Hello. My plumeria cutting arrived two days ago (I ordered it in christmas and it was cut last wednesday, and this is how it looks now. It probably callused during shipping, I don't know. Is it good to plant? Does it need to dry out a few more days or I can plant it today? I think it looks fine, I so wanted to plant it today, but I have no experience on cutting good callus lol. I'd apreciate any help, thank you. What happens if i plant a cutting that didn't dry for weeks? Like, let's say I cut a plumeria today and plant it three days later. Would it make a difference if I waited one or two weeks/didn't wait at all?

That looks pretty good but I'd personally give it a few more days to callous.

Planting a freshly cut stick can cause it to rot more easily, especially in cooler climates.
