Seeds 101
...behold the power of seeds !


 
Propagating Plumeria from seed is fun and exciting.  Plumeria seeds are not true to the parent plant. Which means the seedlings can be very different from the parent plumeria.  Seeds are the reason we have over 300 named varieties.

NOTE: Seeds from reds and pinks can give you the greatest varaition.



Acquire some seeds.

Fill small plastic trays or pots with your favorite potting soil.
Next, water and saturate the soil.

Hold the seed for a photo...

Insert the seed into the soil, leaving the wing sticking up.
Next, pinch the soil against the seed to insure good contact.

Finally, place them in a sunny location and let 'em grow.
Keep the soil moist and they should germinate within 21 days.
