I like to cut it where the stems are thick since the stem that grows off it will be thinner. If you cut it high, you will have more bare bottoms. Make sure your pruning tools are very clean and sharp.
Thank you for your reply! I'm not entirely certain I understand specifically what you mean by nodes and when I should cut it. There were four plants in that pot, two of which are growing, the other two seem not to be doing anything. Should I leave them or somehow get them out? It may be because I tried to cut it back in hopes that it would grow, but the bark has turned brown and seems unwell.
The other ones seem to be growing and I believe there is a bud on one!
