Overwintering advice needed

10 years ago

I grew my first plumeria this year from seed. They're about 2ft now and the new growth is the densest I've seen so far.

It will be in the 40's tonight and tomorrow night, and I'm wondering what to do with them. Should I store them bareroot or should I leave them potted in a sunny location?

I'm leaning towards leaving them potted because I'd like to cut as much time off as possible before their first bloom. We have a large east facing glass door that receives bright sun during the winter for most of the day, except for December when the tree goes up (but we do have grow lights for that period). It's not optimum lighting, but it works great for overwintering other plants.
