dormancy and covering prumeria with christmas lights
I'm thinking about wrapping christmas lights around all the branches of my 3 foot plumeria tree, and I was wondering if the heat from the lights will prevent the plumeria from going into dormancy. I am in Southern California, where plumerias drop most of their leaves and go dormant during winter. The lights are the small white kind, and I'd coil it so the lights are wrapping around each branch and them stem. The tree is still young, so I do want it to go dormant, so it can store up energy for next year. I'd appreciate expert feedback, thanks.
