Q.When I Prune My Hibiscus Am I Cutting 1/3 Off of My Main Branches?
I’ve been doing some homework but still have some questions. I know (now) that a NODE is the eye where the leaf is. Am I cutting 1/3 off of my main branches even if there are still leaves at the top?

You can. It all depends on how you want to shape the plant. Cutting the main stems will result in a more compact, fuller canopy on the plant. Cutting only the smaller stems will result in a looser, airier looking canopy.
