Good afternoon,

I just received the below plumeria cutting. You will see that the bottom of the cutting is not freshly cut. In order to plant this and let it grow, is it suggested to cut the bottom so it's fresh and then stick it in soil? Do I stick it in the soil as it is? I also have some quick clone. Should I use it on this cutting?

Thanks!

Hi Jen !! If the end is clean and dried over you can put it a couple inches deep in your rooting media...If the end is ugly you may elect to cut it but then dry it out on a piece of newspaper in a shaded area for a week to 10 days before planting...That is what worked for me....I used a rooting hormone also but I am sure that many do not..I am sure other more experienced plumie people will help here also...Have a good day !!

Yes, between all the plants, this is a full time job. Orchids are new to me, yesterday, because of all the storms coming down here everyone was talking about fungicide.. I was like "what??!! I need that now??" So now I have to go the store and get some. I am learning every day.
