Growing from seed is the only way; but you will need patience!

No special equipment needed.
There are plenty of northern growers, it is possible to do this but you may need to supply extra light.
California is not humid, they grow plumeria like crazy Smiling .

Certainly less work, less time, and you'll get blooming more quickly.
