Rooted and Dismembered Plumeria
I have been lurking here for about a year, trying to decide whether I can be trusted with at least one plumeria. I finally bought a rooted cutting (no balls for rooting it myself). The plant was very well packed but there really is no limit to the thoughtfulness of the USPS and it managed to pre-prune it for me. I am ever so grateful.
I hope you can help me with these 2 questions because I'm really at a loss, the dismemberment was such a surprise.
1. I potted the rooted portion in gritty mix. Should I now water it and leave it alone or just leave it alone?
2. the severed portion looks like it is all of last season's growth. It will fit nicely in my T5HO set up but if it develops any kind of disease, I do not want it infecting the dorstenias and the P. brevicaule that I have in there already. Should I even bother rooting it? If so, would the same winter rooting principles apply (i.e. heat mat, bright light)? Should I wash it with soap, sautee in garlic etc?
p.s. the plant in question is labeled Hot Embers
