Bud on 3

A lot of my OP Bonica seeds germinated, and now I have a good number of seedlings. Some of them are about 2/3" high, and they have a tiny bud forming. As the plants are still small (I should have counted the number of leaves…) should I pinch this bud? Or is a small plant capable of supporting a flower?

I don’t want my seedlings to spend all their energy in one flower and end up dead. But I do want to see what the flower looks/smells like of course!

Thanks!

If those were mine, I’d probably pinch out the first bud.

Thank you Joan, I’ll pinch them then. What would be the average height for a seedling to allow it to flower? Is 2/3 inch really small for a first bud, or is this normal?

Thanks again,

Rob
