I'm somewhat a plumeria Newbie, here. I have plumeria but learning about growing techniques etc.

I just acquired an orange Plumeria NOID. It has three branches, 2 are well-established, the third is just budding. The way it it shooting out in 3 ways from the same point on the stalk. It may be an issue, being off-balanced and all. I see branch breaking in the future. How do you encourage branching and when is a good time to do it? It is only 18" tall and I am just anticipating. Thanks for your suggestions. Thumbs up I am learning a lot here.

I would leave it alone. Plumeria branch naturally after blooming.
