what does the term 'pinching out' mean?

is it just snipping the top of the stem?



It could be snipping off the top of the stem, but I normally just use finger & thumb nails and pinch off the top pair of leaves on the stem. It makes the plant bushier as it stimulates the side buds on the stem to grow.
