This GDP is also a strong grower

It added 10-12" from 3/9 to 3/21. This photo is taken one day after super cropping the main stem
The blue tape is barely visible on the back wall

Post a photo of your GDP from the side. How many nodes tall?

8 nodes from soil to top of plant. I wish i could post a pic but in illinois the plants cant be visible to the public. God i hate that. Illinois just hates common sense i guess. Id be afraid to lose my medical grow priveledges. Do u think mine should be topped? Also should i scrog already?

I’m in a totally illegal state. If it is as crazy a grower as it appears I would top and probably also scrog. Topping it might allow the other plants to catch up a bit.
This GDP is on day 28
