Frangipani seeds have two more chromosomes than humans, this means that if you grow from seed you may be fortunate enough to produce a new variety. There are never any guarantees as to what you may get. I have grown seedlings for years and am also amazed as to how quick they grow. I have 1000's of Frangipani's that I have grown from cuttings and they are so slow to grow as compared with frangipani seeds.
With seeds it takes way longer for flowering as compared to cuttings but the exciting chance of possibly gaining a new variety is every collectors dream. Frangipani cuttings normally flower in the first flowering season whereas frangipani seedlings will vary and take well over 2 years plus to produce their blooms.
It is sad to see so many fraudulent frangipani images attached to sellers listings on Ebay and elsewhere. I also see true images and sometimes wonder if the seeds actually came from images displayed. I just think buyers need to be more discerning and have given some ideas on my Ebay listings as to what you need to look for when buying your frangipani products. I see so many buyers buying from these questionable sellers and just feel so sad that this industry is being exploited.
