Cutting of Plumeria 'Celadine'

Cutting of Plumeria 'Celadine' (Plumeria rubra)

The picture shows one cutting of Plumeria 'Celadine' which was planted as an unrooted cutting on March 19, 2011.

Exactly 6 weeks to the day, April 30, 2011 the cutting was fully rooted, developed an inflorescence and was in the process of opening it's first flower.

When rooting plumeria cuttings in earlier times and an inflo developed, the inflo was usually removed to have the cutting's energy go into the formation of roots.

I've always read to cut off the inflorescence. However, when planting cuttings of Celadine I leave the flower spike attached...this variety is very tough...almost as easy and tough as Samoan Fluff.
