    I've grow and hybridize plumeria trees. Plumeria flowers are the lei flowers. The smell amazing and come in many colors and shapes. Does anyone here have any? I also grow heliconia, gingers, ti, palms, and different foliage and vines.

    Quote:Thats awesome. You must have a spacious place. Our place is not that spacious and hubby want 4 of my big plumeria trees out. The are taking over the yard. I just hate to see them go. I love gingers, palms, and heliconias. I am terrible at caring for orchids though.

    I used to grow them back in Florida. My favs are the ones with a pink outside and a yellow center. I raised all mine from seeds.
