When fertilizing Plumeria you should use a high Phosphate fertilizer (middle number), like Peters "Super Blossom Booster 10-50-10". If you use a fertilizer high in Nitrogen you will make a healthy but tall and leggy plants. Plumeria only branch when they bloom, therefore you must use a fertilizer that will promote the most blooms, which in turn makes the most branches. What brand should you use? I recommend PETERS "Super Blossom Booster" because it is loaded with micronutrients. Best wishes with your plumeria!
