Reasonably Priced Adeniums Found At Taman Eng Ann Morning Market, Klang





Recently, Mamarazzi got to know a friend (Mr Low) through Bukit Jelutong Plant Exchange. He is an avid adenium lover.

He told Mamarazzi that he got his adeniums very cheaply from morning market at Taman Eng Ann Klang . And oh boy...the photos he posted in his FB ...wow... so beautiful . But sorry ya, Mamarazzi not posting it here without his permission.

Anyway, last weekend we went there to have a look.

 According to Mr Low, people come to buy adenium as early as 5.40am. If not mistaken, this stall opens from Sunday to Friday. Saturday, the boss will go to the nurseries and source adenium plants.

Hence, people would come very early on Sunday to choose adeniums  with beautiful roots/caudex. Yes, adenium is not only prized for their flowers but also the caudex and roots. The more complicated , the pricier it is.


 What's the price range? Well, according to Mr Low who is a regular there...those on the table are premiums ones and  cost around RM25 to RM30 a pot. Still it's much cheaper than some nurseries that Mamarazzi went to.


 See! So beautiful .


 Those on the floors are priced between RM8 to RM18.  If not mistaken the RM8 to RM10 are not grafted. No tag and colors unknown. Sometimes you will get surprising colors . Just like Mr Low who got a pot for RM6 which turn out to be multipetals yellow blooms.

The grafted ones are between RM16 to RM18 depending on the type. Sometimes they grafted two types of flowers in one plant.


 The one the boss was pointing to was RM25 only and it's multi petal bloom. Mamarazzi was "late" that morning. Those blooming with flowers were grabbed up by the early birds.



However, Mr Low was there. He helped Mamarazzi choose a few. The trick learnt from Mr Low is that to choose the ones that you think you want and put one side first or else it would be grabbed by other. After that, can bargain with the boss for a lower price.

Now Mamarazzi is looking forward to the blooms. To seed what surprise is install.


After "borong-ing" the adeniums, we went to nearby BKT restaurant for breakfast. The famous Restaurant Mo Sang Kor. Didn't eat much coz not really suit our taste buds.


Speaking of buds... it seems like my "big" tooth "buds" is coming up. Back gums are swollen and painful .


Feeling feverish and coughing too. Hope it will be okay soon. 

Oh ya...the location of the adenium stall is right in front of Pasar Persendirian Eng Ann Enterprise, Lorong Kasawari 4, Taman Eng Ann, Klang. It's operated by an old man.

  16. We call these your Wisdom Teeth! Hope they come up fast! Adeniums I have never heard of! Do they twist naturally, or do you have to train them to?

  17. RM 25 I guess normal prize for plants, because my mom she always love to buy orchid and mostly they sold her as RM25 only, but those baby plant is RM10.

  18. Cutenya...the plants. SK, drink lots of water and get well soon ok?

  19. I love these flowers as they look auspicious! The stems are nice and curvy with cheap price tags. When they grow big and old, you can sell them as priceless bonsai. So start twisting their stems now for investment la.

    These adeniums.... very hard to stop once started. Cheapskate me used to go for the small plants, but after a while agreed with hubby that it really takes TOO long to grow. Recent purchase was a rm100 plant hehe.
