If you're using MiracleGro, once a month is good; with granular fertilizers about every 6 weeks is more advisable. There's little to no point in fertilizing before April or after September when plumeria are dormant.
On top of everything, should you fertilize plumerias?
Plumerias benefit from consistent fertilizing all summer long, about once per week. Fertilizing styles always vary person to person and even plant to plant. Applying a soil fertilizer may be enough to meet fertilizer requirements for plumeria plants in your care.
Anyhow, what do you feed plumeria? Feed your plumeria plant with an application of a water-soluble, high-phosphorous fertilizer every other week during the spring and summer. Apply the fertilizer application according to the directions on the product label for best results. Cease fertilization in the fall and winter, when your plumeria is dormant.
More than that, are coffee grounds good for Plumeria?
Coffee grounds are said to be acidifying, and Plumeria prefer a soil on the more acidic side, so that might be why you've been told that. ... Organic, fresh, coffee grounds do have a small nitrogen content too.
Why my plumeria is not blooming?
Pests can also attribute to non-blooming in plants. If the fertilizer is not the right type, and is not applied at the right time, it can affect blooming. Fertilize your Plumeria plants during the spring and summer. Another reason a Frangipani will not flower is that the stems are not old enough.

Q: What is the minimum temperature for plumerias? A: A frost at 35 degrees can seriously damage tips, and one hour at 32 degrees or below can kill a plant.

Plumeria plants will grow tall and leggy over time, so it's best to prune them regularly to keep them looking their best (and to encourage tons of flowers!). Pruning your potted plumeria helps to keep it small, and maintain a compact, fuller shape.
Often grown in the garden as an ornamental shrub or small tree, plumeria plants need to be grown in well-draining soil that is slightly acidic. They also need at least six hours of full sun.
While dormant, plumeria do not need to be watered at all except if you live in a dry winter climate then plumeria will need a quick water ( watering the plant very fast on surface of soil not regular water) once every two weeks.

Not enough water or too much water.
