JL Dane

BobTheWizard(CA 9)August 12, 2013

Is JL Dane very common? Anyone have one? My wife showed me a pic of one and likes it.. So now I'm looking for a cutting or small potted one... heheh..

Perhaps I should check at JJ's....

I don't think that it is super rare but still pretty pricey. I am on my second J.L. Dane and I have spent over $250. on both! If you really want one, check Ebay, you may be able to bid on one and MAYBE you can get it for less than $100! GOOD LUCK!

I've seen them on eBay go for under $100

Shipping into California would be problematic though...

But I'll have to look into it.

They come from Hawaii, and shipping is inexpensive and easy. Almost all my plumerias have come from HI this year and I'm in CA.

I also agree that getting plumeria from Hawaii to California is not a big deal. I've gotten both cuttings and rooted plants with no issues, usually just shipped USPS priority mail. Just buy from a reputable seller and you should be fine.

However, at the Jim Little Nursery in Oahu they are $300 a cutting for single tips and $5 for additional tips if available.

I pulled up the confirmation email from August of last year after buying JL Dane off eBay to see what I paid.. On August 12th, 2012 I paid $61 and the rooted cutting arrived in Texas from Hawaii in about 4 days. Has grown great so far.

That's a tough one. I guess it really depends on the EBay seller. Normally I would buy from JL before anything on Ebay. You are 99.9% guaranteed a JL Dane from Kara G at JL. In this case if those numbers hold true that's a steep premium to pay.

Its a piece of cake to ship from HI to the mainland. Any legitimate grower has a certification which permits the shipping.

I've now used Matt H (1-stop-aloha) a couple times on eBay and he ships just fine.

I'm very confident I got he real deal from Matt. It bloomed not long after I got it as it had an inflo when it arrived. Flowers were beautiful. There are a couple of reputable sellers on eBay that haven't failed me (flowers come true) and Dane is so distinguishable in form and color

I agree. Matt is awesome, and very easy to deal with. I never had an issue with him, and if you need to contact him, he responds promptly, at least he did with me! I have no issues ordering from him except.....HE ALWAYS HAS MORE THAT I WANT!!! LOL!

1-stop is where that eBay auction is through... The price is too high for me at this time. I'm not that confident yet for that price....

Sure is pretty though.

Disney... I think you mentioned being able to get it for MAYBE less than $100? 6 hours left and it's at $80 plus shipping.. Lol...

I can't do that at this time. Maybe next growing season I'll look at it again.

Of course by then I'll have a much larger list of "must haves" I'll need to pick from.. heheh
