    Love the shape of the flowers and leaves. More ‘angles’ than the regular variety I have. I’ve only seen these in pink.

    Have a great week.

    My plant has just produced a bloom, and I am considering keeping it in a pot. Any suggestions? Advice?

      I have no extensive experience in this particular kind of plumeria; however, they are generally very tough plants. I simply break off a branch, stick it in the ground and a few weeks later it flourishes!

      I would think that given the right conditions (you didn’t mention what location you’re at), I should think it will flourish both in the ground or in a pot.

      Potted plants like plumerias I think would take a bonsai habit and stay small.

    I live in Costa Rica. I usually ‘stick a piece of plant in the ground’ too, and they usually do well. Maybe I will put the larger plant in a pot to protect it and try the others in the soil.

      Good idea Patricia. And I’ll come around to check on their progress. At least it’s an excuse to visit your lovely country! 😉
