Compact growing plumeria

I look at the plumeria others are growing and I see taller growing trees with some branches but not a thicket. Mine mostly seem to grow stocky, multibranched, not sure why, but it does make them easier to take care of. What are others' experiences with this? Maybe I don't fertilize enough. Here are samples of what mine grow like:

Climate, pot size, and/or cultivar could all be reasons. Most likely the last reason. I believe many of JJ's cultivars have short/stocky habits and they are mostly from Thailand.

If it suits how you want them to grow then why worry about it. Nice work.

From what I understand, all of JJ's are Thai varieties, which tend to stay short and branch out on maybe 3 or so inch branches. If you go to his website, he stresses that his are strictly Thai, grown in Thailand and not crossed at all with any Hawaiian or Mexican variety.

Me too!! I have JJ's California Sunset, which has a shape like yours, and I love it. But then I have a few other trees that have all their branches on one high level! I like yours better!

I love that compact growth. These are the perfect types for growing on the lanai.
Tally HO!
