yup.. cut right above a node like ur taking a cutting (clone) or just pinch off half or a lil more of the growshoot and you are good to go.. after a few days of shock the plant will concentrate growth on the next 2 shoots...

On your next grow you can try LST (Low Stress Training) this will keep the plant bushy and low. I have also noticed if you are using fluro lights instead of putting the lights on the top, to but them on both sides of the plant, this will help reduce the height and make it grow bushy, not sure what kind of lighting your using...

Here is the information I found on LST, it has step by step pics and info, there is alot you can cut out, What I've done is copy and pasted the important info to a word document and printed it out, that way I dont have any uncessary chat postings and can always go back to reference the material. You can see pictures of before LST and after LST, as for fluros on the side, here is what my set up looks like in my crawl space which is only 4 feet high...
