I know that I've spell plumeria wrong, but I 've have a royal red and it won't bloom? I've put coffee grounds and other acidicity in with flower bloom. So, is there any advice to help me get my plant to bloom. Thank You Linda

Plumerias need to reach a certain stage of maturity before they have the ability to bloom so if yours is under 3 years of age, it won't be ready to bloom for another year or two. Plumeria should be fed with a high phosphorous fertilizer. Phosphorous encourages flowering so try Bloom Booster or something similar. Finally, plumerias need lots of sunshine so make sure yours is getting plenty or it won't flower.

Hope this helps!
