Plumeria bloom

Uploaded: May 14, 2008


Our Plumeria plant has bloomed for the second time in 18yrs. This bloom fell off and I took a bunch pics of it on black paper. Then I added a layer of black fill to even out the black tone.

Hey Peaches and Tammy.
Lazy plant maybe or maybe the owners didn't know exactly how to take care of it! Its supposed to bloom and then split it's branches to make more. I replanted it and put it in a different pot with different soil and a new fertilizer. Its a tropical plant so we keep it indoors. The plant comes from hawaii. It's the flowering plant that they make lei's from. #5926426

Do you put it outside in the summer? Maybe that would help. When you break the pieces off to re-pot they have to be left until they bottom seals over then you can re-pot them. Mine grow big & flower every year, I'm trying to get a red one to grow now. Looks good against the black=^..^= #6482552
