Unless the forecast dictates something differently, I will begin transitioning all my plumeria for winter dormancy in a couple of weeks. I would like to reduce the number of cuttings I have to store over the cold months. Some of my plants are so large, I have to take cuttings to get them into their storage bags. Some of the cuttings will be multi-tipped and a few have flower stems, some multiple stems. My plumeria are at their plumpest now, so you will have great cuttings to root next spring (or perhaps now if you are in S. CA or FL?).

Contact me by Tree-Mail if interested in end-of-the-year cuttings. I will tell you what's available. I am not even putting a price on what I have. I will let you tell me what you want and what price you are willing to pay. This is the best deal you will ever see.

It seems so tempting. I am in the wrong plant zone for it to survive.

Hi, Ivy. Even though your zone is much colder than mine, you would literally have to do the same thing I do every year - allow your plumeria to go completely dormant, no soil, no moisture, no light for 4-6 mo. I just put mine in large, black contractor bags and stick the bags in the corners of closets. You could put the bag(s) anywhere that does not freeze. In the spring, the dormant plants are rooted, or if already rooted they are potted or put back in the landscape, and they begin their new growth cycle.

Mine would be indoors. They would not freeze. Just afraid that they would not survive in the winter as cuttings. All of my plants live under lights.

Ivy, both my rooted plants and cuttings survive 4-5 months inside the house. Dormancy is completely normal for these plants, grown in temperate climates. Just be sure they stay completely dry and without light during this period. You don't want to stimulate them with light and without moisture, you won't have to worry about rot. I have done this for two decades and the survival rate (though this is a guess) has to be greater than 95%.

I'm guessing your plumies are all wrapped up for winter now, but I wanted to let you know that both cuttings I bought from you last spring rooted and leafed out very nicely! They're now in the basement, going dormant, and I'm hoping for blooms next year. Thank you! Smiling
I'm learning to dance in the rain. Thank you, Sally & Chris.

I tip my hat to you.

Yep, they all went into their temporary homes (contractor bags) and are now in a guest closet for the winter.

AM I WAY TO LATE FOR EVEN A SMALL CUTTING? In South Ga. U.S.A. it would have to go dormant too, but I have a small green house on back where things like desert roses go. Drooling

Welcome! to ATP. This is not a good time to start cuttings as I am sure drdawg will tell you. In spring there will be plenty available.

Welcome to ATP, BT. I sent you an email, and like Hetty said, this is not the time to start a plumeria cutting.
