I have 3 plumeria areas by the pool mixed with roses. I moved some plants from my cutting "training area" this year and they grew quickly and things became a little crowded. So I thinned out several of the lower leaves. They are about to bloom, does cutting the lower leaves effect blooming? I know airflow is important. Does it help like deadheading a rose?
I searched but could find a single mention about this.
I guess i'll find out soon enough.

Verdict is in, since at least 8 plants went to full bloom in one week, it does no harm. However, it is the time of year to bloom in FL anyway.
