Kids and Plumeria....Don't Mix

Posted by dthrooop 9 (My Page) on

Okay, so my girls were riding their bikes on the patio, took the corner a little too sharply and seperated one of my plumeria from its pot and roots! What to do now? I put it back in the pot, but should I strip all the leafs or leave them on? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I tried to link to the photos, but they aren't coming up, so I'm providing the URLs as well:

No roots=no leaves. Strip the leaves and treat it as a cutting. You may want to use some rooting hormone on the end.

Thanks, Mike. I've removed the leaves (leaving only the claws), dipped the end in rooting hormone, and put back in the pot. And, moved the pot out of way! Now, I'll just sit back and wait - with my fingers crossed...

RE: Kids and Plumeria....Don't Mix

I agree, kids and plumeria don't mix. My grandson recently tried to "help" me. He cut off
The tops off 3 of my plants. Luckily they weren't any of my named varieties. I stuck them in the dirt and hope they root. One of the stumps is already sprouting a couple of branches.
