I have put about all the plumeria that this mulched space can comfortably hold. I not only ran out of space but also ran out of large, 18-24" diameter pots. I have six more to pot up and they'll go out in the landscape that borders my uphill area. I grouped these plumeria (sort of) according to variety. This area has a timed irrigation system, so hopefully, the plants won't require a lot of (hose) watering.

I have two dozen cuttings left over from last October that never rooted over the winter. They all look good and I hope they will quickly root now that it is getting warmer.

That is quite is sight, Ken! Can't wait to see a picture of them all leafed out. Is that Spanish moss I see? What a great space to enjoy your plumeria. Like the sign too. I'm thinking I will need to utilize the shady spots under the citrus trees come summer.

I do grow a lot of Spanish moss and a bit is hanging from a couple of the plumeria. What you might also be seeing is a really spectacular Tillandsia, T. recurvata, attached to a trellis which is attached to a Vanilla Orchid.
