Hello, This is my first post and I am unsure of the formatting and proper prcoedures..so here goes with my apologies in advance for any ineptness on my part. I bought a few plumeria cuttings 8 moths ago. I planted them and had 2 of 3 start growing. But I fell in love with them and ordered more. I now have 36 new cuttings - 21 single tip, 9 -tri-tip and 5 multiple tip. I know I think I may have impulse issues. So my questions -

1. After the outside weather becomes plumeria friendly, they start rooting and I can take them outside, how much will they grow?
2. How fast will they grow?
3. And since they seem to prefer minimal watering how do I protect then during rain storms?

Any insight is appreciated.

Once they have rooted, they need a full sun location, Fast draining soil (think Hawaii where the rainfall is over 100" a year, but mostly volcanic pumice). They will grow fairly slowly in pots, but will get too big to move/ store for winter eventually, if happy.
