Hola Jean-Jacques,I have the above vine growing here in southern Spain.It is growing up the tennis court fence so is quite big but it has never flowered despite being 3 years old.Have you any thoughts on why there are no flowers?Also,do you sell plumeria seeds?The other seeds I bought from you are all growing well.As always,I love your informative and interesting articles.Regards, Val Fuller

Hola Val
I never have grown this vine as it grows wild here so I do not know how long it takes from seeds to flowers...it should not be fussy regarding soil as it does well in ravines and fallows where soil is stony, maybe it does not like the sound of tennis balls;)) I do sale Plumeria seeds but I am out of them now, will let you know as soon as I harvest some.
All the best
