    My plants are 3 weeks old. I want to top them now and two weeks from
    Now then send them into flowering and do some lst. Is there a particular node I should top too? Or just take of the top wherever it's at now

    Flip due to being limited on time

    Got a question though. I'm short on width but good on vertical height in my room. I'm actually thinking about topping them a few times and letting multiple colas grow vertical and not usuing lst. Would you guys recommend that for my situation?

    I don't like topping clones. They always grow asymmetric.

    Dude I strongly suggest you try "mainlining" top at 4th node and chop all the bottom nodes off then let those grow out LST them then top again or as many as u want for more tops! Good luck man!

    What happens if part of a bud gets pinched off somehow from the main top, is there any effect on growth?
    Does it stop the top bud from forming and make all the rest grow more?
    Or is there no potential benefit from this?
