i have 4 new cuttings of plumeria i prepared last year.
i kept them inside the house the whole winter.they are 40 centimetre long with no leaves.i am sure they have rooted since they developed new leaves last year.
my questions are:
1/one started to show some developement of leaves....does it mean i can take him and the others out into direct sunshine?the nights here are still cold sometimes 8 celcius.or they function on a diferent code like the lenght of day?
2/should i wait for each cutting to show signs of awaikining before i take them out?
3/is there any chance to see flowers from them at there first year?

Hello David
You can certainly take your newly rooted plumeria outside at this time. If your nights are still around 8 degrees, you may want to place them close to the house where they are a little protected. In any case do not leave them in those temperatures if it rains.
You can certainly see flowers the first year. But this is no guarantee!
Once you start to see good new growth I would go ahead and fertilize them with a well-balanced fertilizer.
Show us a picture if you get a chance!!
