Propagation of Plumeria: To grow a duplicate of this plant you need to use a cutting. Grown from seed you will not know what it will turn out to be. Seeds are good if you want to just get different types.
Growing Plumeria: Full Sun and in the 'warmest' spot in your landscape will give you the largest leaves and the most blooms. Do not plant where your lawn irrigation will overwater. Plumeria are more like cactus and like dry periods. Fertilize lightly during bloom period (after leaves come out) with a water soluable fertilizer. Pruning is good but leave a few eyes below each cut.
