I am selling what plumeria cuttings and rooted plants I have at greatly reduced prices, some at 50% retail. I have Celadine, Scott Pratt, Vera Cruz Rose, and Shirley's Delight. They will be nice and plump and will be 12-20" long. Rooted plants may be even taller. I have to reduce the number and size of plants I have before fall dormancy comes. Contact me via Tree-Mail and tell me what you want.

I am doing well. The weather in NYC has been great so far.
Yes, I know the beautiful plants that you grow. I don't have any room on my window sill for another addition to my small collection. Will have to just watch. Most likely will regret not getting something this time around.

Ivy, I will be here when you are ready for the next batch. Whistling

Perhaps one day soon, you will have a place where you can really grow a bunch of tropical plants, not just a handful. I know you love your plants and they have an important place in your heart.

I may be making my new home in or near Virginia after I retire. Definitely want to go southward and leave city life.
Must have a place for plants and herbs. Will be able to have as many Plumerias that I want. I want many!.

That sounds like a good plan, Ivy. The further south you go, and being close to a large body of water is an advantage, the more tropical plants you can grow.

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Ken, my package arrived today!!! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! These plants are gorgeous! The root balls are superb!

One question though...On the cuttings. They have callused over...Would it be best to do a fresh cut? Or just leave it as is?

No, no. Don't cut them. The callus is necessary to root them. They should be just right for potting up.

1. Honey Queen - 3-tip
2. Orange Blossom Special
3. Rose Red - 2-tip
4. Malaysian Red
5. Vera Cruz Rose - 3-tip with stalk
6. Celadine - 2-tip

Just contact me via T-Mail with "wants" and I will quote pricing

Ken, I'd be interested in a Celadine and Orange Blossom Special. Could you please Tree-mail me with your prices, and a 'guesstimate' on shipping?

I'd gladly pay you for them ahead of time, but would you mind holding them for me until maybe Sept. 7th? Just so they don't arrive in a state of cooked mush . . it's really hot here this week.

I did not know that, Hetty. I will make a note of it. Thanks for the info.

Elaine, are you interested in rooted or cuttings? How many tips (if you care about that). I can hold them as long as you wish. Of course, plumeria love heat........ Whistling I would remove all the leaves but the small, terminal ones, and do that minutes before boxing.

Elaine, if you think it is hot there, Friday and Saturday's forecast is a 110 F heat-index. Sticking tongue out

Yeah, we had 105 heat index here yesterday. It gets SO hot if it doesn't cloud over in the afternoons but luckily that is a pretty rare occurrence. The Gulf surface water temp is 90deg. right now too so even the sea breeze is soupy-warm.

I'd prefer rooted cuttings if you have them. Let's keep an eye out for a weather 'window' when there are some clouds returning. Maybe there will be a tropical storm to cool us off at this end . . . Whistling

OK, rooted plants is your preference. Many of my plants are simply too large now to ship rooted. I won't use any box longer than 36" and thus that's as tall as the plant can be (including leaves). Using any box bigger than this just costs too much. so I don't even pretend to advertise them larger than this. Lots of people would love a 6' tall plant, such as a fiddle leaf ficus (which my sister-in-law just purchased [locally] for $175) but when I tell them shipping would be $50, well, that's the end of the conversation. Whistling

I have a nice rooted 'Celadine' and 'Orange Blossom Special' and those will be fine to ship out the week of Sept. 7. I have a lot of plants rooting right now. If you have other varieties in mind, I may have those being rooted. Just let me know if you have others in mind.

I will send you a T-Mail concerning invoicing.

Ken, do you have any more cuttings available, and what are your prices? I'm trying to scrape up a few dollars. I've always wanted to replace the one a former friend killed when the heater in her greenhouse failed and it froze. She didn't bother to try to compensate me, especially since she insisted that it would do better than staying in my unheated garage (which it had done before). I get upset everytime I think about it. Anyway, LMK.

I have some really great 'Celadine' plants and the cuttings will be nice and large and plump. For me at least, this variety is the easiest to root, makes a great root-stock plant, is a vigorous grower and a dependable bloomer. What more could you want. Oh, the fragrance is wonderful and in fact is the specific fragrance that all other plumeria varieties are judged against. These plants are cuttings from a 25 year old "Mother" plant and the mother plant is in bloom right now. Because this is one of my oldest plants, I have lots of cuttings available and they are priced at only $7.00 each, plus shipping. Shipping won't be bad since you are in SC. It is the least expensive variety I sell. The price you see is the ATP discount price. The regular price would be $8.95.

If you are interested in something else, check my website, [url=www.tropicalplantsandmore.com]www.tropicalplantsandmore.com[/url]. But check with me before ordering anything from the site. I am shipping out three orders of plumeria cuttings Monday, and the total order is for 28 cuttings. A few of those plants you see on the website will be exhausted and not available. All the prices you see will be discounted 10% because you are an ATP subscriber.

Just let me know via T-Mail.

Ken

P. S. Plumeia will take cold generally down to 25F, so long as it is brief (no more than a couple of hours). Below that, bring the plant(s) inside. I lost 80% of my plumeria 4 years ago and they were all in an unheated garage. We had several days of temperatures that never got above freezing and I was too dumb to realize the plumeria couldn't take that kind of temperature. Now ALL mine come inside and remain dormant through the fall/winter months.
