I have been looking for some Plumeria and Desert rose seeds. Does anyone have any or know where I can get them? I know Ebay has some. Also interested in some Brugs such as trumpets. If any one has either of those they would like to sell please let me know. I have a few plants and I do take good care of them. If you know of some web sites I can go to please inform me. Hey everyone have a blessed day. I hope to have some luck on this one. Thanks for your help. SHIRLEY

Shirley, hello and welcome! Plumeria are so easy to start from cuttings that if you live anywhere they grow outdoors you should just go and ask for cuttings from your neighbors. Let the cut end dry, stick it in some potting soil, and then wait until it shows new growth and start watering and fertilizing it. Very simple, and SO much faster than growing from seeds.

The same is true of Brugmansia, only you root them in water or wet Perlite, usually takes only a week or two. Again much easier and more dependable than starting from seeds.

We also have a whole forum on Plumeria and one for Brugmansia on this site. Go to the Home Page and just scroll down the list of forums to find it. There are lots of people on there who also might send you cuttings for the cost of postage.

There's a fellow on the Orchids forum who also sells Plumeria as started plants as well as cuttings. He started a whole bunch of Adeniums (desert rose) last year so he might have started plants of those, too. His site is

Welcome! scheek. You are most welcome to come and check out our Plumeria forum. Growing from seed is rewarding but requires patience. Elaine is right that Plumeria are very easy to grow from cuttings. However, in your area you may want to acquire already established plants; I would be happy to recommend a renowned Plumeria nursery.
