    Dear all,

    First, I am not sure whether I am posting in the right place so please forgive me if I am wrong.

    Secondly, I just received two desert Rose plants (30 cm height each) and would like to have your recommendations with regard to the following:

    1. Best time to transplant them into larger pots;
    2. Can I use peat moss and sand mix;
    3. I live in Cairo Egypt where the temperature is currently high (30-40 c); how frequent should I water them; and
    4. During winter, can I leave them in my balcony (night temperature could go down to may be 5c).
    5. Best time to prune and frequency of fertilizing them - I am using A 20-20-20 fertilizer

    Thx in advance
