Growing Plumeria

actionpatrickNovember 13, 2009

I have a coworker who will be going to Florida on vacation soon and she has promised to pick me up a Plumeria. I have a bit of an obsession for taking care of my plants at an optimal level. I want to make sure it gets the right sun, when to know when to replant it, how often I should fertilize the soil, what kind of fertilizer I should use and what type of soil I should use. Are there any tips or tricks or experience people can give me to help ensure a beautiful, strong and "perfect" plumeria. I live in southern NJ btw.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Well being in NJ, don't put it outside right now! Thats for sure. Anything below 40 F is not to good for a plumeria. Is your friend getting you a rooted plant or a cutting? Either can be stored until spring. Until then there are many many messages on the forum here for you to read as far as care of plumeria go. Best of luck with your new addition.
