Good day growers im a master photo and auto grower.but my passion is with autoflower seeds.i been on a mission for 5 years growing now trying diffrent methods of training on autos to see what they truly behold.truth is autos aint no diffrent to a normal plant other than they flower on there own.u can top lst supercrop and defol autos with monster results if done at the correct time.oviously every plant is diffrent so always use the seed info as a rough guide;) and a short plant can yield just as much as a tall plant;) in this thread i will show u all along the way of the true limits of autos and there true potential as i grow them for u all to see;).also if ur an auto grower who likes to push the limits,do speak up and all pics of ur autos and talk and all questions welcome on pushing the auto limits.here a few examples of the results achived topping an auto young followed by later lst.few heavy defols along the way ,gives u an army of dominant colas and a big heavy yield.and a beautiful plant.here is automazar topped and lstd;)

Beautiful plants bud, and it proves just how strong todays autos are!! I have a few questions. Do you find an obvious added time to the total flowering cycle using topping and also defoliation? How many nodes or at what age are you topping? What do you think of topping vs fimming?
I am still blown away that these are mini versions of my trained outdoor photo plants. :D

912 thanks mate,iv never fimmed an auto dont see the point. and topping dont add time on mate if done at the correct time. I top at the 4th node very young between day 14 and 20 of life.then let grow and later lst as u wish.i defol anytime after 3 weeks of age if plant is healthy and strong if needed and defol as and when i want.with no ill effect and no stalling in growth.as u see i topped and lstd think big and she was done early at 12 weeks.i say give it a go mate see what u think.but lst gives me a bigger yield for sure;) happy growing;)
