Just curious, but what are the 1st signs someone would observe to tell if root rot might be setting in?

You would probably see the leaves begin to yellow and drop during the months when those leaves should be growing. I would think that would be the first "sign" of root problems.

Just be sure your plants are in very well-draining soil mix, have bright light, and that they are not subjected to (prolonged) cold temperatures. That should/would eliminate root problems. Also keep in mind, plumeria that are dormant, or even those that haven't yet begun to grow new leaves and would be considered semi-dormant, don't need much moisture at all. Leaves and transpiration/photosynthesis dictate their need for moisture. That's the reason we don't water those plants that are being rooted. They can't utilize moisture and thus are prone to rot.
