Germination of

Plumeria rubra

Ruby Plumeria / Nosegay Frangipani: Ruby red plumeria, Red frangipani

Plumeria rubra

Plumeria rubra, commonly known as the Frangipani, can be grown from seeds that are collected from the matured pods. When the pods have ripened and are starting to split open, the seeds can be harvested. The seeds should be sown in a well-draining soil mixture and kept consistently moist. They should be covered with a light layer of soil and kept in a warm, bright area, ideally with temperatures around 75-80�F. Germination can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Once the seedlings have developed two true leaves, they can be transplanted into individual pots and placed in a location that receives full sunlight.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
