Last week was my birthday and I didn't have time to even think about it, although I turned 45. Busy week,busy weekends, so nothing planned for that day or the weekend following it. But hubby and my kids got me a surprise and on Saturday afternoon they told me we're going out just to celebrate all 4 of us my b-day. Not knowing what they had in mind, I soon found out that they planned a trip to a nursery close to us. So on Saturday I got to choose a plumeria for my b-day and I'm so happy now! They didn't have too many to choose from, and most of them were thai cultivars, not from my wish list but I got lucky enough to find an Aztec Gold.

Here are some pic with it:

The owner of the nursery said that this specific plumeria is 5 years old. It looks healthy to me but I'm not an expert. I checked it for firmness and it doesn't seem to have any rot signs. I am also impatient to see of it will bloom soon, I can see some shy buds. Should I fertilize it soon or should I wait a few weeks for it to adjust itself to the new home? They also said not to pot it up for at least one year. The moisture meter showed soil is still moist so no watering until next week I guess.

I'm curious about the 'five years old' statement. That might imply it was grown from a seed. Did he tell you anything else?

You know what? I forgot to ask if it is grown from a seed or form a cutting. I think I will call/email them regarding this. They said they do a lot of grafting there but this is not a graft as per the owner's saying.

Is Osmocote good for plumies? I know it's good for my cycads and I was wondering if it works for plumies too.

It is a good balanced timed-release fertilizer and as such works fine on Plumeria.

Checking on my little baby again, I just noticed that one of the top leaves is beginning to bend and I am positive it was all the way up and straight yesterday. Here's a pic of it:

What could be wrong?

Thanks Hetty. Maybe she's just getting acclimatized to her new home. I think I should relax a bit. Smiling

I think your family gave you what I consider the perfect B-day gift...I hope you'll post pics of your new baby in bloom. I'm dropping hint's to my family about getting me one of those fancy cell-phones that take pictures...for my birthday, so I can post pics, too.
Happiest of Birthdays to you, even if I am late in wishing it, and congratulations on your new green baby:)

Thank you Cyra! Indeed, it was a wonderful surprise and birthday gift for me! I will post pictures as soon as I have. For now we have a few cloudy days, not much sun in sunny California hahaha.

Mima...send some of those clouds my way....the heat is doing me in, and it's still spring in central CA. Don't think I'm ever going to acclimate to Central CA weather. (I miss the weather in SoCal, if not the cost-of-living, there)
You are welcome to a our sun...I'll trade you 3 days of sun for 3 cloudy days, per week. I think the plumeria would be ok w. that, plus weekend sun, too.

Cyra, I know, the weather here is just great. But of course we have our share of cloudy days, if rain is so rare around here. Smiling

GigiPlumeria,thanks a lot. I hope it blooms, I can see some buds, but very small. I still want more. I was waiting for some cuttings and I guess hubby felt bad for me not having my plumies for my b-day, so here it was the big surprise! Thumbs up

I agree great DH! And if each tip will bloom this year, you might have 2 to 4 new branches with your new inflos. My plummies are just now showing signs of life. I lost the blooms of the 3 inflos of my Divine due to March cold snap Sad but got rewarded with 3 new branches per inflos I lost. Thumbs up Now the new branches, which are only 3 inches long are shooting out new blooms (which is unique trait of Divine), so I just got to be very patient. Whistling Whistling

I think he got tired of hearing me talking about this cutting and that cultivar etc. Big Grin
Anyway, I loved the surprise and the visit to that nursery. I hope my Aztec will bloom and if everything goes well with it, I will certainly get other plumies. Thumbs up

My plumie has new leaves coming out or growing if they were claws. It's just beautiful, to wake up in the morning and see another leaf opened or other tiny claws appearing.
