From a fellow grower: I wanted to ask a question on the Girl Scout cookies from my first order, these are about eight weeks old.
Maybe I over pruned them or prune them at the wrong time, I see they have begun to start to flower right after I pruned them.
But now no new leaves seem to grow, is this because it’s flowering and it’s using all the energy for flowers instead of new leaves?
Any leaves that existed have begun to die and fall off. But the flowers seem to be continuing to grow, just curious if this is normal for flowering season.
Will the leaves grow back once flowering is over?
How do I know when to cut off the flowers, in other words when do I know they’ve grown enough?
