@Dutchlady1 or any other knowledgeable plumeria people. I have this variegated plumeria that kind of got off track last year with this off to the side tip growth. Now it is doing the same thing this year. I think I would like to cut the top off and root that along with regrowing the bottom half.

I guess the question is where should I cut? Above or below the the juncture in the second photo? This is a grafted plant with a very healthy and nice looking graft. Or should I just leave it alone?
Thanks. Michael

For the best shape, cut just below the juncture.
