    This is my first time growing plants to mum up. I've been following the old-timer's guide, but the pics are confusing me a little.

    In the three pics that show the initial topping, the plant has around 9 shoots, and looks to be in a 4" pot.

    But in the pic that follows, the left-most plant looks like it's topped in a 2" pot.

    I just posted a couple pics in another thread, and it was suggested that it was time to transplant them. So I'm not sure if I should transplant them, and the mum them up when they get bigger, or keep them in the 2" pots until I top.

    Also, it states, "The top 2 will grow the fastest and when they get to about 5 inches pinch or snip out their growing tips to just above a leaf node. This will allow the second pair to catch up in a day or so, then pinch them out as well. This will encourage side shoots to form, any that grow into the central cup shaped space pinch out."
    Is he just talking about fimming here?

    The thread is really old, but there were enough pics, and posts, to figure it out.
