This last year i have started several plumeria cuttings with success but now I would like to try planting seeds. Where online can I buy seeds? ebay is the only one I have heard of but is there any other online nurseries that sells them?
TIA

Hiway,
Thanks for the web addy, that is a great site.

Kasie, You're right, I did recheck that one and they do have seeds and good deals,-sorry and Thanks.

Hotdiggety,
I have started cuttings and just wanted to try my hand at plumeria seeds for something new. I know it will be a long time before I get flowers from seedlings but that is ok.

Sultry,

I have several trees in dormancy with unripeded seed pods. I'll give you seeds from any of the named or unnamed trees except the seeds from Princess Victoria. Those I have to sell. Send me a PM. I'm in Lake Charles. Seed pods usually start opening in early summer.

SJN- Be careful of seeds because they often do not look like the parent. The large number of genes give rise to many variations in size. shape, smell, and color. Whites and yellows tend to be the most common seedlings. Reds and rainbows tend to have better potential. In other words you may buy an exotic seed and get a boring, little pink/white flower.
Steve- I believe the Princess Victoria is a Metari Pink that has a color break caused by a virus. The virus is carried by the cutting but I do not believe it would be in the seed. Not sure of this but some biologist would know. Bill

Thompson & Morgan sells Plumeria seeds under the name Frangipani. They sell 6 seeds for 4.95. This is where I got my one and only Plumie. I'm no professional, so only one seed germinated. It's been a slow process- the plant is only 7.5" high, after almost a year. It will be a while before it's close to blooming, but somehow that doesn't bother me- growing plants from seed is therapeutic.
Good luck with your endeavors!!!

Looking online at Florida Colors and very curious about the varied price range for seeds. I am new to this but feel like I've learned a lot from these forums. As Bill says, the flowers grown from seeds often do not resemble the parents, why pay even $5.00 for several seeds that are a crap shoot when you can buy a cutting and know what you will get?

I want to grow seeds, I am just starting and began with mature plants which have already sprouted inflos, but I want to nurse one from a seed. I guess I am wondering if there is any benefit to going onto a website, looking at the pictures and then perhaps paying more than $.89 for a seed that can look like anything. Can anyone add some insight? This addiction is taking over!
