How Fast Do Plumerias Grow?
Posted 23 July 2010 - 06:56 AM
Is it normal for Plumerias to grow this fast? Or am I an excellent beginner gardener? :rolleyes:
I also planted some seeds by April and most of the plants are 12" to 14" high. At this rate, I'll need a new backyard soon...
Just wondering if this is normal.

I planted a Miami Rose cutting in the ground in Spring of 2006 (a little over 4 years ago). It is now at least 12 feet high and my 4-year old son climbs in its branches. That thing is a skyrocket.
Meanwhile I have a Dwarf Singapore Pink that is almost as old and is about 2 feet tall and plenty happy in its 12" pot.

Do keep in mind that these are TREES and eventually they will all be big, unless you keep them pruned.
In my experience, seedlings will grow faster if you give them more space to grow. My seedlings that are of blooming size are all around 5 ft or over.

Just kidding!!! Sounds like you have a green thumb! I have no real advice. Just wanted to tell you how totally jealous I am!!!
But I have some Miami Rose seedlings which are bigger than my other seedlings which I germinated about the same time.
I'm going to buy them a 15 gallon pot - just in case!!! ;) :) :lol:
