Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum and am trying my luck at growing Plumeria from cuttings. They are now ready to go into their own pots. How deep do I plant the cutting in the pots?

I tend to plant them about halfway but there is no hard and fast rule. Make sure there is sufficient space under them so they can spread their roots. They may need to be staked.

@Dutchlady1 - Hetty thank you for your response. Halfway sounds good and I will have to stake the 2 tallest ones. I'm putting all of them into 3 gallon plastic pots with a very well-draining potting mixture. Green Grin!
