You can feed your plumeria once in the spring and once in mid-summer with a high Phosphate fertilizer (middle number), like Peters "Super Blossom Booster 10-50-10". If you use a fertilizer high in Nitrogen you will promote tall, leggy growth rather than lots of branches. Since plumeria only bloom when they branch, you'll want to use a low nitrogen fertilizer. Hope this makes sense!
