Just purchased my first Plumeria in several years from drdawg today. I had them in my yard when I live in South Florida back in the early 2000's. Of course there they were planted in the ground. This will be my first attempt at container growing them here in Eastern Tennessee. I am looking forward to the challenge and the experience and welcome all advice to help me make them strive.

Enjoy them, Dave. I have potted ones now but used to grow them in the ground in the Marshall Islands. They do just fine in pots, and the blooms are always so enjoyable. Pretty much the only difference is having to protect them in winter. Mine either go potted into the house, or bare rooted and stuck in a garage that doesn't ever freeze.

I plan to winter over bare rooted but I have to learn exactly how to do it. I am also searching for a video that demonstrates planting bare rooted as I assume the plant I am getting from drdawg will come as such.

You will be pleased with whatever you buy from DrDawg. They are always well grown, and well packed, and I think he will send full growing info for you.

Thanks to @drdawg I officially start my journey again with plumeria. First time growing them in pots and outside of Florida. Looking forward to the trip. As you can see @drdawg started me off with a beautiful branching rooted PB's Yellow that even has an inflo. Potted up, staked, watered in and placed in the shade area of the front porch for a few days before moving it into the sun. Will report progress as it goes.

Quite a lot of progression since potting up a couple of weeks ago. Blooms soon?

Just an update on my plumeria experience thus far. The photo on the left is the day that I got the plant from @drdawg. It came newly rooted with an inflo. The photo on the right is the plant this afternoon. It flowered soon after but the blooms didn't last very long and the info fell off after the last flower. I initially thought I had overwatered or something but the plant has taken off. You can almost see and hear it grow. I guess all of the plant's energy was supporting the inflo and now that it is gone the root system has established itself and the plant is growing extremely well.

As long as the trunk and branches are staying firm, no mushy area, it is doing okay! At least you saw what the inflo looked like. Just give it time, your plant is acclimating from being grown from a greenhouse, transported to your place and now repotted to a new set-up.

This little plant is really taking off. Starting to get a new branch.
