Top or Not? Please opine

This is one of my young plants, 3 weeks. She’s an aggressive grower – upward. She has plenty of light, good water, proper RH and temp, etc.

Should I top her to get her to bush out some? How far down on the main cola should I cut? Please chime in @MDBuds @DollarBill @Daddy1971

@GrnyGrows If it is an auto, I wouldn’t. Maybe bend the top over or tie it down and you should get a nice spread. Good luck and enjoy.

Would not top she most likely will not have enough recovery time. LST training will work better on her to keep her down and get more even lighting.

Cool bean - I’m on it. She was tied already, but I went a little radical on her LST.

The one I posted above is my part of my second grow. My first grow of three are doing great, even though I set them back 2 weeks by not getting them in soil quickly enough. Let root stick out of pods too long. I have these all tied back to get some bushing but I’m in full blow flower. This pic is from about four days ago. Remember, I’m a super newbie – doing lots of learning. Let me get two grows down and we can compete. :rofl:

be careful here if she is ( may be a he ) cranking out that type of growth with lots of space between nodes that could be an early sign for you to pay attention to. Just a thought

It’s not perfect, but I’m happy. I haven’t killed them yet. :upside_down_face:

To pay attention to what? Light, pH, RH, temp are all good. I don’t overwater her. There isn’t as much space between nodes as it looks like.

@GrnyGrows topping an auto this late will just stunt it. You’re doing fine just how you have it now. Good looking grow.

I’ve got two running. The first three and then their cousins. I have everything well labeled, numbered, dated – the whole shebang. I’m loving it. I’m going to see these through and try to avoid growing July, Aug and early Sept. Too dang hot.
