  • Give your desert rose as much bright indirect to direct light as possible! Can tolerate and will benefit from early morning sun but leaves can burn in harsh direct afternoon sun if not acclimated enough. Windows are the best location for these sun-loving plants to be. These plants also do well outdoors as long as temps are above 60º.
