I brought back my very first cuttings from Maui, but that was several decades ago. I am sure there will be those with (more recent) knowledge of where to go. There were Plumeria "farms" all over Maui and I would think there would be lots of them on Oaha as well.

Have a fun visit.

Koko Crater Gardens has one of the largest Plumeria collections in Hawaii. But they won't let you take cuttings there.
However, you will see plenty of trees growing in private gardens around the island and most people will be happy to give you a piece if you ask.

Have a GREAT trip!

@Kingbingo, Did you bring home some plumeria? Where did you find them?? I'll be there this weekend.

They really are all over the neighborhoods if you look. Problem is everyone has man-eating dogs so even attempting to knock on a door can be a challenge. Post an ad on craigslist and you'll get some calls.

Oh, yes. In every garden AND in the wild, too. Most of the flora and fauna are almost unrecognizable simply because of their giant size! What we see as houseplants, are beautiful giant specimens growing on the side of the road. I saw the most stunning yellow plumeria twin trees that looked a tad bit neglected. The flowers, however were stunning. But I guess when one can just get any color at any time and set them out to in fertile soil where they simply grow, well, they just don't babied as much as mine do? I will have to check to see where the USDA booth is in the airport. I don't remember seeing one. I did buy one yesterday. But it was packaged and approved.

right as you walk inside, they are spaced every 100 feet or so. not all of them are manned, might have to walk a bit to find a working one. i think you still have to declare the approved ones.
