WARM WEATHER PLANT ONLY! Mine hasn't bloomed yet, in fact it's pushing itself real hard just to get a few leaves out. I've seen them grow around here indoors, but if you don't have a strong enough grow light you're SOL. Mine's 120V. Plant says meh

It should be noted that, for a while, C-Stars Wholesale Nursery in Southern California, a major distributor of plumerias to commercial businesses and nurseries, sold the cultivar 'Cancun Pink' under the name 'Playful' but has since changed the name. This cultivar flowers easily, but the flowers have poor keeping quality. The flowers have a sweet fragrance and are about three and a half inches in diameter.
