Plumeria Questions

Plumeria Questions

Last summer I got a nice, fat plumeria cutting that I tried rooting a bit late in the year. It made one leaf and then shut down when the weather got cold. So.. I decided to give it another try this past spring. Well, the pot the cutting was in got rained on quite a bit, and it looks as if it started rotting from the cut end up. So I cut the end off about a month ago. It continued to soften, so I wrote it off as dead. Two weeks ago, I realized... a) the end I'd cut off was not going to die right away (it's still alive), and b) that the "rotted" stem was still alive--a tiny little bud of leaves is developing on it. So um.. What do I do? Is it possible to save these if the stems are dry, but mushy? They won't take root, will they? I recently poured some agar plates for a mushroom cloning experiment and I had some left over, so I poured it into little 1/2 pint mason jars. Would the plumeria "nibblet" take root in that?
