My one plumeria that has just started growing has had its tip chewed off by a squirrel. I am just wondering if the plant will grow a new leaf tips? I am not sure if the plant will still be ok or not. Any suggestions would be great!

Welcome! bedfordry. Oh yeah they will, most of the time you will get 2 to 3 branches. Good luck!

Thank You! I live in Ontario, Canada and I was wondering approx. how long it would take to regrow? I have brought it back indoors in a south facing window.

You certainly won't see blooms this year Crying but as Gigi said, you will have multiple tips forming.
