Old and tough Plumie! Leaving 2 weeks ago, it had no leaves. Look at it now!

I don't know if you have read from the other threads but this Plumie died back to the ground a couple of times but refused to give up. I finally learned how to treat it better all the way around and it seems to be thriving now. Look at the size of the original, um trunk? This would have been a mother of a tree had I learned to take good care of it earlier in it's life. I hope it has forgiven me.

It is worth keeping Cheryl. I can never throw away any of my plumerias even the middle branch. I'm sure the 4 new branches is a sure sign that it has forgiven you and now it is very happy!

I gave all the Plumies some nummy fertilizer before I head off to the hospital again. Only the pudica has inflo. Maybe they will eat up, drink up, and produce! I don't ask for too much! Rolling on the floor laughing
