Re: plumerias

The bottom cuts are callused. I dipped them in rooting hormone/fungicide as
soon as I got them home. I gut the tops off after I read your earlier email
and dipped them in the stuff too. I have your plumeria in here in the
computer room in a corner so it gets no direct sunlight, just whatever high
light comes in through the windows. I haven't been watering it and it's lost
all of its leaves. I was thinking of sticking the cuttings in with it, but I
thought they might root faster if I potted them and put them right in this
south window. I keep up with this spot because a bunch of my orchids are
there too. I think I'll try that since I REALLY want these to root. These
are pastel colors and so pretty.

I don't know. If you do, you'll have to keep tabs on the moisture of the
potting mix just to be sure it doesn't dry out, but the plant may like it
better in the light. Main thing is to get rid of the rot and let the cuts
callous, I think.

Jim, Should I stick them in a very sunny window or no? A

Ooooh... think I'd cut back the mushy parts to firm and treat with
fungicide. Also, I'd plant them now in damp mix but not water them.
They'll probably be rooted well by spring and ready to go out.
