Hi all,

I got some plumeria cuttings from a swap meet this morning. The cuttings were cut yesterday. Do you think it is late to do rooting now? Should I wait until next year? I am living in Inland Empire (southern California). Please give me some advices.

RE: Please advise on rooting

Where are you in So Cal? I am still rooting mine. You need to let them heal for about a month before planting
then dip in rootone. I use the egg method and hopefully it will work.
Good luck

RE: Please advise on rooting

Congrats on the cuttings. I just potted up 3 yesterday which have been callusing now for 2 weeks and will do another 2 that I had to re-cut in another 2 weeks. It is late for the season BUT...1st google the "baggy" method of rooting plumeria cuttings. I did this when we came from Hawaii one October. (we are in Ventura)

Then Google the "raw egg rooting method". The baggy worked for me in a dark warm closet. The egg method works for me over the winter in our sunroom. hope this helps...roxanne

Hi Bill,
I am living in Redlands, which is part of Inland Empire, very hot area. Thanks for your advice.

I just read the baggy method. I will do this method, will leave them in my garage. Thank you so much.

Thanks Roxanne, your reply gives me an idea how long it will take. So, I won't worry while waiting for rooting.

RE: Please advise on rooting

These plants will teach you patience. They do it on their time not ours. If you still have warm days you have a good chance but they could wait for spring to do anything. Good luck and let us know how they do.

Hi Peg,

Yeah, patience is the name of plumeria growing. It is still warm in my area (around 88 °F at noon). Thanks Peg. I will update.
