Center Cuts

Center Cuts are an often-overlooked cutting that deserves a second chance! A center cut is a branch without a growth tip. When a center cut is planted buds form towards the top of the cutting and a new growth tip will form. Often several new tips will appear!

Because the single cutting forms multiple tips so quickly, center cuts are often prefered to single tip cuttings. Another benefit to center cuts is the diameter is typically much larger than a cutting with a growth tip because of its age. It makes a much more solid tree base.

Maui Plumeria Gardens sells center cuttings at a discount to its other cuttings because of the perceived value of center cuts. The lack of the smooth growth tip makes them less physically attractive at first - but give it a few months! A center cut will produce a fuller plumeria tree in a shorter time.
