Q. Why Isn’t My Frangipani Flowering

I have a Frangipani bush that is about 3 years old. It flowered beautifully the first year, but the past two years it hasn’t. Instead, it’s just grown enormous.

It sounds like it may have too much nitrogen. When a plant has too much nitrogen, it will grow lush and large but will get few flowers. If you are using fertilizer on it right now, cut back. Also add some phosphorous to the soil to help balance the nitrogen and phosphorous. Phosphorous will help get the plant blooming again.

I would stake the plant for now, to help ensure it does not suffer damage or break.
If you are going to transplant it to another part of the garden you will need to do some planning.
You will want to do some root pruning this season to move next season.
By taking a sharp shovel you can sever the large roots around the plant. This will then encourage the Plumeria to start to grow smaller roots in the area that will be moved.

Q. THE BENEFIT OF SPRAYING THE LEAVES OF A FRANGIPANI WHEN WEATHER IS 40 DEG.

On my balcony facing north, I have a frangipani in a large pot doing extremely well but suffered in yesterday’s heat. It had been well watered in the morning but the leaves had bent down by late afternoon yesterday. It faces nth west so the sun was on the plant quite a while from the west. I plan to put umbrella over this later today. My question is it O.K. to spray the leaves with water to help cool the plant or is that detrimental? thank you
