First time, first day, planted the plumeria , the orange & yellow one. Live in mid Florida. If it's outside getting sun & it rains(it does that !!) will it hurt it to get wet ?? It says not to water for 3-4 weeks. I guess move it under carport while it rains, if I catch 1st !!!
Is this plumeria rooted or just a cutting?
Cuttings should not receive water until they show signs of growing, otherwise they might rot.
If this is a rooted plant it will be fine, just make sure your medium is well-draining.

I have done several cuttings before but I found that if I let the cutting lay on the side for a few days, the cut end will form a little dry callus or scab.
I would then plant them around 8-10" deep and stake them. In my lanai they got three to four hours of sun a day. Staking is important because as new roots are forming you want to keep the stem as steady as possible to avoid injuring them.
Just a suggestion.

I no longer grow Plumeria but I always left the cuttings laying out in my enclosed porch for a few days to allow the cut ends to callous over before planting them. I never staked mine but they were fairly short cuttings of about 12 inches in length and I always potted them up into small pots.
