I'm new here plus I live in Australia so hopefully you can help as I have been reading and now feel I'm overloaded with information. The first picture is what started my love/fascination with these beautiful trees. A friend gave this to me and said she had it for 3yrs to which it never flowered. All up this tree is around 5yrs old. Now if you look closely you can see on the branches from when I took it over as they have gotten a lot thicker.
My questions are 1- should I cut the 3 branches off as they may snap later down the track 2- why is the base wrinkled 3- is the main stem too long and should I cut it now or leave for next year?
We live in the north part of Western Australia so it gets very hot and through reading I re-potted then in August and feel I have done something wrong as they all were fine before re-potting them and now they all seem to have something going wrong so I have more questions and pictures of my other plumeria's but feel this is long enough Smiling

Welcome! Nickster78!
I suspect your plant is a seedling which is why it hasn't flowered.
Your plant looks healthy enough. August is your winter so you should expect it to be dormant at that time. You should start seeing new growth any day now! Keep us posted!
