@Mark619. Isnt your area heading into its Cloudy Season? If i recall, So Cal gets cloudy mornings then the sun pops out mid to late afternoon very soon? You know how much our plumeria love, love, love bright, hot sunshine. I think that could make a difference in start up. I bet by July, yours will he thruving! If course, also remember Hetty's dont go dormant either.

Yours look about the same as most of mine, Mark. We are finally getting into the mid to upper 80's this week but lows are still in the mid 50's to mid 60's.

Hetty, that is a beauty! What is its name?

Mark, mine are about the same here in the desert. Have seen pictures of others around our valley that are fully leafed out and blooming. These appear to be larger established plants....maybe some microclimates. We will reach 100's Thumbs down for about 3 days this week and then back to 90's. Don't feel good about leaving them out for potential sunburn in those high temps. Will move them back to patio. That is my exercise program Green Grin!

Mark, yes, it is a slow season for me too, but it is happier in some sense this time since we did get some rain this May, so humidity is a tad higher, but the temps has been cooler, so it was hesitant to wake up faster. Hey, your plumies are much more awake than mine Big Grin

Please explain what Plumeria Hills is, Hetty. I know you have shown pictures and given descriptions, but I am sure new folks to ATP would enjoy knowing about this wonderful area.
