In 2011, no our trip to Hawaii for our wedding, I got this plumeria plant. It was basically a stick in a plastic bag that they sell to the tourists in the airport. That summer, I stuck it in a pot and nothing happened. I was just about to throw it out when it started to get some growths on the top. Since then I’ve been lugging it in and out of the house for the winters and summers. I haven’t really been careful with it at all and a few times have wanted to just get rid of it.. like every winter when it gets bugs and all the leaves fall off. UGH. The plumeria plant used to be a “Y” shape, with two branches coming out of a main trunk, but one day a big push broom fell on it and seared on of those branches right off. So for the past two summers it has been growing at a crazy angle.

Yesterday I noticed some new growths and this morning a flower! Looks like there will be more flowers too! Maybe I should try to repot the plant properly and actually care for it… then again, if I actually try, I’ll probably mess it up!

It should also be noted that I’m pretty positive that I bought that I bought the yellow plumeria plant, because that’s my favorite. Obviously this is not yellow!
