How to Cut Back Your Plant

How to Cut Back Your Plant

CARE INSTRUCTIONS


This type of pruning is not always needed, but it’s recommended if you want to avoid your plant looking leggy and to achieve a bushier, fuller plant.

The goal is to remove about 1/3 of a branch, and focus on branches that looks leggy and woody. You can remove even more if you think it’s needed.


THIS IS HOW YOU DO A CUT BACK:

  1. Use a clean pair of scissors

  2. Measure from the top of a branch, and remove 1/3 of it

  3. Make the cut just over a node of leaves

  4. Repeat on all branches that look leggy or woody
