I received two 10 inches NIkko Blue. Base part (about 3 inches are straight up), other 7inches grow almost horizontally. They are not "wooden" at all. Should I stake them? Or, just cut them short? And, what is the best time to cut them? My zone 8b is quite warm, 91 this afternoon.

I would not cut anything yet. Staking sounds good.

It probably won't bloom if you cut it now. I'd stake it see if it flowers.
