1 Clean and sterilize a knife or pruning shears with rubbing alcohol.
2 Choose a branch of seasoned wood with one or two healthy growing tips. Make the cut at an angle, approximately 12 to 18 inches from the tip, above an old leaf scar.
3 Remove the leaves from the branch, leaving only leaves on the growing tip, if present. Set the cutting aside to dry for three to seven days.
4 Prepare a pot to receive the cutting. Fill it with a mixture of 2 parts perlite to 1 part potting soil.
5 Treat the cut end of the plumeria with rooting hormone, following package directions.
6 Insert the cutting into the potting media approximately 4 inches deep. Press the soil around the stem. Stake the cutting, tying gently with twine, if extra support is needed.
7 Water the potting media, allowing excess water to drain away. Keep the soil moist, but not wet.
8 Place the pot in a warm, sunny location. (filtered sun in Florida)
9 Allow approximately six to eight weeks for the root ball to fully develop. Repot or plant the cutting when new leaves appear.
