There was this old thread. I had posted pictures of my Plumeria that I grew from seed and last year I had to move out of that garden and start a new one again. Some of you might have followed my thread in the Prayers forum last year and also my blog that is going on here at DG. I've posted what all transformation took place here.

I did not want to leave my plumerias. I brought the cuttings and after some months of neglect [busy], 3 of them were planted. Two varieties. I planted one in the cement bag not knowing where to put the extra. Now this is showing buds. Not even a month of putting the cutting in soil. I planted the two varieties so close that they would grow side by side - just one foot separates them.

The one in the yellow bag is having buds. Note the difference in size and distance between the two in the ground.

Sure, they are the same as in that linked thread. I'm glad it is growing. When I visited my friend last evening, he had a lovely purple one that he collected from some tree. It was brilliant! I went there for something else and so I had no camera with me.

At least now when it does have flowers you can enjoy them more when the plants so high you can hardly see the flowers. I would have had to have come how with a cutting of the purple never mind the picture lol

After a year now... this is how it is.
More leaves. I've put the two one foot apart.

Ah, at last! The garden is looking good Dinu! It looks like everything has recovered from the move.

The garden has settled now and the plumy has grown to the height of the compound wall, going up for more light.

Here is a new view of the yard.

Two years since I last posted the picture of the plant above, I return to post that both of them seem to be doing well, the smaller one remains small and seems to be going slow but the other one is nice and tall, have gone above the compound wall. A bunch of flowers is here as I post this. The above picture of me there in my yard will have a different look as the yard is undergoing a reshape - the new house has come up in the space you see there in the b/g there. Shorter and smaller garden. The plumeria is on the back of the person who took my picture, some 30 feet away, beyond the pond.

Dinu, good to see you posting here again! We grow many of the same plants, but I enjoy the differences in critters, life styles , and cultures. Don't be such a stranger!

Ha ha, OCCAROL! I have only two of them to share. I see a couple of colourful plumerias near my house - old trees - and I feel like plucking a branch away and growing here. I'll get them one day after asking the owner as I have now known that they can be grown in some small container also. We sit under the huge plumeria tree every day outside our office canteen. Many of us prefer outdoors as we can avoid noise from lots of people talking at the same time and it echoes! Here in our country, it is like that - people usually talk in such a way that they do not bother about their surroundings... even loud laughing. But for us under the tree, it is more peaceful. This is in bloom now. Since I don't carry a camera or even a mobile I cannot share a shot of that tree. Let me see if I have one in my archive. I had taken one. Remind me. I'll dig and take it up.

10b zone is similar and so we are likely to have similar vegetation, even if we are half way round the world.

The climate zones may be similar, but they only deal with the cold hardiness of plants. They don't tell you anything about the heat, the humidity, or the rain fall (or when it rains). We get very little rain (a little over 8" for the year, so far), and all of our rains are during the cold months, which seem to be over.

Carol, many thanks for this interesting insight to me about the climate zone. I had not earlier thought about it in even this much detail! Now I have got the gist of it. I have dug the photo successfully. The tree must be about 50 years old [wild guess]. Can you think of its age? We sit under it on the cement platform you see there. We also do not go into the shed where there are tables and chairs also. This is outside the canteen hall next to it. During blooming season, the flowers keep falling all around every now and then. My friend takes a very thin stick that is also fallen and pierces it into many fallen flowers and makes a garland... all in 10-15 minutes after tea/coffee while we chat and go back to our workplace. I have to dig again for that photo - had taken when my pocket Sony camera was working.

Back to the Plumerias in my yard. Can you see it there? That dark area is the shed I built yesterday. Only roof and pole. This is just beside the Plumeria plants. One has grown taller than the wall. The smaller one is sending out a branch almost horizontally, as if a person is stretching the arm asking something. That is where more light is. The tree above it won't allow it to grow branches on to our side.

This is a very interesting thread. I am glad that you have posted pictures of the progress and growth of your plants over a number of years. I also enjoy hearing about you and your co-workers sitting outside the canteen under that beautiful tree with the blooms falling around you. It does sound very peaceful.
