#plumeria #rubra #saturdaysurprise Got this as a cutting from existing Plumeria Tree within my complex. Much Darker Pink with Yellowish Centre Bloom. Put in a Bowl of water for a day before putting in Potted Soil. Fingers crossed as it is kind of too windy in the last couple of days

@gjones the Cutting that I got was from a mature branch. Few things I noticed. There is a big central white tube shaped thick vein which is running at middle of plant(milky sap), 2nd is that in water or soil, it is kind of doing ok now. There is another cutting i took for night blooming Jasmine & all leaves are drooping inspite of being in water or soil. So comparatively this one is much better 😊

Frangipani cuttings do best if they’re left for a few days (weeks even) to harden off before planting.

works best with new growth & rooting hormone

@brightcolours Katie did leave it for a couple of days in water however there were lots of white flies which were attacking new leaves on the branches. Eventually decided to Pot it post then 😊

“When you take cuttings you should only cut seasoned wood as green wood is too soft, the wood will shrink back and it will not develop roots as easily.”

“A cutting needs to be at least 30 cm or longer preferably, cut the leaves off(leaving a small piece of the leaf stem to prevent open wounds), and dip the cut in rooting hormone/powder(wet cut end if necessary) then put it somewhere out of direct sun to harden, depending on the weather the cut will start to swell after a few weeks or longer, this is a sign that it is ready to start growing roots.” www.thefrangipaniman.com/gpage2.html

@moore.794 Terry, Normally Rooting hormone is needed when the tips of stems are removed. A typical synthetic Rooting hormone is similar to natural rooting hormone which is called Auxins. Auxin is indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) which is the most abundant auxin found in plants. Auxin is present in all parts of a plant, although in very different concentrations. Translocation of Auxin is driven throughout the plant body, primarily from peaks of shoots to peaks of roots.

When the plant is wounded, auxin induces the cell differentiation and regeneration of the vascular tissues. Hence in a cutting, as more natural auxin is transported down the stem to the roots, the overall development of the roots is stimulated. If the source of auxin is removed, such as by trimming the tips of stems, the roots are less stimulated accordingly, and growth of stem is supported instead High concentrations of auxin inhibit root elongation and enhance adventitious root formation.
