Plumeria

Zone Central Coast of California - Santa Maria | healthminister added on August 21, 2015 | Answered

I have a small plumeria given to me by a friend. I have it planted in a nice pot on the patio where it is in the sun all day. I water it a couple times a week. The leaves have begun dropping off. Am I giving too much water or not enough? Why am I losing leaves?

Make sure the pot and soil is draining properly. Wet, soggy soil will cause root rot.
Plumeria prefer to have a good watering and then dry slightly.

If the temperatures are above 85 degrees you will need to likely water more often.
