I am renting a house that has a Hawaiian plumeria plant in the yard. How can I propagate it so that I can keep one for myself when I move?

Plumeria may be propagated by cuttings. For best results, take 12 - 18 inch long cuttings anytime from winter through summer and allow them to set in an indoor location for at least a couple of weeks to heal over.

Plant the cuttings in May through July when the weather has warmed up. Dip the base end in a rooting hormone and set it into a well-drained potting mix. Keep the soil moist but not soggy. Wet soil is the fastest way to kill a new plumeria.
