Storing Plumeria's

This winter the Plumerias will be stored bare rooted. By this I mean we are up rooting them shaking off any soil and removing all the leaves. The stems are being dipped in neem. We bought some large tubs and drilled holes in the bottom and added some peralite. Placed the rooted cains in and covered with more peralite and added river rocks on top to weight them down. This will allow the cains to still receive moisture during the winter and hopefully develop their roots.
