dethcheez(Sunny SoCal Z10)May 19, 2012

Just finally got around to cleaning up my beyond a monster of a tree & adding braces & what not

& I would like to start grafting different colors to it

When is the best time to graft a Plumeria tree???

Now when it's coming back & growing leaves


Later in the year after it looses its leaves

If your grafting you need actively growing root stock and once you attach the graft you need consistent warm temps, upper 70's plus. Good Luck

Depends on where u live in So Cal Zone 10. Id actually wait till End of June of beginning of July If your in the IE then June sometime unless you have a greenhouse as the graft takes best when its wwarm.
