Does anyone know how to maximize the fragrance of plumerias? For example, I have some Pacific Pearl plumerias that are supposed to have the classic fragrance, but it is very weak.
More sunshine is supposed to help strengthen the fragrance, but is there anything else (special fertilizers, care, and so forth) to do that will strengthen the fragrance? Thank you for your time.

Welcome! and no, I am not aware of any product that can intensify fragrance. Most Plumeria are more fragrant at different times of day though, so be sure to check.

Welcome, OldFool. The plumeria that bloom in (mostly) full sun seem to be more fragrant than those that bloom in more shady areas and I get quicker blooming with those in more sun. I don't know of anything that you can give them (fertilizer or example) that increases the fragrance.

I "maximize" the scented plants (roses, camellias, etc.) by smelling them on cool, cloudy, non-windy mornings but I have not heard of any "nutrients" that increase the amount of fragrance produced.
