Plumeria- Never flowered! - Knowledgebase Question

Berlin, Ma
Question by mpmacrides

I've had two plumeria plants for the past 5 years that never flower. They produce beautiful green leaves. I take them indoors in the winter and bring them out in May. They are each in a two gallon planter. Any suggestions to get flowers? Thanks.

Plumerias must reach a certain maturity and produce a blooming hormone in their tips before flowering. This may take up to five years. Your plumeria needs lots of sunshine and the Plumeria Society of America recommends feeding with Superbloom and being patient. Aside from good growing conditions, all you can do is wait. Good luck with your plumeria!
