FRANGIPANI/PLUMERIA
« on: August 11, 2018, 11:48:56 AM »
I am looking to obtain some frangipani/plumeria cuttings/plants to try to start growing. If anyone has or knows where I can get some to try growing, I would appreciate any information you may have in obtaining them. Maybe someone may have some cuttings that they would be willing to share. I would appreciate any help.

Beeman, I have some.  My largest plumeria blew over and I have a couple of broken limbs.  Trying to root them now.  What's up with the Fall get-together?  It's been deleted?  Somebody fill me in!

Thanks for the reply catgrass. Wish you well with the rooting of the broken limbs. If you would decide to share one, I would be interested. Just let me know. I don't know anything on the get together, I have not been on the website for a while. My mom passed away in June and I have been busy taking care of her final business. Still dealing with the property etc. I need to get information on the get together myself.

So sorry, Beeman.  That sure takes a lot out of you, I know.  I usually have pretty good success rooting Pumeria-theyre really pretty tough.  IF we have a get together, I will bring one for you.

Beeman, The cutting I started was doing great, until we had several days of rain, and it drowned.  I have more cuttings that have caloused over, but it's kind of late to try to root them.  I usually just wait until spring, because they go totally dormant in winter.  I can still send you a couple cuttings if you like, or if you want to wait until spring I can do that too.  I will be cutting several branches of my too largest plumerias so they will fit right in the GH.  I usually go to the Lafayette garden show in April, if you want to wait.

Catgrass
I apologize for not getting back to you before now. I have been extremely busy. My truck fuel pump has been out and I don't have a reliable vehicle right now.
I missed the get together due to that also. I appreciate your offer for the cuttings. I would be willing to wait till the next spring. I do not know about the Lafayette garden show in April. I would appreciate it if you could keep me up to date on the show. I would be glad to meet you there in April if possible. Looking forward to seeing you then.    BEEMAN

Beeman, we didn't have a get together this year-I'm just wondering about the prizes that were to be sent in by Hook N Crooke, etc.  Anyway, yeah, by April the plumerias should be rooted and growing.  I'll let you know when the garden show is

Maybe Boudreaux will have some kind of drawing on the forum for the prizes?  He said he had received 5 seeders as well.

Thanks catgrass. Would like to attend the garden show if at all possible. Please keep me advised. Have not been on website as I have been extremely busy.
