i picked 4 cuttings of new colored plemerias 2 months ago, went through the regular procedure(letting them dry for two weeks.and them putting them into therte new home to start a new life)
the problem is:i related to them as a group and not individually.
two of the now have leaves and looks like they will survive.one shrivelled and rotted ....the 4th one is my question.
it is not reacting...no growth...no shrivelling...stuborn.
it is 4 centimetres in diametre 60 centimetres length very stiff....
my assumption is that i put it in the soil upside down.there are no hints to help me see if i am right or wrong.....what i thought was to take the cutting out and to plant it laying down horizontally .check every day to see if anything happens from one of the sides.
am i on the correct path?

I have never tried planting plumerias horizontally. What are your current daytime highs and overnight lows on your side? I think that will matter more, the ambient growing conditions you have.

I dare not attempt rooting any plumerias during Fall here on my side, it just is not enough time for it. Better to let them go dormant and wait for next Spring again.

We have such varying growing environments Rolling my eyes.

Look for past leaf nodes to determine which way is up

Stewart said exactly what I was going to say. The leaf scars should be 'smiling' (more rounded half on the bottom) Thumbs up

I' ve only rooted them vertically and don't see any advantage to doing it horizonally.

know if there is enough for them so...

That sounds like it will work fine, David. Let them go dormant for the winter and then pot them back up in the spring when they are ready to grow again.

David, that's what a lot of us have to do when we don't have house room or greenhouse room for them to spend the winter. It doesn't seem to slow them down much at all. Most of mine start in growing well as soon as they are re-potted. I am just careful to not water much until I see new leaves or blooms forming. Sometimes the blooms start first!

just to make it 100% clear. if i do leave them outside in the cold nights while wrapping them up with some material be enough.....considering the soil that they are in will keep the roots warm enough?

They can't be left outside at all. Wrapping them wouldn't keep them warm enough. You'd have to do like you mentioned before:

"what if i uproot them and wrap them in cloths and put them horizontally on a high shelf indoors?...[/quote]

They would need to be in a garage or house where they wouldn't freeze. They could be left in their pots or bare rooted for the winter. Either is fine.

Good luck with them, David. Please give us some bloom pics when they bloom next year! I think they are my favorite plants.

lately i am obsesed about finding seed pods of plumeria.
i saw one a year ago on the coast in tel aviv but i was worried i would not have patience time and consistancy to grow them.the pod looks like a bad black bannana

If you find any more seed pods, do gather them and give it a try. I still have seeds from Thailand that I need to get planted. I've never grown Adeniums from seed, but will do it soon.

I'll look forward to your blooms, David. Even the common blooms are gorgeous and do have a nice fragrance.
