|Hi. I have read that plumerias can grow up to 1' per year. My 2012 seedlings are about 3' tall from the soil line but my cuttings have not grown as tall. Do cuttings generally not grow as quickly as seeds?|
Since I am only 5' tall I guess I'll have to start lugging around a step stool or a ladder just to get a closer look at the flowers on the seedlings.

|Seedlings tend to put up a big growth spurt when they are young, remember they are trying hard to be trees!! Cuttings don't generally do that anymore, unless they are a lanky variety.|

|Great. Thank you. Your answer made up mind as to whether or not I should cut my seedling in half next year. Since it bloomed and threw out 5 new branches I will do that early next spring. Hopefully the bottom half will produce as many new branches. Oh no...Just thought of another question. My seedlings are fat. The cuttings stayed the same in thickness. Can cuttings get fatter or do they stay the same after they have ben cut?|

| Ssssh. It would be helpful to know where you are so please update your profile to at least show your location when you post. That info. will show on the upper right corner.|
You might want to take a look at my recent post about my seedlings in "Plumeria Watch and Anticipation". There are previous posts as well (this spring/summer) referring to what my seedlings have done. Since they were my first seedlings, germinated in early Jan., 2014, I have asked lots of questions about what I was seeing.
