    I been cutting off my rootball so I can use a smaller pot with a bigger plant. soon as she gets tall and wide I cut off the rootball and down pot her into a smaller size. down to flowering in jello shot cups now for the win. only one fungus gnat at a time can fit in the cup and thrips cant hide now.

    RootBall Removal for the win!!!

    It's possible in theory, because the plant may sense that it's being eaten by bugs and put out extra bug defense, meaning resin. CBG and THCA induce cell apoptosis in insects (death) and resin also acts as sticky traps. Apparently plants can take about 25% defoliation with no ill effects but more than that reduces growth, so something to keep in mind.

    BTW the branching that you see from topping is a defense against a worm which bores into hemp stems and kills the plant above that point. It's the natural version of topping. Increases yield by about 20% over a straight up plant. It thinks "worms are eating my stem, better put out more stems and grow faster to counter them" I guess.

    Topping works because of apical dominance not worms. Growth tips at the top of the plant produce auxins that retard growth of everything below it. It's why lateral buds will always be smaller. Doesn't matter how many leaves you cut off or how much light penetration you have, it's controlled by the hormones in the plant.

    No it's totally because of the worms. Do other plants produce 20% more when topped? Nope. Otherwise every cultivated plant would be topped. You gotta buy yourself a weed worm from Worms R Us.

    Oh, you mean because it was so well known before I posted it? And because people like their leaves also being eaten? I think it's pretty obvious who the noob is here.

    Yeah I know. That's why you should have been able to figure out that my suggestion to get a worm was a joke. But I guess that would require a brain. I simple explained a possible reason for how the response evolved. Obviously just topping has the same effect. Now go buy that worm, and stick it in your ear. Maybe it will control your brain like an alien parasite and make you more intelligent.
