Plumeria Progress

Back in February I planted this Hawaiian Plumeria and put its photo nearby to inspire it to its future greatness. (Also so my roommate wouldn't throw it away thinking it was dead or pornographic.)

I've been gently coaxing it to grow, watering it faithfully everyday, admiring it out loud for the beautiful flowers it will produce. As these trees alternate between having leaves, flowers and no leaves or flowers, I'm not sure what it will do first, since at the moment it is nothing but a 7-inch stem.

Over the past few weeks, there has been some greening activity and I'm very certain that by its own slow schedule, we will soon have either a flower or a leaf.

Care to wager which?

I'm saying Leaf.

Stay tuned for important updates!
