I just received mine on Saturday. It's pretty small maybe 6 inches but it came already rooted. When are you suppose to start snipping the top?

That can be deadly to a plant if not done right

ive never seen anyone kill a plant by "pinching" it..

might cause weird growth..or slow growth..

but I doubt it can kill it...

did you ever killed a plant by topping it?

All i heard was snip the top, if the part you snip is the main stem, as you know its hollow, and can rot all the way down to the base of the plant. Usually nodes would keep it in check, but not every time.
Topping maybe you only cut the leaves/growing tip. That case it sould be fine.
Yes i have killed salvia plants buy cutting them back when i first got to know the plant.

im talking about chopping the top of the main stem...who produce more bushy plant...

if they died after....its because of rotting..

not because you cutted the top..

when done properly..with clean scissor/knife..everything should be fine

peace

It can look like rottting, but the stem turns black/brown and shrivels up so its more like drying out.
No actually rotting in the normal sense, yep it can be ok, thats why i said can kill.
I trick i use is to break a clean tooth pick, and stick that in the hole, that usually seals it up fine for me.
I almost forgot if you are growing it in low humidity there is less chance of the "rotting", but in domes or green houses with high, it will happen 80% of the time.
