Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a Natural Splash in a plumeria. I read some where that Udom Chok had a natural splash and that the pattern was consistant throughout the flowers and I thought that all Udom Chok's had this.

Does anyone know, or can anyone elaborate on this for me. I am now very confused about it and disappointed in the first bloom that I have seen on this plant. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I bought one of those too and I think the bloom is beautiful. I had a bit of a C/B on the tip of one of the blooms but that is it. The others are growing without any color break.

My Madame Poni Hybraid has a natural splash every single flower
has red markings on them even on the very first bloom.

My Udom Chok has two branches with inflos, so I will see how the flowers come out on the second branch. I have only had one flower bloom. I called the person I got it from and they said that it is a seedling of Penang Peach and that their is no such thing as a natural splash. They asked if it looked like a PP, and if so, I was on the right track. Funny they didn't mention that when I was buying it. That was not the answer I wanted to hear of course. It looks like a Lei Rainbow, with a smaller flower, if you ask me. :angry:
Here is a picture of the first bloom on the first day it opened.

This is what it looked like on the second day it opened:

This is what I was expecting:

If you look at the color of the buds in the pictures they are not the same, so I am not thinking that I am going to be seeing any flowers that look like this.
I feel like this is a job, that calls for the PLUMIE MAFIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously! This was enough for me to not even want anymore plumerias. I call this a very very expensive Lei Rainbow. I feel like putting it on the sellers door step in pieces, so at least I got my money's worth. :huh: :o :angry: <_<

Whereas I understand your frustration, I would never get rid of a plant based on what it looks like the first time it blooms.

I think a 'natural splash' is known as a Chimera. Jim Little writes a bit about this in his book.

Coming from someone with your experience Dutchlady, I am sure you are right, I guess I just don't have the patience for this. Thinking it was a natural splash, I thought that I would see it on it's first blooms thats why I got it. I also purchased it as a large rooted plant.

Phuta Raksa, a Thai variety has natural streaking, etc... very beautiful and yes, it is on every flower to some degree.

I'm going to bust in here and make a bold (but REALLY experienced) statement...) Unless you have first hand knowledge of the sellers on Ebay, DO NOT go there for plumeria. Ask here, and the experienced (read "have been used and abused) members will lead you in the right direction! You will save a ton of money and heartache, and in the end you will get the plumeria you were after. There are sellers there that I heartily endorse, but it's 5% of the sellers that you encounter.

I didn't purchase it on ebay. I got it from a friend of mine. Someone who lived in my area. When I talked to him on the phone about it, he said he sold a lot of these to people. I asked if he had seen it bloom and he hadn't. I ask where he got it and I was not familiar with the seller. I also got a J105 from him with a c/b, so we will see how that comes out, at least with that one if it doesn't have a color break I would still be happy with the flower.
Thanks for the support and encouragement, I was pretty upset, only cause I paid a lot for that plant. We will see, still has 2 more inflos that are going to bloom.

Dutchlady, you are always right!

That is basically what mine did except I only had one little line of red at the tip of one of the petals.
