Plumeria Broke

Posted by tocyncity CA (My Page) on

I have a Plumeria that was getting tall and heavy and it was leaning down almost touching the ground. I tried staking it as I did last year but this year it had more leaves and blooms and broke in two separate areas. I went ahead a replanted both pieces right away but now I am hearing I was supposed to wait. This happened last Wednesday and it was a very hot day so all the leaves and blooms wilted quickly. It has been less than a week and the leaves are still wilted. Should I pull them back out or just leave them alone?

I think they will be o.k. as long as you are not getting a lot of rain. If it is raining a lot there I would pull them up & let them dry a few weeks, remove all leaves 1rst, then use some rooting compound on the ends and put them in 4 inches of potting soil for cactus, then add pea gravel or something like it to keep them from moving around. Water then let the soil dry and water very little so they dont rot. Leave them in pots until next year.
Good luck & if you have any cuttings you dont want email me. lol
