    For this single stem plant should I pinch the center out now? Wait longer?

    Ron, When I got the plant it came with the name of Elian. Here is a pic of a colored up one.

    I was going to pinch it today, but noticed it is now starting to branch out along the stem. Must not wanted to be pinched.
