Are Plumeria Easy To Care For?
Plumerias have very few insect or disease problems. Just feed and water and protect from freezing temperatures and they do great. The fragrances of the Plumeria flower is legendary, ranging from coconut to jasmine and including citrus, rose, honeysuckle, raspberry, spice, apricot and peach. Flower color varies from pure white to deep red with yellows, golds, oranges, roses, pinks and all combinations in between. Unique among trees, in winter, Plumeria can be removed from the soil and stored in a basement, garage, greenhouse or other enclosure. After the last frost, they can be planted again and brought into bloom. When the Plumeria plant goes dormant in winter they loose their leaves and requires no care. They grow and bloom well in the ground or in containers. In containers they are wonderful for creating tropical floral highlights in gardens, or on patios or decks, and along walkways. Keep in mind that Plumeria need protection when temperatures drop below 35°F.
What King Of Plant Will I Get?
Cuttings are either rooted or un-rooted depending on the option you choose and what we have available in stock. The size will vary based on the description of the product but no particular size is guaranteed. Rooted plants are usually graphed to a hardy root stock. Plants are shipped bare root or with soilless media. Leaves are cut off before shipping to minimize stress. All Plumeria Treasure plants are approved by the USDA. Most of our plants are grafted. This means a cutting has been grafted to a vigorous root stock.
How will my Plumeria be shipped to me?
Plumeria are shipped bare root and leaves removed. This will help reduce stress during shipping. They are normally shipped via USPS but another carrier may be used if necessary.
What is the difference between Rooted and Un Rooted Cuttings?
A cutting is a Plumeria that has been cut from the parent plant. It can be planted in a pot and will begin to grow roots and leaves in as little as 1-2 months. It will usually take 1 year to produce flowers.
A rooted Plumeria is a plant that has been in soil and has developed a root system. The size of the root ball will be determined by the length of time in soil and its age. A rooted plant will begin to grow in just a couple of weeks after it is put back into the soil. Rooted cuttings from Plumeria Treasure are usually graphted.
Is it hard to grow Plumeria?
The great thing about Plumerias is how easy it is to grow them! A Plumeria needs little attention. Just be sure to plant it in a fast draining soil mix (50% soil, 50% sand). Also, Plumeria need lots of sunshine and the hotter it is, the better. Just water when the soil becomes dry and give a high phosphorous fertilizer twice a month. Be sure not to keep the soil wet all the time. Plumeria do not like to have soggy soil. Just water liberally and then let the soil become a little dry before watering again
Where do your plants come from?
Plumeria Treasure obtains cuttings from all over the world. Many of our cuttings and trees come from Hawaii and Thailand, yet others come from Australia and beyond.
What is the difference between common and Named Plumeria
Common Plumeria are plants that are not of a specific cultivar. They are just as beautiful and fragrant as a named Plumeria. Named Plumeria have been cultivated to have a specific color and fragrance combination. They are usually unique in color pattern and often have a stronger scent or wonderful color mixes. Some can be quite rare and cost a considerable amount compared to a common Plumeria
