Can't get my plumeria to root

debbie1000July 14, 2014

I have several plumerias that are doing fine but one that just won't root.

I'm in Florida and it has a couple of leaves about an inch long and that is all. I went to move the pot (it is in about a 6" pot) and it fell out--no roots to hold it in.

Should I cut off the bottom-could it be that there is nothing "live" for the roots to grow from?

Or should I let the cutting dry out in the air only and out of the pot?

It is in the 90's here. I had potted it with just heat, no water--just like the others that are doing fine. But then I watered it like the others but now it is protected from the daily showers.

Not sure which way to go to try to push this one along.

I've noticed some take longer than others to root. I received cuttings from Laura, and I have all but one that have sprouted leaves. I just have the one inside and I mist it from time to time. Don't give up hope yet. It will come along in its own time
