Hi, I am wondering why some people grow to node 6 and top down to node 3? Seems a waste of growing time? I let plant grow to node 3, or more if I away and then just pinch out the top when its just big enough to get hold of... I assume its not always to take cuttings and have not heard that the plant needs the grow time to make whatever the hormones are it needs to do whatever magic they do...

Cheers

You will probably get more than one answer to this question but here’s my reasoning. I generally let the plant grow to 5 nodes and then top at the third node. This timing seems to work well to allow the root system to develop well before the topping and the plant responds to recover faster from the topping. Eventually you will learn what works best for your growing style.

@monkeydo exactly. everyone has his/her own style and experience. No 2 gardens are the same (different genetics, substrat, lights, humidity, vibe, energy...)

I usually wait for the 6 node.
