here are four aztec gold inflos. yes, it smell like peaches in my room. yum! i have more aztec gold, miami rose and gardenia fragrant white cuttings that have rooted and have inflos. it's shaping up to be a good spring!

my new motto is: root cuttings in winter for spring blooms and splendor. Thumbs up

Wow! Peaches! Yummy!
So pretty, Dete!

I'm going to have to pick up another plummie. I'm certain my Pink Perfection is pooping out. Soft at the top. Crying I tried!

hi susie,

post a pic of the plumie and a close-up of the tip when you can.

i bought these cuttings for an experiment. i will probably only keep one aztec gold. the nice thing is that many of them are rooted to some extent and can support the inflos. this is what miami rose will look like.

Just now starting to set buds, should start seeing the first blooms in about 3 weeks. There are a couple just starting to throw a bloom or two now.

I'll take a pic this weekend Dete.
The base of the "trunk" is still hard, softer toward the top.

Beautiful, Dete! Now that I am learning to over-winter plants inside, your pics make me want to try plumies again. I am very happy with how my (large) gardenia plant is thriving through the winter in the house... I wonder if I could do the same with a plumeria. I now have a pretty good sized section of my garden that is all containers, just so I can bring them in.

hi brenda,

thanks! i have found that the 5100K CFL's are the way to go. low energy consumption and good light output. i have run mine for 16 hours each day. i will continue to use them for the orchids, as the plumeria go outside for the summer.

this is where i will be ordering them from now. http://www.skaeser.com/servlet/the-525/85-WATT-HIGH-OUTPUT/D... you can see that you have ~ a 300-w incandescent. that's a lot of light!
