I have been told by several members of this site that I can name my Plumeria seedlings. I have tried looking this up on the internet and the only thing I can find is that you're not supposed to sell the seedlings under the name of the parent. If you do sell them it has to say 'seedling' and then the parent name. That's the way I'm understanding. Since people are telling me that I can name it is there a way to register the name.

A seedling of P. rubra is genetically different from the parent plant so yes, a new variety. You can name it, and if it is sufficiently different from any already existing varieties, the name can be registered with the Plumeria Society of America. Generally you should wait until the third bloom cycle of a seedling to register it because the bloom can still change during this time.

@Dutchlady That's awesome. I have never got to name a plant. Out of the 20 different seedlings l have only one has bloomed and it only bloomed once so I guess I should wait a bit longer before I go nameing all of them.

P.S. Thanks for moving this thread
