Well my seedlings are growing great now that most are in larger containers. I still have 30 more seedlings to re pot, but I ran out of soil and pots lol. I think my cutting may have rooted because when I tugged on it, there was some resistance, and it was very wrinkled a few weeks ago and now the cutting is plump again. I think It may be producing 2 side branches, which would be wonderful. I also found one Tillie Hughes seedling that has a side branch. Its the only one that has done that. Anyways I just wanted to post some updated pictures of my seedlings.

Thanks Mike. I was surprised when I saw the little branch. I still have 12 Celadine and 13 Tillie Hughes seedlings that need repotting and the rest are the seeds I started in April. Its neat seeing the different growth habits of each cultivar. I think my Mystery Thai and Tillie Hughes seedlings seem to be the most vigorous.

I would love to see pictures of your seedlings. I think my oldest seedlings are 10 months, but most are 3 months old. Is Rust harmful to plumerias? Its humid here spring through early summer, but late summer is less humid. I do mist my seedlings a couple of times a day, I know misting doesn't do much but any little bit helps lol. I got my seeds from a friend and I think she buys the seeds from Brad's Buds and Blooms. A 10-15 acre forest would be breath-taking. You would be the Johnny Appleseed of plumerias lol.

I forgot to add where I got my Tillie Hughes and Celadine seeds. Those were from another friend, the pods on her trees were mature enough to collect seeds, so she sent me fresh seeds. All but one sprouted.

LOL

from what i know rust is just going to cause leaf looking bad and dropping. Other then that I dont know of any problems it will cause in long run.

Brad's Buds and Blooms have some nice plumeria and they do have good specials on seeds now and then.

I get mine threw Hetty good seeds for good price.

I don't think I've ever seen rust on my larger plumeria. I guess its too dry here lol. The same friend also too me about A Piece of Paradise Candle Company that sells plumerias. I think I'll by some from them next year. I'm so glad to hear that Hetty. I was really worried about it because the trunk stayed wrinkly for the longest time. My friend sent me a picture of the blooms. She got cuttings from a tree in her neighborhood. No one has been able to ID either. But I look forward to seeing my cutting bloom. It did have an inflo but I cut it off.

Here is a picture of what my cutting's bloom will look like

It was the complete opposite here. Winter was wet here but spring was really dry which was unusual.
