It depends on so many different factors.

How, depends on he shape the button has taken. Big clusters generally need to be slowly separated and cut off with a sanitised blade. Removing stock on a trich is relatively easy, compared to removing from an established lw graft on pere. 

As to when,

- Why did you graft in the first place? Seeds? Pups?

- Is the stock old/ no longer putting out desire growth. 

- Has the button begun taking a form you don't like?

If I had a big single head lw graft I would degraft, yet mine are all massive clusters and imo there would be no point degrafting,

I have tried to root graft pups of LW with limited success (different root system) I would leave it alone and let it go.
