Growing Plumeria from Cuttings

Plumeria, the tree that the Hawaiian lei flower comes from, can be grown from a 'cutting'.

All you have to do is gently break off about 8" from a branch tip and place it in a well drained pot. Water the Plumeria a tiny bit every 2 days and make sure it has partial to full sun. They can't take the cold!

The image is of a pink Plumeria I started from a cutting about 2 months ago and it pushing through its first leaf. I'm excited!

I'll post more photos as it grows so you can see the progress.
