How do I pinch off my salvia to make it bushier?
    #11336809 - 10/28/09 09:56 AM (8 years, 23 days ago)

Hey, I wasn't too sure how to pinch it off, so I took a few pics.


I got this one a few weeks ago, do you think it's too early to pinch it? And how would I go when it's time to do it? Just twist the top two tiny leaves off with my fingers?

Thanks.

I would still wait a while before you top it.  Basically if you cut off or pinch off the meristematic tissue from the dominant tip (in your case, the only tip), new side branches will form.  I'd do it once you have at least two more sets of leaves on there, though.

ok, thanks. I have another question. Why are the leaves curling on the sides? I had this happen with my other plant and I have no idea what is causing this. I tried increasing light, reducing light, misting water, not misting water, increasing humidity, lowering humidity, checking soil for problems, etc. Everything seems fine but it's still not happy.

It's Salvia, bleh.

Beautiful and amazing plant, but not the easiest around.

They're so picky with conditions sometimes.

I read to only top it after at least 6 good nodes have formed.

I got sick one my salvias attitude and now come home drunk and beat it senseless on a regular basis. Its attitude seems to have improved somewhat. Just throw your punches to the midsection M'kay!!

How many Salvia leaves would one need in order to produce a decent extract?

No idea but the leaves themselves are pretty potent. I remember smoking a ~15cm long dried leaf made into 3 or 4 bowls and getting some nice pre-breakthrough effects.. I guess a few more bowls and I would have been gone into salvia world.

I find it really shitty that these plants are so hard to grow... it's such an amazing plant and I'd love to have a healthy one growing here. I tried everything for the 3 ones I have here and they are never happy :frown:, but I still don't want to give up..

Depends on your tolerance mostly, but I'd prefer 10 leaves minimum to make a decent extract. Some people, however, can do just fine on significantly less or even plain leaf. Your best bet is to start small and see what works for you since salvia seems to affect people so differently compared to other drugs.

But for the op: your plant is too young to pinch. Let it grow a few more inches at least and get some more growth. You'd slow your plant a lot pinching it now.

You must have made a lot of environmental changes to that plant in a short period of time if you've messed around with its lighting, humidity, and different misting styles so much already.  What's the temperature in their growing space?  I wouldn't really worry too much about its leaves curling a little or browning at the tips/edges of leaves - it's a sign of stress but they will still usually do fine.

Around 19C at night and 22-30C during day. I didn't do the changes quickly, it was over a few days/week
