NEW BUD DEVELOPMENT & GROWTH

WEEK 1
10/12/2000

    I took the 12 foot Plumeria shown in these pictures and performed some drastic cuts for 2 reasons. One, it was too big for my greenhouse. And two, there was too much space between branches in the lower area.  I decided to cut it back and document the re-growth on the parent plant.
 

 

THE CUTTINGS

    I made 4 huge cuttings and was going to cut them into 20 small 18" cuttings, but I decided to root the four huge cuttings instead.  These cuttings are 4 feet tall and are being rooted in 7 gallon pots. What's left of the "common white" Plumeria will be the subject these photos and study.
