Preparing a Plumeria cutting
I'm new to gardening and even newer to plumerias. I have found quite a bit of info about planting a cutting, but not much about how to take a cutting, prepare it and store it.
A coworker was kind enough to give me the plumeria cutting below. From what I read, I should trim the leaves off the plant which I did. What else do I need to do? Do I need to cut off the flowers and that claw thing at the top?
Is this cutting an appropriate size? It is end of September here in Long Beach where I live. Would it be best if I stored the cutting until the spring to plant, or do I have enough time to get it to root before the winter? For storage, I was planning to just stick it in my closet until sometime in March.. does that sound right? Am I missing anything else?
Thanks so much for your help!
