Has anyone tried to grow Plumeria? One of my neighbors gave one to me from a trip to Hawaii. This is what is happening

the leaves develop, then turn brown/black and fall off. Too much or too little water?

    Too much water!!! Sunshine and warm temps are what plumerias need to survive. Try not giving it water and see what happens.

    What type of soil did you plant it in?

    I have tried and tried with plumera. It is hard to grow right, too much water is not a good thing. It's better when it has to struggle a little, and it likes sun better than shade. Of all I've planted (maybe ten), one came out great. And, it is planted in gravel. Go figure.
