I’ve topped plants before but never really seen any benefit in it or maybe I’m doing it wrong
I usually top, sometimes FIM. It helps manage the plant’s height, overall growth, and I get a lot of good flowers. I don’t get one big main cola, but I do get multiple good medium sized flowers off of one plant.
Yeah, you don’t get monsters like that without topping/fimming.
Yeah, and for 4 hours after the curing is done, you can’t do anything!!
Here’s one of my current girls in flower (4 weeks in.) She’s been trained quite a bit too and will produce some nice, large flowers.
And do you do it to every Cola
I normally SCROG my plants and do a FIM (which about 50% of the time ends up being a top lol) and I top side branches once. If you overdo it you can produce a canopy the roots can’t support well which causes ‘issues’.
That plant was in Promix HP for 4 1/2 months and delivered 14+ oz of gucci flower.
I usually top 2 to 3 times in veg. Above the 4th node on the first cut and above the 3rd nodes on subsequent cuts. Be sure to leave a good bit of nub above the node where you top. The extra “stump” will help the plant develop a more solid knuckle where you have topped.
I’ve just topped and now have 4 solid stems. I’ve used the top as a cutting which is going strong. I usually supercrop rather than top so be interesting to see how it goes. I can see a definite slow down after I topped but they’re recovering now and looking good
I super crop, top and fim.
Supercrop everything as part of veg to control canopy height. Every plant.
I top 90% of all plants, yes sometimes autos as well. Ive had good results but its a tight window with autos.
Fiming i do mostly for fun. It can produce some weird shit. Sometimes it will cause cola explosions and get killer results.
Meh…I could go either way. It depends on how it’s naturally growing. If its growing out bushy I don’t but if it’s growing straight up I don’t, to get it to bush.
Lol if it grows straight up I DO lol I tried to edit but it was too late
Do you top/fim this once or multiple times? T
This depends on how big the plant is going to get and the pot size. You can’t have a big plant in a small pot: lots of issues result.
