To top or not to top autoflowers

Hey what’s going on? I have read a lot and seen so many videos and they all contradict each other lol! Is it a good idea/safe to top auto flowers?

I accidentally topped the one on the left and got about 25% more yield than the one on the right planted same time.

You absolutely can top autoflowers, I top all of mine. Some strains respond better than others and you have to know when to do it with an auto. I highly suggest going to The AutoFlower Network and poking around, that site is a wealth of information.

What strain are those?

I am growing 6 autos right now and im doing LST on 5 and I topped one, which was the runt of group. It’s been a few days since I topped mine and I’m blown away with how well it has reacted to it. Can’t wait to see the yield it brings!

Thank you! I’m so scared to over-do or under-do anything. The only thing I’ve successfully grown before was mold! I don’t usually have a green thumb.

Lol damn mold!! I’ll look at it more As being cautious lol I’m the same way! I can watch a video with step-by-step instructions and still feel hesitant! The two on the right are blueberry 🫐 auto and the one on the left is Bruce banner auto.The tall one in the back I don’t know what strain it is I do know that it is a photo, I cloned it from a awesome plant I grew from a bag of dro I came across

I’ve topped others before but that was in my beginning grows and pests did them in.As far as the topping they were doing awesome then the bugs came :rage:
