Plumerias - Knowledgebase Question

Buena Park, Ca
Question by gmaof2

My plumerias do not bloom or grow. They put on a few leaves each year but grow very little and almost never bloom. What do I need to do. One is planted in a 12 in pot and is about 15 in. tall.
The other is in the ground and is about 2 ft tall.

What can I do?

Plumerias grow fastest when they are in full sunshine. They won't flower until they produce branches. When they are mature enough to develop branches they will bloom. There's not much you can do to induce bloom, or growth, for that matter. Mine is in a container and is about 5' tall and 4 years old. It is just now beginning to branch out and has developed a cluster of flower buds. I hope it flowers this summer. You'll just have to patient with yours. Eventually it will develop flowers.
