Re: Spring/ Holli's tropicals/ Plumeria

Did they freeze???  Or do they just look like dead sticks??   Plumeria can go 
dormant in cool weather, where they lose their foliage, and  pretty much look 
dead.  They are the easiest plants to overwinter in cool  climates.  They 
literally don't need ANY water or sun at all when  dormant.  People take them out 
of the ground, or pots and shake off the  soil, wrap up and stick in closets, 
under beds, etc.  Then pull them back  out in the spring.   Some folks will 
just take the pots and stick them  in the garage or dark corner (protected from 
freezes) and let them go  dormant....no water, no light....then take them out 
in spring and begin to  slowly water, and slowly acclimate to light.....until 
foliage appears.   Really easy to overwinter.
For future reference, if yours did indeed not make it.....but hopefully  they 
are just dormant.
P.S. Congrats on the flamingo.

I have  some that made it so far.  Pulmerias didn't but that is my  fault, I  
had put 2 in one VERY LARGE planter and wasn't able to get them in  the  home 
time.  I was so disappointed, so I will be looking  for a few again,  and 
make the same mistake  again.
