Where can I get my cutting rooted for me?

ShellysPlumies(9 (southern cali))April 2, 2013

Hey guys!

So I had recently posted about how I have this cutting that has the most beautiful orange blooms that my nieghbor gave to me. She gave me one previously but it died :( But since she is really nice, she gave me another.

So where can I send my cutting to get rooted? I really dont want to be let down again and Im willing to pay but not too much..

Hi Shelly,

Since you're in SoCal you can probably get in touch with Diane Gotti and she can graft it for you. I know Florida Colors also does grafting if you send them your cutting. I haven't heard of a plumeria rooting service yet (maybe there should be one!).

Of course if you're not feeling gun-shy about rooting anymore, you could give it another try. Remember to let it callous for at least 2 weeks before you pot it up. Use well drained mix and bottom heat if temps get below 60F.

PS: That sounds like a lovely plant, do you have a picture of its blooms? Too bad her tree is still small but she seems very generous in sharing some cuttings with you :-)

Shelly,

You can get a hold of her on facebook. I see her posts on there frequently. There's also a video presentation of her grafting technique.

Here is a link that might be useful: Grafting Plumeria demonstration
