Plumerias

Zone Virginia Beach,VA | Robsbabegrl added on May 21, 2016 | Answered

I have a plumeria, which I bought in Hawaii back in January. I have it in a pot in my home. It just began to bloom this month; however, it flowers and then in a day or 2 the flower drops off. What is going on? I live in Virginia.

    I suspect that your plumeria does not have enough humidity. These plants like a high humidity environment and will shed flowers much more quickly if they do not get the humidity that they need. You may want to look at trying to put the plant on a pebble tray to bring up the humidity around it. Here is more information on that:
