I am sooo sad that my Sunkist seems to have black-tip. This is Penang Peach to the right of the trunk of the Sunkist. The sunkist is already five feet high, tri-branched. Here are what two of the tips look like. Every onther plumie I have is showing signs of life. Should I cut it back? Shoud I wait? I'm so bummed.

Sad to say it is so, Jay, :( and if it's any consolation, the only plumeria here that blacktipped this winter as also Sunkist...
I have had no problems with it in the past, so this is definitely odd.....
Go ahead and cut it back, it will otherwise just always remain an ugly tip. You could always try and root or graft the tipless branches.
