|I ordered my cuttings from just plumerias at the end of march. I recieved the cuttings within a couple of days and they were beautiful! They were exactly how they were described. The cuttings were well wrapped and packaged. I followed their instructions that came with them. It's just past 4 weeks now and the cuttings are doing really well. You have to wait at least two weeks to water them. Believe me.... just wait and within a week after watering them, they start to do something. You need a lot of patience, heat and light.
I live in pennsylvania and it was really cold when the postman left them on my porch. My cuttings are healthy and happy! I am using a plant light about 18 hours a day because I can't put them outside yet. I look at them throughout the day and this past saturday it seemed like the new leaves grew twice their size by about 11 p.m. on saturday!
Short and sweet.... just plumerias delivered exactly what they said they would. I followed their instructions to a T and I have beautiful plants starting! Thanks just plumerias, for the beautiful cuttings!

|I purchased 4 plumeria cuttings. I was a beginner with plumerias but was given instructions by the owners of Just Plumerias on how to root my cuttings. I was successful with 2 but 2 became mushy and rotted. I notified them and they replaced my cuttings. I said, "I'm a beginner and probably killed the cuttings myself!" Scott insisted that if I was successful with 2 it was most surely the other two plumerias were not good cuttings. It relieved my anxiety to know I was backed up by the company. I recommend them highly.

|I purchased 3 cuttings last fall from Just Plumeria, and have had wonderful luck with them. The people on this FB page have great help for growers in different growing areas. I live in a cold winter climate and put the plants on a south facing sun porch. I used a 60w bulb, a small plastic tent to keep them warm through the winter and I have leaves on all the plants and a bloom stem on one!
These have been fun to grow through the winter. Can't wait until it's warm enough to set them outside. I am purchasing another promotion of cuttings and can't wait to get them started as well. This is a great source for these beautiful flowering plants. Thanks Just Plumeria for being a great source!

|I ordered my Plumeria cuttings from Just Plumerias and received them promptly in great condition. My order came with detailed, clear instructions on how to plant the cuttings, watering them, and basic care from planting to the blooming stage. Anytime I had a further, more detailed question I was always able to reach someone on the phone, or on Facebook, who was happy to answer my questions. I love browsing their website to see the photos they've posted. It gives me a clear idea of what to expect in the near future when my cuttings turn into full grown trees! Thank you "Just Plumerias" for such great service and help in growing my Plumeria trees!

|I have ordered from this company 3 times. I keep ordering from them because the cuttings are great. The last order I received was 2 double tips and 2 triple tips. They don't have numerous varieties to choose from, but I like their collection. Great pricing too.

|No problems here. I ordered 3 cuttings from them and received 4 because of some FB special they have. All arrived in good condition and rooted nicely. When I called to order, the lady answered all the questions I had about rooting since I had never done it before. She was very helpful.

|Risky; they are cheap enough but do not back their promises. Shorted me a plant once. Misleading plant descriptions; not label their plants

JUST PLUMERIA is using a stolen picture to sell their "PINK PARFAIT" ..SO BUYER BEWARE!!! If you go to their FACEBOOK Page they state "the Pink Parfait and Apricot hybrids will be available in about 3 weeks. Coming in from South Africa.". The 1 and ONLY pic they use is a stolen one from Gardenweb and it is of a plumeria called RED DUSK. If you google Red Dusk Plumeria under "Images" you will see a pic to a Gardnweb thread where the picture is located from 2009. Just plumeria started a thread on their Facebook page and posted the stolen picture on April 8, 2011, here is the link to the FB post .
Basicall if you do not have the flowers to take pictures of you do not have the plant... Basically this is a Bait and Switch aka Fraud as Red Dusk is not Commercially available and is from Maui Hawaii. So if you bought a "PINK PARFAIT" I would compare the blooms to the picture, blow up/magnify the picture if you need to see more details of the flower in the pic. To me when a vendor uses stolen pictures to sell product they do not have it is a HUGE ethical issue.... Again BUYER BEWARE!!!
On June 20th, 2012, Theplantpusher added the following:
I noticed that the FB post and pic were deleted after someone posted on the FB thread with the pic about it not being your pic. Also you stated before you deleted the thread that you "stopped purchasing from this supplier 8 months ago" but on your website you still offer the suppliers varieties including the Pink Parfait ( So then does this mean your selling OLD 8 mon old cuttings?) and
your still using the pic Red Dusk as Pink Parfait on your website Justplumerias.com site to sell the Pink Parfait . You also had a pic from MPG that you were using and also deleted it after there was a posting on Gardenweb about it. If your gong to use other peoples pictures you should at least put a disclaimer/liability waver stating where the pic came from or that is not yours as it makes you seem dishonest.
Here is a lilnk to the Gardenweb thread showing the Printscreens of the threads and pics before you deleted them
If Paypal were made aware of this issue they may not do business with you as it may be considered fraudulent.
I guess this is the price for not using your own pics of "Pink Parfait". If I were a seller I would not post a pic that I had not taken myself or at least seen other pics of the same variety of flower to verify that the suppliers pics were legit. Now this is more a creditability issue as it is a "he said she said" with the So African supplier being the scapegoat.
Company representative comment on July 20, 2012:
Thanks for pointing that out. We were contacted by this grower from South Africa who said he had the Pink Parfait and Apricot and this is the picture he sent to us. We have not ordered from him in over 8 months since the cuttings were not up to the quality of our standards, and now we are finding out that he pulled a picture off from a webiste.
Another reason that we will not be ordering from him in the future.
In the meantime, please check out our multi tip (double and triple tip) cuttings everyone is raving about on our facebook page.
Thanks for the heads up.

|I bought my first four cuttings from JustPlumeriaS in person at their cart located at Downtown Disney in Florida. Their representative was knowledgeable and personable, very patient in answering questions and very friendly. I carefully followed all of their directions to transport the cuttings safely home and pot them.
1 cutting turned black and soft, rotting - and so I contacted the company per their replacement policy. It took many days to receive any kind of return contact despite daily phone calls and finally I was able to speak with someone who made arrangements to replace the cutting and also ship my additional purchase of two hybrid cuttings.
The cuttings arrived in a box shoved in with crumpled newspaper sheets all to one side so that the cuttings still rattled in the box. I was very surprised that they had not been wrapped more carefully especially since they had been shipped in late October and it was cold here in Zone 6. One of the cuttings had a broken tip. Considering the trouble I had getting in touch with someone previously, I decided to pot the cutting anyway to see how it did since it had another tip that could sproud leaves. All of my cuttings now have their root systems established with growing leaves and looking good, however one of the cuttings which should have been a white plumeria has flower buds that appear white with pink swirls - so I'm not sure that my cuttings are actually the colors that I'd thought when I'd bought them.
My experience with the company in person was wonderful and exciting, as I'd never grown plumerias before - however, my experience with the company over the phone was less pleasant, actually rather tedious and they were not as careful in packaging their cuttings for shipment as I would have hoped. My opinion about them remains neutral.
