering in fall and especially winter when the plant is dormant. Allow the top of the soil to dry out slightly before watering.
The Desert Rose prefers average temperature of 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (21.1 to 26.7 degrees Celsius). The temperature should never drop below 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15.6 degrees Celsius)
Humidity is not important to the desert rose because it is accustomed to a dry, hot climate.
Fertilize with a dilution by half of a 20-20-20 liquid plant food once per month when the plant is actively growing. Do not feed the desert rose during winter.
