You can get a Plumeria to bloom from seed in 3 years? Blinking I had been told the only way to get them to bloom in that short of time is cuttings. If this is true I would love to find some seeds for postage or swap (I dont have any plumeria seed or plants but have MANY other seeds) I am looking for somthing sunset/sunrise colored?

Misti - a plumeria cutting can bloom the same year it is rooted. Seedlings can take anywhere from 2 years upwards, more common is 3-4 years.
Since plumeria do not grow true from seed, you can only hope they show the characteristics (and colors) of the parent plant.
Contact me if you want to trade for some seeds.

The best way to start seeds, in my experience is the following:

Take a bowl or tray, put in some warm water (and a few drops of Superthrive if you have it). Put the seeds in the bowl. Take a paper towel and put it on top of the seeds so they stay submerged. Soak overnight.
The following day, take the paper towel and squeeze it out, put the seeds between two layers of the paper towel and put the whole thing in a ziploc bag; keep in a warm place. You will generally see the seeds sprout within a week and at that point you can pot them up. If the seed husk doesn't fall off by itself, you can spray some water on it a few times to soften it and gently pull it off.
