6 years

I went to Hawaii in 2002. I bought 3 plumeria plants. I killed 2 of them because I watered them too often. I have managed to keep one of them alive. I called the florist several times to inquire about how to care for the plant. I was told to water it once a month and keep in full sun ( gets too cold here). I was also told that it would take about 1 year before the plant would bloom. Each year new leaves sprout and then when the weather changes the leaves fall off. This has been happening since 2002. No blooms at all. I just figured I would have a green plumeria plant. I went on vacation last week and when I arrived home this is what I saw.....

It took my plant 6 years to bloom!!! I was most excited!!!
