How to grow Plumerias:
From a cutting:
Position the cutting VERTICALLY and plant it cut-side-down about 4" deep into porous sandy potting soil. Place in direct sun. Water until the planting media is soaked, then let the soil dry out before watering again. Feed it with a general garden fertilizer or a timed-released fertilizer. Ideal temperature range is 60℉ to 90℉.
From a plant:
If you bought plumeria as a growing plant, follow the same light, temperature, water and fertilizer instructions above. Keep in mind that plumerias go dormant in the winter and "come back" in the spring. Translation: They will drop their leaves and look pretty much gone. As long as the stalk is not mushy, it's okay.
When is a good time to replant?
This question arises quite often, so you're not alone in asking. If you purchase your plumeria as a growing plant, it comes in a four inch pot, and typically doesn't need to be replanted right away. You'll know it's time to replant however, once you begin to notice that your plumeria plant has taken root. Here is an example of what that will look like:

Our opinion...why buying the growing plant is a better idea...
Sure, it sounds self serving to tout the more expensive product. But there are some very practical reasons why the growing plant is the best value for your dollar:
- It's already growing. It may seem obvious, but isn't it much easier to take over where our growing efforts have left off, than for you to start from an earlier stage?
- (More or less), instant gratification. Well, let's show you a couple of pictures that explain this better:
We think reasons #1 and #2 stand on their own merit.
