Temps vary a few nights 50's most nights in the 70's. And warm sunny days in the 80's. A leaf drop here and there. Some new growth and flowers. Poor plumeria can't decide if they want to go dormant or not! Sticking tongue out

I have a few still blooming but even at our record high 90's I have some that have no leaves anymore. There are some that have leaves but they are starting to turn ugly yellow both from rust. Very few green healthy leaves now for me.

Same here. Goes to show that daylight hours and quality have more to do with dormancy than temperature.

My Plumie Celadine is doing okay too so far with our low overnight temps going 47 to 50F and now in a cold rain. Current temps staying at 50F. There is some lower leaf yellowing, but the rest of the leaves looks very good, seems to have grown some more. Finally some much needed rain again..maybe cold..but we will take it! I think the intervals of rain is okay, it is just intermittent rains for two days, then dry time for the next 9 days..so there is some breathing space.

But will see how it reacts tomorrow night, I saw our overnight temp forecast at 39F.

Mine easily handle the mid-30's, so long as it isn't long duration. When it gets to the point of freezing or heavy frost, they need to be inside. We are supposed to get down to 30F Sunday morning. All my plants will have to be in by then and since we have a huge ballgame Saturday, and a house full of guests Friday/Saturday night, I have to get it all done by Friday afternoon.

We will have mid to high 30's starting tomorrow night and daytime highs of 59F to 69F till next rain event. Will see if my Plumie Celadine will be bothered especially after today's cold rain.

At least the sun came out this afternoon and with a gentle breeze, will help dry my succulents Smiling

They tend not to like cold and wet.
