Is this when flower buds form?

Yes, on some varieties. All the varieties which usually spike early are not...and all the late bloomers have spikes. Go figure! :>)

I noticed today, my large plumeria tree in the ground has a lot of flower spikes emerging.

Then "maybe" mine will be an early bloomer????
Let's hope for next year.

Lovely Andy...Just noticed today that a couple of mine are starting to get a little sticky at the tip.....

Feed them heavy this year. This will stimulate flower buds for next year.

That's great! Let's hope this will be the year it'll bloom!

This plumeria posted above has not bloomed in 3 years. It's 7ft/2.2m tall and desperately needs to be planted in the ground.

Why is it sticky at the tip before it putting out spike???? Or am I misunderstanding something here? I have never grow Plumeria before, but since I love the beauty of it flowers, & also looking at Plumeria trees brought me back a lot of memories of my homeland, that is why I'm a little courious.

Not sure why it's sticky at the top before putting out spike.

Where is your homeland?

Vietnam is my homeland where I was born & grew up with a lot & lots of Plumeria tree grew almost every where.

It should be easy to grow plumerias in San Jose. You get lots of heat during summer. They just need to be protected in winter (especially from lots of rain, which I know San Jose doesn't too much of).

I hope it could be as easy as you said, because I'll be soon going to HD to bring 1 home for myself on my coming up birthday (July 21) yahhhhhh.

That's great! I'm sure it'll grow very well for you! :)

Yes, my Plumerias in the Bay Area would break dormancy in April. They would typically bloom from mid to late June through Nov. and very rarely into Dec. (only when the weather was very mild).
