Jeff, your picture is out of focus when I click on it (which enlarges the picture). Hetty can probably tell you how long before flowers but I would have to see another picture so that I can see the development of the inflo stem and buds.

You are not kidding Mark619..First I was waiting for a simple leaf...For a while there I thought I botched the whole group up..Patience I kept telling myself !!! Now it looks like I need more land. I'm experimenting with so much..Now I have a bunch of Foxtail Palm ( Wodyetia bifurcata) seeds that I have no clue how to germinate....

I posted this on March 31st
The thread "Can it be? inflo before before leaves?" in Plumeria forum

I got my first bloom yesterday. Fortunately, I had the foresight to move it out of the strong winds and rain yesterday It smells divine, like a pineapple rose with a dash of coconut!

That's a pretty one, Cheryl. Perhaps someone can ID it, not only by the picture but also the description of her fragrance.

5 year old NOID Orange from Corpus Christi. It rarely drops all it's leaves in the winter. In fact, this year, it kept most of them. But that fragrance! Makes you want to add a few ice cubes and drink it! ETD the bud is equally pretty!

That is certainly exciting to watch out for Jeff! Yes, just a bit more patience and wait, don't worry we will cheer you and your plant on! Big Grin I'd say about a month and a half more to wait.

drdawg said:Over the last several years, I cannot begin to tell you the number of people that have stated they have waited 8-10 years to see a particular plumeria bloom. That just blows my mind. Talk about patience. Whistling

I will have more inflo. this year than all the previous years combined. Of course, until about five years ago, I only had a handful of plumeria, and those handful were all derived from the three varieties I started out with 25 years ago. My number of inflo. right now number ten, and though that's no comparison compared to those who are serious plumeria growers, such as Hetty, it is still exciting. But I will see perhaps 6-10 first time bloomers (I am anticipating some unnamed cuttings and seedlings to bloom this summer). That alone is exciting. I will have to come up with a bunch of new names. I need to put my thinking-cap on. Rolling my eyes.
