Thumb of 2017-09-21/PlantMania/55be15 18 Seeds Pods - Hummingbirds and Lovebugs adore this plant!!!

What is the safest way to support this during its growth? I figure due to the weight this will cause a break in the stem.

Also I know that some plants will abort some seeds/pods but I have not encountered this with Plumeria - is there a chance that it will abort some of these?

That is a LOT of pods!!! Hurray!
I have seen plants with a substantial number of pods; the inflo stem will strengthen to hang on to them. I'd say go for it!

Thanks Hetty!!! I was afraid that they may start breaking the stem. I will keep a lookout to see if there any stress factors during its growth time.
