I re-potted this plumie yesterday and noticed what look like barnacles on the trunk. Do I need to panic? Overall the plant looks good.

No worries. Those are actually little roots, they often form when there is high humidity.

Oh thank you, Hetty Lovey dubby in a million years I never would have thought roots! I am so relieved. If I took a cutting including "the barnacles" would it take root faster?

It is rust.
This time of year, the plants are starting to defoliate. Not to worry, it is perfectly normal. Don't fix it.

Mike - I am not sure I would have accepted a returned plant under these circumstances, much less 50.

I finally repotted this Plumie cutting I got from my aunt this Jan, this is my third attempt..let's see if I finally will some success later Rolling my eyes.

I kept this cutting wrapped in a newspaper and in a plastic orchid box for about 3 months. I saw this tear drop thing at the tips yesterday..is that normal for Plumie cuttings? Seeing that, I decided to finally pot it and hope for the best..for now it is near our west facing window, it is raining on and off outdoors and still high 40's at night time will try to bring her out gradually.

wow that looks good and green. I know Hetty will be around and can help you more but was the drop white or clear? looks like maybe an inflow was broke or cut off in my experience if the cutting (branch) has white liquid its due to a cut scratch in the skin. if it is a clear could it have been sweating? was air temp warmer then the plumie? i know Hetty has told me you can tell they are waking up when the tips glissin. I have not seed that till this year and its amazing they truly look like they are glissining or wet.


you know i just looked at the pic blown up and i see the drop i say nothing to worries about looks healthy to me. Do you have her outside? 40's and wet is not very good how is your daily temps good and warm?

It looks like it might have been an inflorescence, just like Mike said.

Nope, she is just indoors right now with my other houseplants..we are having some winter like rain storms on and off, and I am afraid to bring her out. Our temps may go hi 60s but night temp still goes down at 45. I learned my hard lesson with the Sanseveira before, so I am keeping this lovely plumie indoors near the window and warm.

Thanks ChefMike and Hetty..! Sigh of relief! Smiling For awhile I was thinking this cutting is crying out to be potted Rolling my eyes.

Hetty this plant is growing like a tree and the one branch is getting too big, could I take it out of the pot, cut the side one off, and let them go dormant now. and root it next spring, or what should I do with it.

I would wait and cut it in the spring.
