Many folks root plumerias by starting them off in a plastic bag. One of the main advantages of bag rooting is that space is saved. A bag takes up much less space than a one-gallon pot. Also, as most folks use a heating mat, concentrated heat can get to the root ball to improve the rooting results. I got the idea of using a burlap bag instead of a plastic bag from Thomas Cox. Advantages of the burlap bag are: 1) Once there are roots showing, the burlap bag can be planted in a pot and the burlap disintegrates; and 2) Using burlap means I don’t have to fuss with getting the plastic bag off the rootball without breaking fragile roots. Below are the steps to burlap bag rooting a plumeria.
