Father, several of my varieties exude this clear, sticky, sap-like substance. I don't have a clue what it is but apparently means nothing, or at least nothing bad. I agree with Hetty, you'll soon have flowers. I have a feeling that without sun and without heat, blooming simply takes longer.

The ones I've grown all have shown the sap too. I have no clue why it's there, but it doesn't seem harmful.

You're lucky in that it looks like most of your flowers will bloom at the same time. Mine is blooming one at a time in the greenhouse. I only have 2 flowers open right now, and the first one open has faded to a lighter pink.

In my experience, the coloration of flowers is very dependent on climate. I have one that is a brilliant pink when it is mid-summer..........hot, humid, and sunny. When it blooms in the spring, there is only the faintest of pink showing, and that's along one side. I have a couple that won't have fragrance until it gets hot and muggy. Heck, I can take photos of a flower two days apart and you would swear the photos couldn't possibly be of the same flower.

That's interesting to know, and I guess it makes sense. Many of my other flowers change with time of year and how hot it is. I have an Orange Jubilee (Tecoma alata) that is very bright orange in the Fall, and Winter, and goes almost yellow during the Spring and Summer heat.

Hetty has always said that it is next to impossible to label a plumeria by pictures alone. They simply vary too much from climate to climate, month to month, and differences in growing conditions. Of course, having a great close-up camera helps. Whistling

Just a little more patience Father...with Plumerias, got to have a stockpile of patience in waiting for it to bloom. It will be very exciting to see the blooms on your plant.
I just call that sap, the happy sap..similar when I see it with my plumie and orchids. Big Grin
