Plumeria forum: Winter did not come this year and my plumerias know it

In anticipation of near freezing temps which we almost always get here in the foothills of San Diego, I moved many potted plumeria into my garage. Winter never arrived and now in mid February we are getting temps in the 78-80 range. Assuming we do not get a cold snap, should I move my plants back outside and resume watering/fertilizing? thanks.

Have you checked the weather reports? It's supposed to be cold and cloudy for the rest of this week. I don't know how cold you get in the foothills, but we haven't been below 43 here, and all my Plumerias are doing fine. The two in ground still have some ratty leaves.

Welcome! richincret.
As the money people say, past performance is no guarantee of future results. Just because it has been warm, will it stay that way??
I would check with your local plumeria groups to see what they suggest. Southern California Plumeria Society is one.
