 o
Cut or Plant it

I received a bunch of cuttings today...and love them. Most of the cuttings are callused very well...the core is dry and firm when pushed. I have a few that are softer to the touch and when you push on the ends your finger will go in about a 1/4 inch or so.

My question is should I leave them alone and plant them or recut and callus them?

I'll attached a photograph shortly.

Another photograph attach shows damage caused by USPS, thanks, what's the best way to fix it. The branch did not fully detach but is only held on by say 20 to 30 percent.

Any advised would be great.

Derrick doesn't pack very well and a couple of mine broke too. I removed the broken tips. I'd just plant them.

I have seen partial breaks even more substantial than this heal up and leave only a scar...if you still have most of it intact, try taping it up like a graft and giving it some time...keep an eye on it though for rot in case something begins to get funky in there. Or if you have a latex sealant like DAP or the like, push it back to it's original position and seal it up.

here is a thread with a similar situation that may help you decide what to do with it: http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/plumeria/msg041107164643.html?7

Did you get these from a piece of paradise? Derrick right? He has sent me quite a few cuttings. Very nice ones.

Yes...these came from Derrick...looks like yours did as well. I purchased a few cuttings and will hopefully have them rooted by winter. My first batch I managed to kill a few. These things have really helped me with my OCD...over the years.

I've read some of your other posts...don't let what other say get to you.
