If you are unsure if these are female or male plants, I personally would not waste time topping it until you are sure it is female. Even fem seeds can turn out male (doesn’t happen much unless you stress them) and no sense in wasting time on a plant you do not want. Get a look at the flowers first before topping. You can put the plant into flowering and look at the flowers, if they are female then they are worth saving. If you are topping are you really doing LST? Low Stress Training (LST) is done by bending and tying the branches, not cutting them.

That being said, if you are really going to top the plant (as in Mainlining) best to use the 5-6 nodes and cut back one node. Hope this helps Jerry

Look at You-Tube for some great clips on what to do. Explains LST and several other methods of training your plants. Jerry
