Last July I was given a stem cutting from a Yellow Plumeria. I planted it in a mix of top soil and fine sand and keep it under grow lights. The leaves are now starting to form. According to my research the flowers will follow next year (there are many societies in the U.S. dedicated to this particular plant).

I'm interested to know if any of you are growing the Plumerias and are willing to share your experience.

A couple of years ago, two of my neighbours brought me Plumeria. I had three plants and dutifully followed all directions. They leafed out eventually and looked like they were doing fine; however, over time, they all kind of wilted. The stalk sort of wrinkled up and then drooped over. Sigh......

The common type with gray spotted leaves appears to grow anywhere. I have them in the shade or sun. They bloom first thing in the spring and are very delightful. They tend to spread into bigger clumps and self seed.

I also have a wild variety in the garden. I think the birds donated it to me. The flowers are nice but the foliage isn't as nice.
