Plumeria is a versatile plant that adds both color and fragrance to any growers’ offering and has become quite desirable amongst consumers in both Europe and the United States, explains Bill Steen General Manager at Fleurizon. According to him, it is a great plant to be added to a grower's tropical or foliage program.

According to Steen, Plumeria is not difficult to grow, but does require some attention to create the best product at retail. "Plumeria have been known to have a mind of their own when it comes to flowering, however not all plumeria producers are created equal. Proper production methods from quality sources are essential."
"Growers will need to keep the product above 78F-23C which is essential for growing, rooting and flowering. During the rooting phase, high humidity levels of 90-95 percent are needed for proper rooting. Roots will begin to form after 6-8 weeks. Finishing should be done in 1 – 3-gallon pots in a well-draining soil."
