  1. Hi Sunita,
    Plumeria can be water rooted, but it requires constantly warm water and if you root it you will most probably damage young roots when planting. You’ll find all my recommendations for starting cuttings here: https://tropicsathome.com/start-plumeria-indoors-containers/
    As for hormone, here in Sweden we have only one type available for order. In your country you probably have something completely different. Any well known brand should work. Good luck! Aloha! 🙂

  2. Thrips are indeed hard to spot as they are tiny. I posted a short video for you here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LnEvpWFZIE. I deployed insects called Orius hunting thrips. The fly-like one in the video is the good guy, the tiny larvae-like one is thrips. It got away on the video, but not for long 🙂

  3. Dear David, I apologise for the late answer. Your comment was wrongly labelled as spam and I just noticed it. As for your Plumeria, unfortunately it looks like damage either by spider mites (do you see any tiny webs on the margins above or under the leaves?) or by thrips.

  4. So it has dropped all the leaves and it were white spots on them. Is that correct? You didn’t happen to take any photos of the spots? How long did you have that tree? What light does it get now? How often do you water it?

  5. Thank YOU so much for letting me use it! Love this painting! Mahalo a aloha! 🙂

  6. Thank you! Not sure what would you like to purchase?

  7. Thank you! Loved your site!

  8. Thank you, Donna! Looking forward my next post me too 🙂 It’s going to be about growing palms 🙂
