This weekend I got approximately fifty more plumeria plants, all new varieties, and this practically doubles what I normally have on hand. Some are still in flower and some even have seed pods! Hurray! These are all cuttings and as per Hetty's recommendation, they are all now in perlite to overwinter.

This will be my first ever experience in handling seed pods and I am excited to finally have some. Thumbs up They have all been grafted onto Celadine, Shirley's Delight, or Riviera Rainbow root-stock and I will keep these growing in a GH over the fall/winter, hoping the seed pods will mature and produce viable seeds for me next summer. Hurray!

Here are a few pictures of those five plants with seed pods. A couple of them even have flower stems and one is in flower, though only a single flower right now.
