Make sure the pods are ripe; they stay on the tree for 9 months, through the dormant season.
A ripe pod will start to dry out and crack. Then the seeds can be easily taken out.
I put them in vermiculite or just some well draining soil and mist several times a day.

If you have ripe seeds you can start them any time.

Nothing to do with age. It's all about the pollinators. The type of Plumeria makes a difference too. Some are great pod setters and others will never give you pods. Shrug!
Here is an example of a great seed setter ( a Plumeria obtusa type):

Hetty, forgive me that I laughed. I thought you named your private collection Naples Botanical Garden and was thinking of naming my collection "KD's Botanical Garden."

Forgive me if I'm wrong again...you have plumerias growing at the said garden?

I think naming your collection KD's Botanical Garden would be perfectly acceptable.

However, I am the curator (and founder) of the National Plumeria Collection at Naples Botanical Garden which is why I feel proprietary about it Whistling
