The hardest part of planting plumeria seeds will be finding the seeds. While plumeria is not difficult to start from seeds the seed grown plants will not look like the parent plant when they mature, so commercial growers prefer to use cuttings. You won’t find plumeria seeds in most seed catalogs. However seeds can be collected from growing plants and a search online will probably locate a source of seed. When you have the seeds here’s how to plant plumeria seeds.


  1. Split pods open if they have not split and remove the winged seeds.
  2. Prepare a planting mix.
    • Use 2 parts commercial potting soil without fertilizer to 1 part perlite and blend well.
    • Moisten the mix until it holds together but doesn’t drip water. {"smallUrl":"https:\/\/\/images\/thumb\/3\/30\/Plant-Plumeria-Seeds-Step-2Bullet2.jpg\/v4-460px-Plant-Plumeria-Seeds-Step-2Bullet2.jpg","bigUrl":"\/images\/thumb\/3\/30\/Plant-Plumeria-Seeds-Step-2Bullet2.jpg\/aid2141893-v4-728px-Plant-Plumeria-Seeds-Step-2Bullet2.jpg","smallWidth":460,"smallHeight":345,"bigWidth":728,"bigHeight":546,"licensing":"<div class=\"mw-parser-output\"><p>License: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow noreferrer noopener\" class=\"external text\" href=\"https:\/\/\/licenses\/by-nc-sa\/3.0\/\">Creative Commons<\/a><br>\n<\/p><p><br \/>\n<\/p><\/div>"}
  3. Fill individual pots or flats with the prepared potting mix.
  4. Make a hole in the potting mix with your finger.
  5. Insert each seed in a hole with the papery ”wing” pointing up.
  6. Firm the soil around the seeds, leaving a small amount of the “wing” showing.
  7. Place the planted pots or flats in a warm, above 60ºF (15.5ºC), sunny place.
  8. Keep the potting soil moist but not too wet until the seeds emerge, which should be in about 21 days.
  9. Transplant plumeria seedlings to individual pots after 2 sets of leaves have developed.
