Pulling center of new flower

A buddy tells me that if you pluck the leaf or leaves from.the center of a new flower starting that you will get 2 flower growing instead of one.
This is my cherrywine hemp cross.
My marijyanna plant still growing.
Any truth or insight on this info?
Firat time planter/grower…medical purpose grow.

You need smarter buddies and/or read about topping and fimming here on ILGM… In fact, read ALL the guides here on ILGM if you want to really learn to grow.

Your buddy is referring to “topping” and that happens during the vegetative period.
Once your plant is in flower, you should NOT top… ESPECIALLY the flowers.

You do this long before pistils form. It’s called TOPPING or FIMMING.

For the record though… You did the correct thing in coming here and seeking confirmation of the “tip” you received before mangling your plant and drastically reducing your production.

Myself I top my plants about 2 weeks before switching to 12/12 and it gives it time to get the new tops a good start before flower. And welcome these guys are great and have helped me a lot with my first grow

after you top,you could slowly bend the lower stems horizontal and double your bud harvest.
