Hi

I have a torch that is a bit tall for my liking.  I would love it to be about an inch shorter as it would fit my scape better.  Am i able to cut the skeleton so that it's shorter or is this likely to upset it?

It it's likely to do any harm i will leave it.  Just a thought...

Cheers

That's fine. Just not too close to any heads, and be careful not to damage the fleshy bits.

Thanks:

on average the heads on mine are an inch from the main stalk in a Y so i'd say if you leave a good inch or two on the main stalk?
