i have several plumerias in the backyard, plenty of sun, houston texas, blooming, etc. all of a sudden several limbs are drooping and the leaves are facing downward. should i cut these limbs off, is it weight or a disease. i've never had this happen.

thanks,

mark

Mark,

How big is your plumeria? How often do you water it, and is it in the ground? Are the limbs and trunk firm or soft?

The drooping limbs sounds serious. My plumeria are growing in pots because I have to bring them in every winter. If they are healthy, they are very hard due to the milk inside. I've killed my share of plumeria, and if they rot or dehydrate they become soft and mushy and eventually like paper. Plumeria are succulents. They don't need a lot of water. They need heat and light, and it sounds like you have plenty of those.
