Thank you sir!
When I started that grow and most of the way through it, I was self employed and working from home so I was able spend time babying them and documenting everything. Then I went to work for a company and as you can see toward the end of the grow journal I wasn’t posting nearly as much because I didn’t have time.
I think the key to transplanting is getting the plant out along with all the soil around the root ball all intact. The plant doesn’t know its in another pot as long as the roots are still covered in the same soil its been growing in. Just my opinion.
I topped them in week three after giving them a few days of being in the bigger pots after transplanting. I think one was topped after the 5th node and the other after the 6th. Within a week I had two tops growing instead of one.
There were several journals going with autos being topped at the time, so I just followed suit. This was my first grow and maybe I just got lucky, but who knows. But I do know it worked for me and I will repeat the transplanting and topping on this grow as well, and hopefully get the same or better results this time around.
