plumeria branching

I have several plumerias with inflos on them, but it seems that each is only developing one branch at the new inflo site. any tricks to getting more branches than that?

Not that I know of. I have plants that will develop three new branches at the inflo site on one branch, and only one on another branch. Seems like the plant is in control on that score.

To some degree it depends on the plumeria variety. It also depends upon the overall vigor of the plant and growing conditions. Plants growing vigorously under ideal conditions will develop more branches upon flowering and can often flower on shorter branches. At least this has been my observation.

Unless you have an 'Aztec Gold'. LOL! That one just wants to be a moose.... at least for me!

As Dave said, variety matters. my best brancher is my Royal Hawaiian- too many to count. Heavy flowerers are heavy branchers.

tdogdad, I've seen Royal Hawaiian listed as an AKA for Plastic Pink. Is that what you have? I'm curious because I have a Plastic Pink, but much smaller. It would be awesome if mine would branch as much as yours.

I have seen that too and I have both and my plastic pink is not as orange in the center as my RH and does not branch like it. I don't really know about this but the two flowers and plants are slightly different.
