I just fed and watered my plumeria. They are all leafing out nicely, except for the new cutting, of course. The new cutting is protected under the eaves on the window sill. Should I drag the bigger pots under the eaves to protect them from all this rain we are getting. It's not a steady rain. But rather hit or miss light rains predicted for the entire rest of the week. I think I have Rot Phobia.

As long as your medium is well draining, you should not have any rot issues at this time of year. All mine are out, rain or shine.

As long as your overnight temps are not going quite cold, like in the low 40's, and temps go much higher during the day, then your plumie is okay to get rained on. They enjoy the rain when it is warm and good drainage as Hetty said.

We have the same rain you are getting coming our way. We are supposed to have 50-70% chance for the next six days straight! Sighing! My plummies are staying out, rain or shine. And the 1000 other plants. Whistling
