I have a runtz and wedding cake in a 4x4 I'm going to try to achieve 200 tops between them both
Kind of a cool thing to try. Could I ask what the reasoning is behind your goal? Trying to achieve certain yield goals or just want to see if you can do it?

I just saw it's a 4x4 tent, that trellis looks odd, how big are the squares? In a 4x4 if I have a SoG where I can optimize the canopy to the max I wouldn't go past 49 tops in a 7x7 grid of clones. With a scrog I doubt you will even achieve that.

One thing to remember, the more buds you have on a plant, the smaller the buds will be. So given the same strain/clone, pot size and veg time and so forth, the plant that has too many bud sites will have smaller buds than the plant with fewer bud sites. So there is a balance for any strain. On the extreme ends, too little and you are lighting the floor, too much and it's so overcrowded that light can't penetrate more than a few inches and air movement is nil causing bud rot.

I agree that’s a crazy amount of tops to try to flower indoor.

and the small Bud thing is very true. My last grow I manifolded my plants. 4 colas each. Nice large buds and easy trimming. I think I’ll be sticking to it

I counted roughly 86 tops and that’s with the two phenos on the left side of the tent that have a much slower growth rate.
Two weeks after flip there will easily be 100+ tops here...

So if they were all like pheno 3 at the bottom right who’s much more vigorous then I’d say this 4x4 could easily support 130-150 tops2ECEDA37-7BA2-41CE-9554-2F8165B91263.jpeg
