Plumeria Plants

I have a dormant Plumeria tree which I have brought inside ( I live in New Jersey). Does it need a grow light?

I read that it only needs monthly or no watering for the winter. All the leaves have now dropped. Is it beneficial to put a grow light over it even though it’s in dormancy?

No leaves, no need for grow light. The light is to facilitate photosynthesis which only happens in the green leaves. But keep an eye on it in early spring when it may start to leaf out.
