On a sadder note, my one unrooted cutting looked like it was trying to make claws. Removed from pot and YECH - rot. I recut and am trying again. I only gave it a wee bit of water since November. Rooted cutting is in fact forming claws.

Fight that tendency to help root a cutting by watering it. Cuttings can be very sensitive to moisture at the cut-end, and rot results. I will spray/mist those terminal leaves and adjacent stem occasionally, but that might be once every week or two in the spring/summer and perhaps monthly if overwintering it. Plumeria simply can't utilize water until rooted AND leafing out.

Yes Mary - nearly the same time IIRC. How tall is your tallest seedling? Mine is maybe 5 ".

@DavidLMO my tallest seedlings are the pl. Alba with the tallest of those being 9". I have one seedling of Allure that is 7". It has been the "Baby Huey " of the bunch from the beginning. I can definitely see the difference in growth as to the variety of the seed and the medium used for growing.

Need to take a picture of one of Ken's cuttings that I believe has an inflo Crossing Fingers! All of his cuttings are looking good Hurray! Thank you, Ken!

How long does it take for the cuttings to root? I am tempted to take it out of the pot now that I read David rot story. I had not watered but I put it in barely moist soil. I have not watered it since I received the cuttings.

I know I am the world worst rooter. Rooting under my care could spell dead. Rolling on the floor laughing

Audrey, you've only had the cutting for three weeks, and being in PA, I don't know how much heat you have had the cutting in. Three weeks is not long to root a plumeria, particularly early in the season. Though I know lots of people root their cuttings in soil, I only use 100% super-coarse perlite. I don't know what the "best" way is to root them, that's just the way I do mine.

Do you see any evidence of rot at the base of the Celadine? If the base looks normal, firm and greenish, I would not worry. Just be patient. I don't think there is any particular magic number to use for how long it takes to root a cutting. Varieties are all different though the Celadine does root readily. If it makes you feel any better, I have a couple of dozen cuttings that have done nothing, other than a few with inflo. I am still waiting for leaves. I am probably warmer here than you are in PA but I think the off and on cool snaps we have had has slowed down my rooting. When our lows stay above 65F and preferably 70F, things will begin to really speed up with my plumeria - rooting, branching, inflo., and leafing.

TY Ken. Reading all these stories I thought I was taking to long. It was going up and down temp wise I decided to bring them inside until this crazy weather gets its act together. When it was in the 80s days and 60s at night we were getting rain all day and night.

I now have very few cuttings and those I have left are not fully filled-out because of our cool nights over the last 30 days. I am suspending selling anything but Scott Pratt cuttings. Hopefully, I'll soon begin to get warmer nights, consistently above 65F, and that will jump-start not only the rooted plants but also those cuttings that are being rooted.
