Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Plumeria Rubra in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Plumeria Rubra after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This is my FAVORITE plant. She does go dormant in the winter and ends up looking suspiciously like a chicken foot sticking out of the soil (pictured) but when she’s on she’s ON.
I have struggled with spider mites on her for over a year now, but when she blooms it’s all worth it. I can only imagine the smell is equivalent to what a Greek goddess’ smells like and the scent lingers during the heavy, humid summer nights. She grows quick and is communicative (the leaves droop as soon as she’s thirsty).
10/10 recommend if you want your house to truly feel like a tropical oasis
