Plumeria Plants
Q.

can i force bifurcate plumeria?

Zone 27410 | matulja87 added on March 30, 2016 | Answered

I have a Plumeria with two main stalks on it coming from the base stalk. One stalk is single and straight, the other stalk has trifurcated into three little stalks. Is it possible to force bifurcate the stalk with single straight? Either with string or wire across the tip. Would this harm the plant? I do not want to graft; I do not like the look of it. Thanks Michael

There is no way to 'split' or bifurcate a stalk, in any research that I have found.
Cutting into the stalk would likely result in the loss of the stem or reduce the health of the plant.

Pruning will of coarse, result in multiple branching from the prune site.
