I have several nice, plump 'Celadine' cuttings that have just been put into pots to root. The 'Celadine' is a vigorous grower, has easy-to-root cuttings, and is a faithful bloomer. The fragrance of the 'Celadine' is what ALL other plumeria's are judged against. This is the classic Hawaiian lei flower. They are anywhere from 16" up to 22", are 1-2" at the base, all have leafs forming, and several have a flower stalk forming. I would be glad to sell you either a cutting with flower stalk or if you will wait a couple of weeks, they will have begun rooting. A cutting with flower stalk is $15 and the rooted plant will be $20, plus either $7.95 or $12.95 shipping, depending on where you are located. A cutting without a flower stalk is only $12 and if rooted, only $15. Just let me know if you have interest. This is my first listing of my 'Celadine' cuttings/plants, so this would be kind of a "pre-season" sale. I will have other varieties in a few weeks.

Wow! Wonderful! So it takes about a couple of weeks to have some roots showing? I've been waiting for more than a month (maybe 6 weeks) for some cuttings to root so Icould pay for them to be shipped, but no luck until now. Maybe I was forgotten all together. Are all the cuttings one-tipped? I am very interested because I really want a Celadine.

If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0
Keep smiling, it makes people wonder what you've been up to.

Mima, from what I picked up in another (now, -sadly -defunct) forum, Celadine is one of the easiest, and most dependable, "rooters ", and a perfect plumeria for inexperienced plumie growers (like errm, -me) . The only one Ive ever found easier to root, was a "mystery " cutting I received from a generous Plumerian, some weeks ago...I never saw any plumeria ever root as quickly, as that one did! Think it rooted even faster than Celadine, sure wish I knew what type of plumeria that cutting was from, because it upstaged my Celadine in "rootability "...(is that even a word?)
As bonus, Celadine tends to be an early bloomer.

I am even more inexperienced than you haha. I am afraid I have a brown thumb and I am so obsessed not to kill my plants. We'll see what is going to happen. I'd wait for my b-day present to bloom first, before getting another plumie.

Cyra, perhaps when the "mystery" plumeria blooms, you will be able to ID it. I would love to know what it is, the color of the flowers, and the fragrance. Ken

Me, too, Ken, never saw anything, quite as vigorous, and here's the kicker : that cutting was thin, and green, not fat, sturdy, and from older wood, as I'd been informed was optimal. So, when it comes to plumeria, it just goes to show you, -always expect surprises! It's new growth is lovely, pointy-leaved, with a distinct brownish -reddish cast to the petioles, I will definitely watch this cutting, I do believe I'm developing a soft spot for it;)

Ken,

I read on another forum that Plumerias can be overwintered bare-root in colder regions. Do you know if that will work? If that's true, I am very interested in one of your cuttings. I would love to grow some outside in the summer, but I have very little space inside during the winter. Thanks for any tips! Smiling

Hi, Jill. Even though you are quite a bit further north than me in NE Mississippi, our non-tropical climate require the same care for plumeria. This is what I do and have done the same thing for well over a decade, with good success.

In October I will pull all my plumeria out of their pots or the landscape. I try to time this at least two weeks before I expect our first heavy frost and/or freeze. I shake off what soil I can and simply pile them under some oak trees and leave them that way for a couple of weeks. During that time many of the leaves will turn brown and fall off the plants. I then (mid-October to 1st of November) hose off the remaining soil and remove what leaves are still on the plants. I will let the plants dry for a day or so and than put them all in large, black, contractor bags. These bags then go into corners of closets inside the house or under a bench in my (now) enclosed porch. They will remain that way, without light, water or soil until March-April. The stems will shrivel a bit due to loss of moisture, but when I pot them up in the spring, two weeks later they are as plump as when I "put them to sleep" in the fall.

I hope this information helps you. You can grow them just as well as I. When I ship a plant(s), I also include "care" instructions, and these instructions are all you need to grow specific tropical plants successfully. Contact me via Tree-Mail or drdawg97@gmail.com if I can be of help. Also check out [url=www.tropicalplantsandmore.com]www.tropicalplantsandmore.com[/url]. I think you will find my website informative.

I don't remember if I was able to mail you that I received the Plumeria cutting. It's been potted up and watered, now I'm waiting for roots! What a fun project. It's green and large and budded out - and in very good condition. Thank you. Smiling
