Hi ... my first day so I hope I'm in the right place to ask this....

I have had this wedding bouquet plumeria for about 2 months now and it just never seems to look any better. My other plumerias are a different type. Do I care for this type the same way?

Welcome! Kimber. Does the plant have roots?

Kimber, Welcome! I believe what you have is P. pudica, I have seen it labled as Bridal Bounquet. This is a easy to grow Plumeria here and one that usually drops its leaves this time of year.
Here is a photo for comparison...

Yes it has roots but my other plumerias just burst out and this one just sits..lol
Thank you for the response . .. I'll just care for it and wait for it to come out. I hope it'll be so worth the wait.
Thank you... kimber

Hi Kimber, Welcome!

I agree, your plant looks like Plumeria (Plumeria pudica) Since your other Plumeria's have sprouted leaves, I bet this one will do so in the next few weeks or so since the weather is really starting to warm up!

Yes I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it come out soon but yes that's definitely the right plant. When I first looked at it I knew the actual flower looked just like my plumerias but puzzled by the shape of the leaves. I had to have one but for some reason couldn't find one for about a month of looking. I'm not crazy about the thinner trunks they have but still glad I found one . . Tnks all
Thank you... kimber

There you go, Kimber. I don't grow the pudica. I only tried to grow it once but couldn't figure out how to overwinter it. The one I had died over that first winter. I have been offered cuttings but there are too many that I CAN grow, so I won't bother with it.
