So this is my three year old Belle Vista from seed going through its first inflo. It's my first plumeria flowering experience too, and in an Alaskan winter no less. It all started mid October and the first flower started to unfurl two days ago. How long does the whole process typically take from inflo to fully opened blossoms? And how long do the blooms last? Granted it's environment is artifical and in a proper climate more suited to raising them it will likely be different but I am just curious about the overall time frame. This tree is incredibly prolific and forgiving. It wants to grow and even though I don't cater to it's tropical needs, it doesn't seem to care :)

It can vary with different plants. Typically once the flower opens it can last anywhere from 5 to 10 days with my plants but there out under the sun. With artificial light your flowers my not be as big as they could be but they should last 5 days or more. That is a very healthy looking plant. Very well done.😎

You can always post a picture from the same angle every day, in order to see how the bloom has changed until the bloom fully opens.

That is amazing you brought it to flower from seed in 3 years and in Alaska! Wow! Congratulations! I bought two one-year-old seedlings two years ago and they have yet to flower. Please share what you did. What did you feed them? Please do update with pictures as Luis suggested!
