Ordered the 12 pack, pick any 12, from Derrick at A Piece of Paradise. These look pretty good for only $55. All are 2 or 3 tips.

Thanks for the tip! I ordered:

Julie Moragne
Japanese Lantern

Nebel's Rainbow
Pinwheel Rainbow
Sally Moragne
Kauka Wilder
Samoan Red
University of Hawaii Orange
Engelwood

Talked to Derrick, too. He was very nice and helpful. I'll be waiting excitedly!

I also ordered on the 19th and they were due to arrive yesterday according to the USPS website, but they came today. Not a biggie. They are some nice looking cuttings and the price is right.

Thanks, George

ordered some more this morning. Could not resist.
Nebels rainbow, Hawaiian G. Cruse, Spider, Kaneohe sunrise, Englewood, U of H orange, Rare Hilo Beauty, Samoan red, Ruby Too, Pinwheel rainbow, Pink Pansy, Mililani.

Might go ahead and order another 12. I can use any extras for our plant sale in the spring at the community garden.
Nassau was $39.95 for a cutting at Exotic Plumeria!!!!! Mg had Japanese lantern for 20.95. Got both for <6 each w/shipping.
Tally HO!

RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

When I potted my 12 up yesterday, I noticed that the Scott Pratt looked like a 4 tip, but when I looked closer, it appears that one tip had had an inflo and there is in fact 3 sets of claws on it, so it really has 6 tips! Not bad at all.


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

BTW, here is the 12 I got:
Scott Pratt
Nebel's Rainbow
Hawaiian Sunset
Pauahi Ali'i
Peachy King
Dean Conklin
Jean Moragne
Guillot Sunset
Hilo Beauty
Kaneohe Sunrise
Plastic Pink
UH Orange

At that price, I'm very tempted to get another 12.


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

you can get all 50 of his varieties for $200 and shipping "around $80". I was really tempted.
$5.60 for a cutting? How can you go wrong? I resisted though. 12 at a time Jim won`t have a heart attack. 50 he might faint. Though.....
Tally Ho!


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

That would be a whole lot of potting up. lol And finding a place for all 50 while rooting.


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

I have a problem with the $80 shipping.


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

It may not come to that. On the 12 cutting deal, it said $16 shipping but when it came time to checkout, the actual shipping came to $14. The $80 is a bit high, but you are getting thick 2, 3, or 4 tip cuttings in that deal.

If you take 4x12 you get 48, and 4x16 is $64 so it's not too far off. I think he uses USPS Flat Rate boxes(mine was anyway).


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

I was thinking of ordering 4 cuttings, but I'm getting nervous about the amount of time left i have to root these cuttings - I'm in Austin - any thoughts?


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

200+ 80 /50 = $5.60 per cutting. I`ll have to go and look what shipping was. Mine also came in a flat rate box, I didn`t even know they had one that size.
Tally HO!


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

Emily, you might be fine as the day time temps will be perfect for rooting them soon. I just worry about them being cut off the trees this late in the season.


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

My 12 was $55 plus $14 shipping, which comes to $5.75 per cutting. Still an incredible price, delivered direct to your doorstep.

As far as late in the season, these are coming from Oahu, so perhaps they grow year round down there? Would be interesting to find out if anyone has any info on that. Like, if they put out new inflos month after month without pausing for fall/winter in the tropics?


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

From what I remember when I lived on Oahu they do not go dormant, they slow down, and some varieties bloom longer than others. They grow them and use them to make leis year round. I do not remember ever seeing one dormant there.
Tally HO!


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

That sounds about right. I lived there 40 years ago and don't really recall any trees losing their leaves, like deciduous trees do here in the states. It was pretty much green all year long. So I imagine cuttings taken pretty much anytime would be ready to root. Of course once they got here, they would need the heat mats and probably lights to keep them going over the winter for rooting. Or just store them away till next spring.


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

In place of "states", I should have said "mainland". LOL


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

I'm so tempted to order, I need them like a hole in the head!
Can someone post pics of the actual cuttings--thx!!


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

Here are the 12 I recieved. And, I'm about to order 12 more. These all look good, 2, 3, and 4 tips on all of them.

Do I need to log on to flicker to see the pics? ;)


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

No, just go way down on page. I did the same thing.


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

You can just copy the link and paste it into a new tab to view the pics. I just finally figured out how to post them so they can be directly viewed. I think the originals were too large to do that. I should redo them so they are right in the post.


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

Here's all of them in a bunch. You can perhaps get an idea from this pic. The one with the metal tag is from Plumeria Hut, a Cool Aid. The rest from Piece of Paradise.


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

Haven't figured out how to get more than one pic per post yet, but here are 4 of them. Nebel's Rainbow has 4 tips.


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

4 more. Hawaiian Sunset, Plastic Pink, UH Orange, and Guillot Sunset.


 o
RE: Good deal on some nice cuttings

Last 4. Dean Conklin, Kaneohe Sunrise, Jean Moragne, and Rare Hilo Beauty.
