What's really good guys! 

I'm on my 3 auto run and have decided to top this time, I've topped and trained photos before but never autos. Im wondering if it's a good idea too top and then train or just top and leave it. 

I have 4 plants in a 90cmx90cm tent (2x do so dos, 2x Colorado cookies) it's been 16 days since I wet the seed and now have 3 healthy plants and one stunted planted which I won't train. The plants have just grown their 4th nodes and am planning to top after work today.

Will upload some photos tonight, and will get a dairy going soon. Cheers!

Rich or poor, a sunny day a sunny day.

@woolieback morning woolie, yeah I normally bend my autos over then train the side branches out, always been happy with the yeilds but they can become a bitch to train in to an even canopy. 

Do you train/ tie down branches after topping? And is 16 days an alright age to top? Cheers

@straight_coco oh have to buddy they are small generally so spreading them out really helps ,noticed although an inferior breeder(FB) was used lack of consistency with autos or possibly myself 🤣  that ruderalis gene man , that said my first run of Dutch passion were awesome,  one has finished the other not yet but they both look similar in apearance and that's what I been looking for in a auto

If I do autos...which is not often...I treat same (almost) as photos...but I top at node 3 instead of 4...earlier the better, gives them maximum chance to recover from their decapitaion Smile

@zn morning pal, you top at node 3 so there's 3 nodes left or two?

As soon as node 3 has grown out enough to get a decent top with a little left, so 3 still

@straight_coco when you see real flowers, not just the stray pistil here and there, it’s time for pk.

I always top autos and as ZN said, earlier is better on autos.

Random acts of kindness make the world a better place

Alright I topped 2 of 4 plants, one plant wasn't lagging behind so I left her and one plant i just trained. 

16 days from wetting the seed the plants had 4 nodes so I topped just above the 4th node( I know you guys said 3 but I was worried about cutting to much) in the future I will top earlier, fingers crossed I wasn't too late in topping. Its been 3 days since topping and they haven't shown any signs of slowing down and still look super healthy.

Thanks for the replies I will add some pics when I get  home. Fist Bump
