Hello all growers of tropical plants!

ATP is celebrating all of our favorite tropical plants in 2 weeks! Hurray! Hurray!

You can help us celebrate by writing an article about any topic relating to tropicals.
No need to get hung up on formatting and grammar- we'll take care of all those pesky details- you just provide the content, and we'll polish it up for you!

Submitting an article is one easy way to get acorns for these fun raffles!!

I have asked new member cycadjungle to write something. I don't suppose you all want me to get carried away about Plumeria again Whistling

Hetty, is there a chance (if not this year, maybe next?) that you could do a "Plumeria for Dummies" tutorial? I really need one! As I said in another post, I adore plumeria but they refuse to grow for me. They remain frozen in time - sticks with a tuft a 4 or 5 leaves (very sad tufts indeed) and a single flower every 2 years if I am lucky. A primer or trouble shooting guide would be sooooo helpful.

I might consider doing something like that and placing it as a sticky on the Plumeria Forum.
