Trim stem question

On a bud like this on the picture? Would I cut in two or keep the stems and one piece?

Newbie question. Not sure on how much cut stems. I had some good buds that I cut too much and they split. How much stem is ok to keep?

If I can see stem between the buds, I remove the buds.

2 small buds might look good. I big bud with a hole in it looks suspicious…I would ask myself : why did the grower took part of the bud off… just thinking out loud here… :nerd_face:

My way of combating stem removal is simple. I place my left hand on the stem and branches and just pull them off in one go. Imagine taking a chain in your hand and slowly pull the links out of said hand. That is my process. This will also help compact the buds together.
