your plumeria or frangipani from seeds, follow the tested and proven steps
1. Moisten the
the germination process, the seeds need to be plumped up with moisture.
easiest way is to place the seeds between moistened tissue papers. Leave them
for 24 hours in a warm environment. You will notice that the thicker part of
the seeds will swell. The seeds will now be ready for sowing.
2. Prepare Potting
you can either prepare your own potting mix or buy it ready-made from a
nursery. For this project, I used Baba brand 'Seedling Package'. It came with
0.88 lb. (400 gram) peat moss and ten numbers of cultivation pots that are 2
inches (5 cm) deep.
don't use this cultivation pot often, you can save money by reusing or
recycling 0.12 gallon (500 ml) empty mineral bottles. Cut off two thirds of the
bottle and use the bottom one third. Make holes at the base and, after
cleaning, your cultivation pot is ready for use.
3. Transplant the
the peat moss (or potting mix) and make a small hole in the mix.
push the plumeria seed about 0.2 inches (5mm) into the mix. Make sure the swollen
end is at the bottom and the seed wing is at the top. Allow part of this wing
to stick out of the soil.
press the soil against the side of the plumeria seed.
4. Create a Mini
these pots in an empty plastic container and cover it to create a mini
greenhouse effect. Place it in a warm, lighted area, but not under full
daily to make sure the soil is not dry. If the top soil looks dry, mist it with

them to germinate.
the time, the leaf will emerge with the remains of the husk still attached. It
will drop off as the leaves grow bigger.
If any of
the seedlings show signs of mold during the germination process, treat it
immediately with a mild fungicide.
6. Remove the Husk

will usually fall off by itself, but occasionally this may not happen soon
enough. If these husks are not removed from the cotyledons (i.e. the embryonic
first leaves of the seedling), the seedlings might rot and die.
have to assist by spraying it with a fine mist and gently removing these husks.
7. Transplant the

can start to transplant it to a bigger pot.
remove the seedling from the cultivation pot and, together with the peat moss
(or your potting soil), transplant it to the new and bigger pot.
case, the plumeria plant will finally be planted in the ground. So, I reused an
empty 2.5 gallon (9.5 liter) empty mineral bottle as the pot for transplanting.
It is also lighter and easier to move around.
I prepare my own potting soil
using one part peat moss, two parts finely crushed clay bricks, and three parts
garden topsoil. You can do similar 'recipe' or buy ready-made potting soil.
Once you have it transplanted,
water it every alternate day, but make sure the soil is not waterlogged.
You can now introduce fertilizer
that is high in phosphorus content to help your young plumeria grow strong and
healthy. I use the organic fertilizer that is a mixture of cedars, cypress,
pines, and plantains. I use it once a week.
8. Move the Plants
to Full Direct Sunlight
Plumeria or Frangipani loves
direct sunlight, but this must be done gradually. A week is about just right
for this 'moving transition period' from shaded to direct and stronger sunlight.
You start by putting them in a
shady and protected area. Leave them for a few hours. Increase the time for the
next few days until it is a full day exposure but still under the shade. During
this period, keep nudging the plants to be closer to the full sunlight. After a
week of doing this, the plants will be ready to be exposed to full sunlight on
a daily basis.
That's it, folks. Just sit back
and enjoy your hard work. And make sure you water and fertilize as directed.
All seeds will come in a resalable
plastic zip lock bag and placed in a bubble envelope so the seeds are not
damaged by shipping machines. All seed packets contain no fillers or other
weeds or seeds mixed in. Most have been harvested by hand & all test at a
high germination rate.
that all seed orders will contain the quantity ordered. Unlike many sellers who
sell seeds by weight, all seed our counts are almost always correct, as the
seeds are packaged and counted by hand. Seed packages are all double checked to
insure accuracy. We do our best and will often add extra seeds.
We are a seller that caters to
experienced gardeners. (germination and plant care information is readily
available online. Most of our listings include germination instructions, so we
do not ship growing instructions.
All My Seeds Are Sold Fresh So You Can Plant them Anytime within 2

***Note: It is normal for tropical seed germination to be sporadic from as
little as 30 days to 6 months or more- so patience is required. Buyers should
do their own research for plant uses if needed.
BE PREPARED - Some Seed can be somewhat difficult to germinate - much patience and
time may be required - please don't be wondering why the seeds have not
germinated after short periods of time. This is normal. Several months will be
needed for some seed.
Some seeds require some experience in growing. We provide germination
guidance and recommend that you do some research before ordering if you feel
unsure. Growing plants from seed is supposed to be fun. Sometimes it is
successful and sometimes not- this is the way it is with gardening. Because we
are not there to plant them, we cannot be responsible for germination failure
due to improper planting or climate conditions. We will always send you viable
Seed is a
live product which depends on many important grower skills such as proper
planting time, seed depth, type of soil, watering, light intensity, proper use
of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, soil conditions, and
reasonable weather during the growing period. These factors are totally out of
the sellers control, and germination and growing results are the buyer's
responsibility and risk.
