When my plummies are so tall I can't see close enough, I use my camera to take a picture, then I enlarge it to get a good look! In this case it looks like branching? What say you panel of Experts?!

Any inflows? Usually splits when you have an inflo,or branches out at the last cutting spot...

Info?? Did you just say that 4-letter word that I LOVE?! Yippeeee!! Hurray!

This is a photo from the little sister tree that I have been waiting to bloom for 20 years, it's the short one on the right.

This flowering season is suddenly getting very exciting for me!!

20 years!!! WOW!! Do you fertilize? I use liquid kelp and a synthetic called cha Ching by fox farms...worked really well for me so far..these are roots from my red spider busting out of the pot!

Might be from the cha Ching....

Hi Cheryl! It is hard to see from the angle in the pic, so I cant tell... you need to look straight between the leaves or wait a week an then you can see with your method. here is a pic of one I took in may showing you what it should look like! This is an Inflo just getting started..you really need to give it another week to be sure...but this one started blooming last week! (this picture was taken in may!)

That thing in the middle sure looks like an inflo = short for inflorescence (and a five letter word LOL) but it looks to be like there is only one branch forming. Take more pics!

The sun is shining and bright but I think I caught it in sunlight. I was a contortionist, wrapping my arms around the little tree to bring it lower towards, me, pushing the focus button then blindly taking the picture. A little out of focus but I think I lucked out. "Ladder?" Did someone say get a ladder? Naaaaah. Where's the challenge in photography while standing on a ladder?! I think it's inflorescence, my favorite13-letter word. ...or an optical illusion. (heading out to get the ladder)

Yes, I think I am going to have to dig into my bag of patience and wait. It's still very exciting to me. And I will watch it every day, no doubt. I flicked a Carpenter Ant off a tree the other day but let the lady bug and the Anole stay put. I rotate them and make sure they have water. Tomorrow is Feeding Day. I might give them a meal a day early. Smiling I am Cheryl, AKA ShadyGreenThumb, I am a Helecopter Plumeria Mommy!

@Mark619 I feed with SuperBloom. My story is a long one and I won't bore everyone again with it. But it involved 2 gifted Plumeria, a busy mommy of 2 little girls, 2 or 3 harsh freezes, a pot too big, not enough sun, not enough feedings, and serious illness in the family. But I am back now with more time for myself which means more time for my plumeria and everyone else who has been ignored these two decades!

That particular picture there does not look like an inflo...rather more like a limb starting like Hetty had suggested...An inflo will have a cluster of little bumps at that size...also, most leaves start from the center, but before the inflo comes up through the center...the new leaves will start moving apart to allow room for the inflo. You have that going on, but the tip is smooth like a limb...or I have seen inflos come up with no flower nodules on them ...or very few.

Just give it time...that always reveals what you are getting!
PS...we are no different than you. We walk our yard twice a day looking for new crowns (inflos) every day! The other morning I found 3..one on a Fools Gold (baby), a Dawn Pink, and on my Kiya! Great way to start the day!! So be excited !

I know the feeling Cheryl, everyday am watching and hoping for inflos on the picky bloomers Whistling like my Puu Kahea. Bloomed beautifully, first year, disappointing small blooms last year, no blooms this year. No to mention all the other ones I purchased over 2 years ago that have not bloomed yet.
