YAY Doris!! Nice huh??

I would leave the other plant alone, you may want to put it in a bigger pot (or in the ground...). Remember, these are trees..... Smiling

Doris, you can put it in the ground and dig it up in the winter, a lot of people do this. Since they go dormant in the winter they don't mind.

Dutchlady,

I am new to Plumerias - have a couple rooted cuttings in pots that I got this year. I live in Zone 6a on border with 6b
I had planned on keeping them potted all the time but you say I could ground plant them - then pull them up in the fall as they go dormant? Would you just keep them bare root all winter?
If I get more Info I may try this next year.

I also have plumeria seedlings (started from seeds I got). From what I have read, it is suggested to keep them in active growth the first winter to give them time to grow.
If this is not the best thing to do for them, please let me know.


Thanks,
Lisa

You are exactly right, Hetty, about digging up the Plumeria for the winter. I live in zone 8a (was 7b for decades) but we get really hard freezes here in NE Mississippi. I dig up all my Plumeria in early October, whether they are in the ground or in pots, shake off most of the soil, and just lay them under my oak trees, allow the leaves to turn yellow and fall off. Before the first frost, which could be 2-4 weeks after digging them up, I remove what leaves are left, wash the rest of the soil off, take cuttings from the larger plants, and put the plants in large, heavy contractors bags, according to variety. Be sure you allow the rooted plants to dry thoroughly before bagging. The bags will thus have a mixture of cuttings and rooted plants. The bags either go in closets or on my enclosed porch for the winter. They will spend the next four or so months completely dormant in the bags. When spring arrives, and there is no further chance of frosts, I take them out, perhaps take a few more cuttings and put the rooted, though dormant plants in the ground or in pots. I pot up the cuttings and root them.

Thanks for the info Ken.
This will be the first winter I try to keep plumeria.
I had a couple last year but did not get them inside soon enough and an early frost got them.
This year I will do as you suggest and force them dormant weeks before danger of frost.
