I am new to Plumerias, how short a cutting can you use to root a plant? I have several cuttings my friend sent me from HI, they are only about 6 to 7 inches, can I still plant them? I am in the Southern California area
Thanks for your help!

Yes, I've had cuttings that short that I rooted, and they're growing well. Good luck!

Yes, as long as they are not too green.

I was able to root two cuttings only 2-3 inches tall. Sadly they died over winter
