This Caribbean & Hawaiian Flower called Plumeria Frangipani was Prognated by my wife in August last year August/2019 and with lots of care & love bloomed here in on Mothers day in May 2020 from a Cutting that we had shipped from Honolulu. These pictures were taken once a month. It will be ready to plant soon, this summer, as a Bush, which will grow to be a Tree. That's going to take a few year more to happen. This process takes patience & some Hormones but the prize is well worth it

We kept the Cutting in a glass of water and changed that once per week. Within a month it started to Bud & grow tiny hair-like roots that we could see in the H2O. When they got long enough, my wife potted it and took it into the house in mid-September. We used a small 19 watt (White Light) Grow Light overtop approx. 2-3 ft above the Cutting.  

By the end of September 2019 this is what the Fragment Plumeria Cutting looked like.  We decided to add a little buddy that we also started in water. Only this was started indoors under the Grow Light
