Plumeria pudica (Plumeria)
Plumeria pudica (Plumeria) is perhaps the best Plumeria available today. They are very easy to grow, and bloom heavily for a long time. The flowers also have a light fragrance. This Plumeria requires lots of direct sun and drier conditions most of the year. Normally evergreen in warmer locations. They can use a little water during the warmer months, something like once every 10-15 days if it doesnt rain. During the winter freezing temperatures should be avoided the plant can be kept drier with waterings every 4 weeks or so. Plumerias dont like wet soil, therefore good drainage is important. Fertilization should be done primarily during the warmer months when the plant is actively growing. Fertilize with the approximate 1-1-1 ratio are preferable. Many varieties of Plumerias are affected by rust specially during the late summer/fall. We havent seen this problem affecting the Plumeria pudica.
