I am trying to find folks up here in the north that grow Plumerias without a greenhouse and how you do it. Anyone?

Thanks,

I have one. I don't have a greenhouse. I bring it in in fall and the leaves die and fall off. I barely water it. Then in spring I start watering it more and bring it out on warm enough days. I have had it a few years. I had two others before and never got a bloom and they ended up rotting. The trick is to only water them so they are still almost dry in winter.

Also my garage has windows so it does get some light.

Is yours evergreen? I know there is one that's evergreen but I have a deciduous.

My cousin has the garden where he grows Plumerias without the help of the green house. A few months after he started to grow that plant, he found some pests kind of thing around the plant which was destroying the plant. He used some organic methods to remove them, but was unsuccessful. Finally, he called the pest controller from Pest Control White Plains NY, removed the pests completely. I was amazed that even after using the chemicals the plant was alive and was growing in a proper way.
