You rooted it in WATER??? My mother brought me three from Hawaii a few years ago, and I (stupidly) trimmed off the callused end, and two of them rotted. I later did a little research and all the places that sell them tell you that they root best between 15 and 30 days after cutting, 'when a callus is well-formed'.I've not been brave enough to cut mine.

that's exactly what I thought when I read that Jen. I've had mine in soil since the beginning of June and it's not rotted, but not doing anything else.
I may have my hand out later on...

Humm...Mine got leaves within a month or so, but it took it two years to flower. When it did, then it forked into two branches, went another two years, and this summer ONE branch flowered, the other didn't. These are strange plants---I've been told you can pull them up and overwinter them hanging from the ceiling of your basement or any other place where they won't freeze.

Well,mine didn't root in water or rot.But it grew new leaves.And lived that way til I gave that pc away.
MsBatt,they do grow 2 different branches when they are cut/broken.Still,neither branch has bloomed,but I hardly fertilize.
The first link www.Plumera 101.com shows some beautiful blooms and shows where they are rooting tons of pcs,but they didn't specify what to use in soil.
I just bring mine in for the winter .And it looks like a dried -up ole branch,til the following spring.

Good morning all, I got my plumeria as a well callused cutting in 1987, at the New York flower show. It rooted in soil and produced leaves the first year. I have never, repeat never fertilized it, just transplanted it 3 times in the past 13 years, it even died back to a small stump while dormant one winter. it is about 4 feet tall now, 3 branches and finally flowered the first time last year, and agian this year. Just brought it in to the conservatory to enjoy the blooms before frost hits. To all of you growing this as a house plant dont be surprised if it goes dormant in Jan - Feb. up here in the north is flowers late august. and is worth putting up with leafless for a while, just move it to a cool cellar or out of the way place until you see new growth starting. It gets BIG so dont be afraid to cut it.

tiG,
Now I'm nervous. Had a very nice lady send me 11 cuttings from her two plumerias. Just got them today and potted them by the same method you used. I know this isn't the best time of the year to take cuttings, but maybe one or two of mine will live. I'll tiG

don't be nervous brugie!! you can do it, you have a real green thumb. What is really frustrating is that my sister with a black thumb, ordered three cuttings off QVC. She let them sit in the package for 4 months. She was telling me, and I told her they were probably rotten, but to pot them up. This was last month. Well, she now has leaves on two of them!!!!!! argh. I'm gonna toss mine and try for another when I get a line on one!
