I have a couple two month old cuttings one in water no roots but sending out a leaf, one in soil still green but no leaves, I don't know if there are roots, I just got another big cutting in mail, it was covered in wax and a little wilted, I don't seem to be doing well getting cuttings, I will trade anything I have for cuttings, rooted would be wonderfull. I am hunting for instructions My cutting in water has a bunch of white growths not roots look more like barnacles Help

Veeja, the cutting in water should be potted up now. Those are nubs which develop prior to roots forming and are a good sign.

The leaves indicate roots so, if you have no leaves on the other cutting, then you have no roots beneath the soil.

Some sellers use wax to seal the cut. It is usually allowed to heal over first.

Here are instructions: http://www.plumeria101.com/cuttings101.html

You can root your new cutting in soil or water. Here is a thread on water-rooting: http://www.mauiplumeriagardens.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=674&hl=

I'm glad I came across this forum. I have a plumeria I need to cut back because it's simply too wide to get through the door...I hate to have to cut it back but now that I found out about water-rooting the cuttings my worries are lessened.!!!!!

Mike, I've had some good luck with water rooting, and I usually start out all cuttings this way now, but now that the weather is warming up outside, rooting cuttings will be easier and faster with all the heat available. Good luck and let us know how you make out!

Thanks for the reply! I think I'll have two cuttings. The tree had three branches that just kept branching out from them and getting wider and wider...So sad to not live in a zone 10 climate!!!!!!
I used to live in Taos, NM and would have the plumeria in the living room blooming all winter long!!!!!!!!!

veeja3 - I've had one plumeria bloom: the other two are resisting. This year they'll go in the courtyard with full sun, all day, on the pink cement. I'll give them Bloom Buster and root for the best. It's tiring holding them over and dreaming about blooms that remain dreams. I have zone envy, too! I'm 7a just like you.

Veeja, don't give up! If you absolutely want blooms this summer (and who doesn't) buy a rooted or grafted cutting from Florida Colors or Maui Plumeria Gardens. Make a note (or call them) and tell them that you would like to buy one with an inflo. I'm sure they will be able to accommodate you. That way, you will for sure have flowers this summer. I bought a bunch of cuttings this past winter, and they are rooting now, and some have inflos. Also, check ebay. There is a Dutch auction listed now which has cuttings for a very reasonable price of $2.50 each: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=25463&item=4377986666&rd=1

I will venture to say if not this year then next year you will have plenty of flowers. When you bring it indoors for the winter just give it plenty of light...even if it's artificial. THat will ensure your plumeria keeps blooming!
