should I top at this point?

Yea I know I wanted to go indica but I saw the sweet Island skunk flowers and switches last moment. I do have an indica enemy of the state growing In the veg tent that I would love to cross with the skunk

I’d go 10 weeks if it’s sativa. Indica tends to triocome faster and you can get away with 8 or nine weeks of flower but them sativas like to be slow and rewarding. If it’s an auto flower on the other hand I’d say cut it two weeks no problem. I topped all my buds, tied them down and them topped all them bud sites and I have one plant that covers my whole four foot across closet. I’ve still got 7 or eight weeks to go till harvest.
FYI pests love and kind of fiber or yarn when you use it for training invest in some plant tie down wire i learned the hard way

You really want to wait for the tricoms to go all amber. That comes with age. Sativa's take FOREVER but are well worth the wait. That being said if you want a heavy couch lock you really should go with an indica dominant.
My sativas are at week three and a half of flower and they only look like little popcorns if that gives an idea how long sativas need to wait. I was gonna go 11 weeks of flower but these bitches are acting snooty and making me wait 14 weeks from there rate of growth. I’m thinking about adding a dose of that miracle grow feed to my tiger bloom cause it has 24% nitrogen

Yeah I learned too the hard way. lol I had to cut off that first Net because of it. The second net I used was hemp with wax coating and it’s doing pretty well.
 
Fuck no more yarn man thanks! And 30% amber thanks! I just have a feeling I'm going to wk 10... holeesheet I just don't know 100% what I'm looking for IN TOTAL when to harvest. Every site is different and this plant to me looks like it needs to harvest but some times not... idk

Tie the buds that you do have over as far as u can get the lower stem to show or high stress the middle of the branch and the stems that are underneath them will grow up as colas sites making the same size as the top maybe a little smaller. As long as the canopy is even they’ll all grow the same size. I only have three tops on my plants and the rest are lower branches that grew up from sea of greening. It really maximizes yield and the only No thanks I’ve had to do is defoliate once every other week and water the tops to compensate rain

Here’s the cut bud. Idk if I should keep it on and let it heal up n attemp a small reflower or chop it down to the flower site behind the cola branch. It’s on a dragons breath strain that I am trying out for a first time. It’s growing where looks like orange cream but taking forever to spread like that lemon and Afghan lush just does.
