I'm in Zone 10 Orange county. Is now an okay time of year to transplant rooted Plumerias in ground or would I be better off waiting until early spring (February). I'm talking 2 - 5gallon sized plants. If I didn't move them into the ground now, then is my understanding correct that I could just store them in their pots in after the leaves fall off, with no watering at all until I plant? It wouldn't die? Thanks!

Welcome! motifone
I would definitely wait until spring to plant in the ground, and yes, your plants will go dormant during the winter and will require no water or light during that time. Just keep them frost-free.
