Went to visit a friend in Florida, looking for orchids, and parrots. I mentioned that a mutual friend in Tx. was "into" Plumeria. She said, I have some, I'll give you some cuttings, well when I got ready to leave she gave me these 3 sticks, 2 looked like sling shots and one was just a stick. When I got home,
(Feb 04) I planted them as told in Plumeria 101. Put them on my closed in porch in the sun until the weather got warm enough to put them outside. Now in May they are making leaves, the one with the biggest leaves has buds. I am excited about them.
I have now found out about semi/hydro for my orchids. In the past I have killed a lot of orchids. Now the ones I didn't kill from that trip to FL are actually flourishing and making new roots and putting out new shoots. I am still waiting for my first orchid to rebloom. But I actually think it will happen.
