I have had this one for years and even have 25 little seedlings growing from it. I first thought the seed pod was some kind of alien growing on it. Rolling on the floor laughing Hey, I'm learning. Only I have no clue what kind of Plumeria it is. Can someone identify it for me please?

Welcome! @Ibedwards4, aka Lisa.

It is practically impossible to identify a plumeria variety simply by its flowers. There are probably thousands of varieties now that so many folks are growing plumeria from seed. Years ago (perhaps 2-3 decades) it was far easier to identify plants because there were still relatively few out there. The Celadine is about the only one I can identify, not by its flowers, since there are now a dozen or more sub-varieties, but by the lateral border pattern of mature leaves. Those distinctive borders don't change. Note the three laterial veins along the leaf border. That's the Celadine.

Ha, ha. We always want more photos. Whistling

Lisa, it would be simply coincidence if you happened to have the Celadine. That's simply the only plumeria I can ID by its leaf-pattern, and that's why I gave you the info.
