I just gave my plant her second topping and I ended up cutting off both growth shoots….am I screwed, or will it recover properly. The strain is Strawberry Cough from Dutch Seeds. See before and after pics below.

@spookydave I had to screen shot & zoom in your photo but it looks like it should be ok and recover. It’s unbelievable how resilient these plants are .

It will be just fine, you will get four tops.


You'll be doing this every time soon.

Looks like it should be fine brother 😎

I have a couple questions 🤔

How old is this plant?

Is it an auto? What’s the deets 😜

are you trying to grow small?

I usually wait till after node 4 ( not including the first single leaves ) to do the first top and then if I second top, I wait till those branches have at least 3 nodes and I make sure I have plenty of space to pinch or cut it off. 

I have had it where I went too soon and ended up fimming the top. Some people like that but I do not. Makes my top messy 🤷‍♂️

keep up the good work brother! Love your plants 😎
