Plumeria ‘frangipani’ fact sheet
from David's Exotic Plants
Plumeria should not be watered at all in the winter period. Start watering around March, and as soon as growth is seen to start again, feed with Superthrive once a week. This first Springtime watering should only be about every two weeks. Once the plant has started to grow again, watering should be carried out whenever the soil is seen to be bone dry.
Over-wintering in the UK
Place the plumeria in a garage or in the house in the winter time. They perform better on a window sill with plenty of light. Keep the plant dry throughout the winter months. Simply ensure the tree has plenty of light and ventilation. Ensure the greenhouse/conservatory/house/garage isn’t below 12°C.
Plumeria require as much sunlight and ventilation as possible. Feed once a week with a Superthrive feed to help encourage flowers.
Red spider mite and scale insect are the main culprits and the best solution is to wash your plant with soapy water every few days to cut down the insect numbers, or simply give it a good hose down.
Plumeria plants require loam-based compost with either grit or bark chippings to aid drainage. The optimum pH is 6.5. They should be re-potted once a year if/when the plant becomes pot-bound.
