Q.Plumeria Stick

Zone Scarborough, ON | BackMonday added on September 14, 2016 | Answered

I purchased a plumeria cutting at a garden show about 6 months ago. When I brought it out in the spring, it sprouted a few green leaves and then nothing since. The stick is still hard and there is no evidence of root rot, but there hasn’t been growth in months. Is it dead and am I wasting my time?

Is your plumeria receiving full sun? Plumeria enjoy as much sun as possible and need 6 hours of sun at least, preferably 10-12 hours to grow vigorously. Indoors, this can be supplemented with grow lights.

If it is receiving plenty of sun, and you are following the other guidelines for growing plumeria found in the articles below, I am not sure what the problem is. It sounds like yours is still capable of growing, so perhaps it just needs some time.
