I planted a Plumeria tree (height of 60cm) in my garden 2.5 years ago. I trimmed any side shoots and staked the tree with bamboo in hope of developing a strong healthy tree with a single trunk. The plant grew to a height of 200cm with spindly trunk of 160cm and a ridiculous diameter of 5 cm. i was hoping the day will come and get rid of the stake.But, unfortunately the tree still rely on the support. Is there is any solution or ideas i can do to make the tree strong and withstand on its own. Thanks.

Welcome! AhmadK
Is this is a seedling or a rooted cutting? Is it getting full sun?
