I don't want to get my hopes up. My trees have never bloomed, or something would happen to the inflo before it could bloom. But this is a pink(?) NOID. My friend took a branch off a plumeria tree on Maui and smuggled it in. I know, he is a bad man! He was kind enough to share it with me. I have had it for about 3 seasons. It was about 8" tall when I rooted it. Now it stands about 4 feet tall. Was going to transplant it from it's 3 gallon pot. Is it safe to do it now?

This probably another leaf but I thought I would check with you. This is an OLD tree gifted to me about 20 years ago...I think. If it bloomed I can't remember the color. I had a yellow NOID and a pink NOID from another friend. One died and IDK which this one is. It needs to bloom so it solves the mystery for me!

Looks like another leaf but be patient you might get an inflo this year. I think your weather is warm enough now so it is safe to repot.

I agree and here's hoping for blooms soon, Cheryl.

You were right, of course. They were leaves. But don't you think this is leafing out in an odd, uneven way?? All my other trees leave out in such a nice even pattern. This one looks funny! What is with all the leafe sprouts on the side? Am I getting branches?

I would say branching is on its way. What do you think, Hetty? I always try to ask Hetty to confirm my "quesses". Sticking tongue out

Yes - odd branching for sure. It is not common for Plumeria to branch spontaneously like this.

Here is an updated pix of the branching and odd branching going on. The tree does look weird and non-symmetrical for now. But I am sure it will be a beauty some day!
