It depends on the way the cutting was taken. Even though you can get just a stick of plumeria to root and grow leaves, it seems to need to be a forked branch you must start with. That may be just folk wisdom, but as I've observed it holds true. And it could take two or three years for first bloom.

thank you so much i cannot stop wondering the surprises nature has for me.
for example this morning i saw a 2 meter high hollyhock bent over all the way down to the ground and along its stem there were horizontal little offshoots starting there way up.
incredible.
