Though not native to Hawaii, one would never know as the frangipani tree is very common there. So common, in fact, that the flowers are often used to make leis. The frangipani tree is originally native to South America, but has been transported all over the world. These trees have beautiful white flowers seemingly constantly in bloom, yet they are easy to grow.
Take a piece from an established frangipani tree. These cuttings can be sold pre-cut, but if you have to cut the piece yourself be sure to wear gloves as the sap from this tree can burn the skin. Cut a piece that is at least 6 inches long.
Set the cutting in a cool dry place and allow it to dry out and heal the cut edge.
Fill a large pot with a mixture of two parts soil to one part sand. Plant the cutting in the pot by simply sticking it into the dirt, about an inch deep.
Water the cutting every two weeks until it has grown roots.
Keep the plant near a sunny window. Optimally franipani need at least six hours of sunlight a day.
