Welcome! Rich. The optimal time for propagating Plumeria is when they are just breaking dormancy, in early spring.

There are different techniques, Rich, and I've only ever used the slant graft. I suggest you check around on the web and some people recommend practicing with carrots....... Whistling

Welcome! floresdele. You need to go to your profile and update it, stating where you are located. Location is so important when answering many of the questions.

Certainly, plumeria can be rooted from cuttings. I do several dozen every year. For me at least, that window-of-opportunity has passed. I don't begin rooting cuttings after September 15. I'm in NE Mississippi and my plumeria will begin to go dormant in about six weeks.

Welcome! floresdele! Here is a picture of roots on a cutting that has been in perlite for about 6 weeks.

I am impressed with that mass of roots. I never, ever have cuttings with roots like that. At least not in perlite. I would imagine that a longer growing season allows a lot of latitude when rooting plumeria.
