Tips for Rooting Dehydrated Plumeria Cuttings

It is the time of the year when the weather is getting warmer, and it's a great time to start rooting those plumeria cuttings we hid during the winter. Some may be dehydrated, but a wet paper towel wrapped around the stem works well to re-hydrate the stem of the cuttings while rooting.

Thank you Hetty for adding the photo of Gloria Los Angeles! Such a gorgeous bloom!

I'm patiently waiting for mine to bloom. This is a late year for my plumeria but very promising inflos are starting to come out. Here's my Puu Kahea, unfortunately the weeds are also starting to come out *Blush* :

Thanks for the encouragement Hetty! I protected these inflos from the cold snaps since late December, looks like my hardwork will soon payoff. It sure seems like forever since the first time saw these inflos. Whistling
