I bought a Plant from Craigslist!!

No-Clue(So Cal Zone 9)June 23, 2012

We're moving so I figured I better learn to sell some stuff on Craigslist... instead I found Plumerias!! Why I would even look on there I do not know.

Anyway, I found a local person so I figured close enough to just see what he has. Turned out he has mostly Celadine which I already have 2 of... but he has a few Daisy Wilcox. Since that was on my wish list I picked up a 5 gal with inflo for $25. White flowers w/ yellow center and pink tips? Does that sound like Daisy Wilcox?

I have to learn to post pics so I can start sharing my plants. Anyway, I figured $25 for a 5 gal w/ inflo even if it's not DW it's still a pretty plant.

Now off to hunt for harder to find plants. :)

Wow, I never thought of Craig's List.
Photos do help, I use flicker.com to hold hundreds of photos for $25.00 per year and you can make good friends on there that share the same passions for plumeria!
I saw a Daisy Wilcox today at Exotica Plumeria in Tampa.
The blooms are huge!

Laura,

Mine are not as pink though... but then my flowers are not as saturated as some I have seen... so I am wondering if it's not due being so close to the ocean?? Anyway, for that price I'm happy to pick up a good 3 tips plant!

Tropic, DH has his own servers so I have a place to put the photos... I just don't know how to post them on here. :(

$25 for a blooming Plumie in a 5 gal pot is a great deal. Congratulations!

Hey James!!!

Great pics.. I love my DW...

SHe was one of my first to show me an inflo when i first started collecting...

No Clue... I do think heat , humidity has alot to do with the coloration of the flowers... I can have the same flower open in the winter, spring and then when it appears in the heat of the summer, it looks entirely different. (Stronger hues..)

Hope this helps..

That is why when i see inflos forming when its time to bring them in for the winter, i feel sad because i know i wont see their true beauty.. but all is good!!!

Have a great day everyone!!

Laura

Ok thank you all! I'm going to try to upload some pictures just as soon as I figured out how. I should ask DH since he's a computer engineer and all... BUT then he will know the extent of my obsession!! And I'm not ready to tell him yet. LOL...

That's a heck of a deal! After I read your post I went immediately to Craig's List and searched for plumeria. Lol!

NC,
THere is a nursery in LA that sells plumies and a ton of Jungle Jacks stuff. I went to the nursery several yrs ago and met Dewaine and Carol there....was fun.

So you can find plumies on CL and some deals but again you really have to be sure of what your buying.
Here are some pics of the Nursery I took..see it is a legit nursery..lol:

NC,
The Nursery is in the N.E. Part of LA....hmm La Habra I think. The guy who owns the nursery posts on CL every year, but he also sells in OC at the Fair Grounds. He sells a lot of JJ's stuff but its the same price as JJ's. There is also several others that sell cuttings and plants at the OC fair grounds.
