This unique seedling of Kukiat's had an inflo this spring, but it was too cool here so it aborted. I was definitely disappointed, but if every cloud has a silver lining, then the twelve branches that sprung forth in its place has to be it. I tried to make this picture a little brighter so you could see the branches. It's still not a great picture. I'll post another when the branches grow a little bit.

Thanks, guys. Dana, yes, the black spot is where the inflo was.

I too had a seedling with black tip a few years ago. I wiped it out, and many branches came in. It was crowded, but eventually they spread out. The branches eventually became very long. It's this seedling on the right.

I am delighted to have so many branches of this one. It's a very special seedling of Kukiat's called 'Fantasia.'

Very special indeed! That is one of the most interesting new hybrids I have seen! There are pictures of it on Kukiats website http://www.kukiatsgardens.com/PlumeriaGallery.html , The Clare Core is spectacular too, as are all of his new hybrids.

Brittany -- there's actually 12! LOL! Thanks:-)

Davie -- his web site is so great. I go there often to drool over his pictures and his seedlings. My 'Clare Corre' has an inflo for the first time ever, and I am very excited about it. I also have an inflo on 'Coral Cream,' 'Siam Lavender,' 'Sheer Beauty,' and 'Marble Ice Cream.' The anticipation is almost too much!

You know I will, Davie! I just found an inflo on Lampang Symphony yesterday too. Things are pretty dull right now, but they should start getting exciting in another month. September will probably be the best month for flowers.

That is neat! You have the high octane there I was in Ft Myers a couple weeks ago going to talk to a old guy that runs a hydroponics shop to get some octane enough of this with the right chemical you make a seedling flower in one year going to cost you but to me its worth it rather than these things hanging out for years waiting.

LOL, Brittany! I don't think it's me or what I'm doing! It is that magic fairy dust that all Thai cultivars have, I guess!

Thanks, Dana. I don't know of any chemical that will make a seedling flower sooner. I know some people have experimented with Gibberellic acid for more branching, but if I remember correctly, it also produced lanky branching.

Clare, 12-14 new tips are a lot for one branch! Fantasia has unique colorful stripes on its petals. I wonder if this characteristic can be carried to its offsprings.

Hi Kukiat! It must be that magic fairy dust that you have over there in Thailand! I can't wait for Fantasia to bloom. I've never seen another cultivar like it. If I get seeds from her, I'll send them back to you to you can see what her offspring bears.

I had a seedling that that I planted early last year that I had gotten from NBarry. It bloomed the first year, however, there isn't a hint of an inflow this year.
