Question: How do I pinch flowers

Answer: Pinching is done to promote branching and help the plant to grow denser. Usually it is done when the plant is quite young. Break off the growing tip using your thumb and index finger. The growth is soft enough to be literally pinched off with your fingers. I hope this answers your question.
