I bought a 4" pot of a lovely Pseuderanthemum plant variety "Black Varnish". It is a single stalk plant that is about 12" high.Should I pinch it back to encorage side growth? Thanks, Sheila

Hi Sheila,

What I would do is only pinch back what is dead otherwise wait until the end of summer. I've had mine for about 5 years now and it seems to do best with heavy pinching at the end of summer.
