Directions state to "pinch out" the top set of leaves every six inches of growth. What does it mean to "pinch out"?

Just what it says ... use your fingernails and pinch through the stem to remove the leaves.

Do this right above the leaves you will keep.

If your nails are too short, you can also use small pruners.
