Stem split on autoflowers

I am very close to harvest and just wanted to know if anyone has split their stem on an auto? I have read a lot of places that say not to do it

I’m not sure what it’d hurt. It’s going to die soon anyway :smile:

I got another week, week and a half maybe. Just didn’t want it to switch sex on me

It won’t have time to. Even if it did throw a banana that quick, it would t have time to pollinate.
