I was told by more than a few folks that I should (or may want to) trim off the very top new growth from my plants, which are currently about 12-15 inches tall. The theory behind this being that the plant will "bush out" and produce more (albeit smaller) buds as opposed to a single giant cola.


Should I be running for the scissors?


Also, how do I know when my plants are mature and I can begin cloning and reducing the light cycle to 12 hours to start budding?


And finally, where the h*ll do I modify my user profile so I can include a footer and other spam? :rolleyes:

Well its each to their own with topping. If you want a bushier plant by all means cut the main growing top off and let the lower branches take the energy. Instead of just cutting it off try leaving it till its 2-5" tall so you can clone it. This will give you the best chance for a mum for later use :rolleyes:


Alternatively you could wait for the lower branches to grow to 2-5" and clone them instead and keep the main cola. Can clone a plant from as young as 5 internodes and 7" tall then leave it to reveg the lowest 2 nodes and the clone then flower either.

Hey fishee,

the leave on any plant drive the plant through photosysnthesis.Removing leaves, especially fan leaves will force the plant to develop it's smaller lateral arms and shoots, hence a bushier plant.However, hydro particularly hybrid produce stuff all leaves during their life time.Thus, trimming your plant will give a diminshed benefit and will just slow the growth of your plant down.
