I also ordered on the 19th and they were due to arrive yesterday according to the USPS website, but they came today. Not a biggie. They are some nice looking cuttings and the price is right.

ordered some more this morning. Could not resist.
Nebels rainbow, Hawaiian G. Cruse, Spider, Kaneohe sunrise, Englewood, U of H orange, Rare Hilo Beauty, Samoan red, Ruby Too, Pinwheel rainbow, Pink Pansy, Mililani.

Might go ahead and order another 12. I can use any extras for our plant sale in the spring at the community garden.
Nassau was $39.95 for a cutting at Exotic Plumeria!!!!! Mg had Japanese lantern for 20.95. Got both for Tally HO!

When I potted my 12 up yesterday, I noticed that the Scott Pratt looked like a 4 tip, but when I looked closer, it appears that one tip had had an inflo and there is in fact 3 sets of claws on it, so it really has 6 tips! Not bad at all.

Dean Conklin
Jean Moragne

you can get all 50 of his varieties for $200 and shipping "around $80". I was really tempted.
$5.60 for a cutting? How can you go wrong? I resisted though. 12 at a time Jim won`t have a heart attack. 50 he might faint. Though.....

That would be a whole lot of potting up. lol And finding a place for all 50 while rooting.

I have a problem with the $80 shipping.

It may not come to that. On the 12 cutting deal, it said $16 shipping but when it came time to checkout, the actual shipping came to $14. The $80 is a bit high, but you are getting thick 2, 3, or 4 tip cuttings in that deal.

If you take 4x12 you get 48, and 4x16 is $64 so it's not too far off. I think he uses USPS Flat Rate boxes(mine was anyway).

I was thinking of ordering 4 cuttings, but I'm getting nervous about the amount of time left i have to root these cuttings - I'm in Austin - any thoughts?

200+ 80 /50 = $5.60 per cutting. I`ll have to go and look what shipping was. Mine also came in a flat rate box, I didn`t even know they had one that size.

Emily, you might be fine as the day time temps will be perfect for rooting them soon. I just worry about them being cut off the trees this late in the season.

My 12 was $55 plus $14 shipping, which comes to $5.75 per cutting. Still an incredible price, delivered direct to your doorstep.

As far as late in the season, these are coming from Oahu, so perhaps they grow year round down there? Would be interesting to find out if anyone has any info on that. Like, if they put out new inflos month after month without pausing for fall/winter in the tropics?

From what I remember when I lived on Oahu they do not go dormant, they slow down, and some varieties bloom longer than others. They grow them and use them to make leis year round. I do not remember ever seeing one dormant there.

That sounds about right. I lived there 40 years ago and don't really recall any trees losing their leaves, like deciduous trees do here in the states. It was pretty much green all year long. So I imagine cuttings taken pretty much anytime would be ready to root. Of course once they got here, they would need the heat mats and probably lights to keep them going over the winter for rooting. Or just store them away till next spring.

In place of "states", I should have said "mainland". LOL

You can just copy the link and paste it into a new tab to view the pics. I just finally figured out how to post them so they can be directly viewed. I think the originals were too large to do that. I should redo them so they are right in the post.

Here's all of them in a bunch. You can perhaps get an idea from this pic. The one with the metal tag is from Plumeria Hut, a Cool Aid. The rest from Piece of Paradise.

Haven't figured out how to get more than one pic per post yet, but here are 4 of them. Nebel's Rainbow has 4 tips.
