When is the best time for topping my plant's

Hallo out there😊.

I’m just wondering when or how old the plant should be before I begin topping? At this point the plant’s are 21 day’s old! Tanks😊

Thank you very much :blush:

Okay…thanks😊. The plastic is only there because my grow room, at this time, isn’t suitable for pot’s with holes in them. Wooden floor and water is a bad combo😣

Oh be careful not to overwater should put pans under to catch runoff though would be better for soil don’t want root rot bro just a thought

I put a layer of river rock in bottom of pot 1 to 2 inches. Makes it like I have elevated pots and the never hold water
