Thanks for the help Welaka. The cuttings I acquired are from a very large plant. A tree so to say. The owner virtually cut all the tree in small branches for re potting. I guess he was right then. Will follow the advice.

I found some very, very tiny red spiders on Plumeria and sprayed it with insecticide but it didn't help

I bought acaricide or something like it and hope it helps

Anybody had this problem ?

If I have anything with spider mite on I stick it on a hot sunny wall. The more visible red spider things (I don't think they are true spiders) are the predators for spider mite and soon clear it.

I found the best & fastest way of dealing with spider mites is to use a horticultural oil & true soap (not detergent) mix in water. I had tried all sorts of other home-made mixes (I avoid commercial insecticides due to their toxicity). But this horticultural oil & soap mix is the BEST by far. It works well against mealybugs too & I wish I'd known about it a few years ago when I lost lots of indoor plants due to mealybugs.

Horticultural oil is a much finer grade than regular mineral oil or vegetable oil. It's light & easily breaks up into smaller droplets. Mixed with an organic type soap (not detergent), it clings to the pests &serves to both dry them out & suffocate them. Treatment needs to be repeated a time or two afterwards to get the newly emerged pests that may hatch from eggs that weren't killed. How much time between the first & second treatments depend on what insects or mites you're treating for since the hatching out period will vary from different species.

Neem oil is also used. I used pyretherins on outside plants on my farm with very good results for spider mites and even for troublesome pests such as grasshoppers and blister beetles. However, it damaged many of my indoor plants, perhaps because the cuticle wasn't as well developed so I wouldn't recommend it indoors. Nicotine sulfate can be very useful though it is very poisonous to most things (including humans) and is restricted in some areas. It is also perhaps risky to use on some plant species in the Solanaceae as it can possibly spread (at least, many people think so) the tobacco mosaic virus to things like tomatoes, etc.

Hello,
Plumeria is a small genus of 7-8 species native to tropical and subtropical Americas. Plumeria is related to the Oleander, Nerium oleander, and both possess poisonous, milky sap, rather similar to that of Euphorbia. Each of the separate species of Plumeria bears differently shaped leaves and their form and growth habits are also distinct.
Plumeria flowers are most fragrant at night in order to lure sphinx moths to pollinate them. The flowers have no nectar, and simply dupe their pollinators. The moths inadvertently pollinate them by transferring pollen from flower to flower in their fruitless search for nectar.
Plumeria species are easily propagated by taking a cutting of leafless stem tips in spring and allowing them to dry at the base before inserting them into soil. They are also propagated via tissue culture both from cuttings of freshly elongated stems and via aseptically germinated seed.

If you to want to get more information about the respective or any other topic you can visit bonsaioutlet.com site. I have referred the sites to too many friends and they are highly satisfied with the service level of that company.
Thanks...!

Is this some way to propagate plumeria without seeds?
From cutting or something like that?

Hi Jajay,

Plumerias are very popular worldwide. There are nurseries in Germany, Great Britain, and Sicily that do mail orders.

Please let me know if you need more information.

Bob
