Q.Why Do The Leaves Of My Plumeria Get Brown Tips?

Zone Munich, Germany | Anonymous added on February 10, 2024 | Answered

Dear Gardening-Knowhow-Team, thank you for this incredible website, I really appreciate your great work. I grow my first plumeria indoor and I really found answers to every question! I really hope you can help me with my question. I bought a plumeria cutting in Hawaii 2 years ago and then grew it in New York. Last summer I had to move to Germany an imported my plumeria. It started flowering shortly after that and everything was fine. I reduced the watering during the last months and put it in a darker place but it did not enter dormancy. Last week I noticed that two leaves have a brown tip that starts to spread to the rest of the leaf (as you can see in the pictures). Is there anything I can do? Is it maybe not enough water? As you may have noticed, this plumeria is extremely important to me and I would greatly appreciate it if you can help me out. Thank you very much in advance and best regards.

Usually brown tips indicate improper watering or low humidity. Since you reduced water and light without dormancy, that may be the problem. It's too late now for dormancy, so I suggest bringing it to more light and increasing watering. Let the soil dry out between waterings.
