This past Spring, I harvested my plumeria seeds and now would like to know how to overwinter my seed babies. I have around 20 small plants in small clay pots. Should I let them go dormant in my garage as I do with my large plumeria trees or instead in my house?

It is considered best to not let first year seedlings go dormant. Keep them warm, and watered, and mist occasionally for ambient humidity.

@Audley1975 your previous post with this question was moved to the Plumeria forum, in case you wondered where it went. You had one answer yesterday as well, recommending the same as Hetty. Keep those babies growing through the winter this year.

I assumed you would have been notified of the change, sorry!
