Its been a while since i've posted. Had some life changing events (good and bad) that have kept me away.
Anyway, In Sept/Oct last year i posted pics of my White that started to bloom after i rooted a cutting earlier in the year. I brought it in and kept that Plumeria blooming as long as i could under grow lights (Oct in NY is not Plumeria weather). The plant finally went Dormant end of October and i followed everyones advice to keep it dry and not water over the winter. I stuck the plant in a back room and let it sleep for the winter. The flower stalk slowly dried and the buds that didn't have time to bloom dropped off.
This spring as the plumerias started to wake, i am noticing the flower stalk on the white is regaining buds and is about to bloom again. This is so unexpected. I assumed the stalk would dry out and eventually drop off as i have read about. Is this unusual, or am i just experiencing what everyone else already knew? Can I actually get 2 'cycles' of flowers on the same inflow. Looks that way.

and another back under the lights when it cooled back down last week.

|It definitely can (as you are experiencing) and does happen, though "typically" yes, they will dry up and fall off at the end of the season. Hooray for the quick flowers for you this spring!
