Choose the varieties from the dropdown menu Sowing To begin the germination process, place the seeds in a warm, moist environment for about 24 hours before sowing. Do this by placing the seeds between moistened paper towels in a bowl. The paper towel or tissues should be damp not drippng wet. The thicker end of the seed should be noticeably swollen after the 24 hours. Choose a pot at least 3 – 4 inches deep. Fill with moistened potting compost, make a small hole & gently push seed ¼ " vertically into the soil. The seed’s wing should be sticking straight upright & some of its wing will be allowed to protrude above the soil. (See pictures) Cover the container with cling film so creating a mini greenhouse & place in a warm & bright light place but not in full sun. DO NOT LET SOIL DRY OUT but do not over water The seeds will take 7 to 30 days to germinate. Once the seedlings have developed their second set of true leaves they can be transplanted to a bigger pot. Once about 6 inches tall they are strong enough to plant outside if that is your intention or move to a even bigger pot about 10". Water the area around the Plumeria after planting it in the ground, or if you choose to use a container, use one that has adequate drainage holes in the bottom to avoid over watering of the plant. Plumerias are an easy plant to grow with the proper care & attention, & the most beautiful blooms they can
