I recently got this Plumeria for about 3 weeks and it looks the same. It has some leaves and an inflo. I'm not sure why there is no new growth. I have another Plumeria whose leaves are growing well. But this one with the inflo doesnt seem to grow. It's like at a standstill. I watered it upon arrival and repot it in a bigger pot. That was May 28. Yesterday, June 14, I watered it and fertilized it. I leave it outside where it gets full sun and partial shade. The claw leaves has been the same for 3 weeks. It has not gotten bigger. Is there anything I can do to speed things up? Or is there a problem with it?

Definitely no "speeding" up the process when it comes to plumeria. Good thing is, it looks perfectly healthy. Some just grow faster than others. Patients my friend. Good things come to those...
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

Hi Sarim,

I'm just across the border from you and up until now, we've had a lot of below-normal overnight temperatures this Spring.

I put my plumeria (~80+), citrus, and palm trees out the first weekend in May (and had to bring them back in when it snowed the following weekend!) Up until now, most of my plumeria have been very slow in moving from the "waking-up" stage to the "rapid-growth" stage. But with the current heatwave in progress, the growth seems to be accelerating, so your plants should probably experience the same over the next week.

Thank you John. I was wondering because my other plumeria is rapidly growing with new leaves. It has produced 4 new leaves while this one has not produced any. Let's see what happin the new few weeks!
