Why are my frangipani cuttings going soggy

Australia Au

The branches of my frangipani cuttings are going soggy.
All looked healthy and flowered and had full leave in summer. Not just a couple of branches but all
Some in large pots some in the ground.



Arabella - have you been watering them? I hope not. They love to completely dry out, so all the leaves drop from them, which is where they get their nickname: Dead Man's Fingers.
It's their sap that prevents successful growth.
The soggy stems will NOT recover - remove, and then DO NOT WATER.
