@Autobeast thanks for putting all of this incredibly valuable information in a thread that we can all learn from - really appreciate it.

Does it make a difference in the timeline for topping, etc based on whether the plant is indoors in a grow tent or an outdoor grow?
Thankyou.as long as ur plant is happy healthy and strong.indoor or outdoor should take it well.hope this helps.happy growing every1;)

Yo autobeast! You're a big source of inspiration bcoz after reading the whole plot in this topic, I gained SO MUCH knowledge about autos
That said I already topped my Northern Lights auto from fastbuds at day 18 and it looks like I got that right timing
I added some pics to share with you my succes!
This time I chopped above the 4th node and I reckon that the next time I have to chop a smaller piece to have even better results!
My thoughts about it are that the smaller the piece you chop the less you stress the plant.
Otherwise why fimming causes less stress than topping?
Do you guys start counting days at seed emergence, or at first sign of true leaves? Just want to make sure and nail the 15-20 day mark. I read quite a bit and didn’t see the answer.
Also do you guys count they very bottom branch (not the cotyledons) as part of the 4 nodes.
Thanks a ton. Great job by all pushing the auto limits.
cheers

Personally I count from the first set of true leaves
As regards this, I have a question.
I usually count day 1 as soon as the seedling poops out the soil.
I know you said that you're counting day 1 from the true set of leaves, but watching some of your diaries your day 1 is even earlier than mine, as you count it from the moment you put your bean in the soil.
At least that's what I've understood
So, my question is about when to start counting day one in order to catch that 14-21 day window for topping?
Thank you very much 4 all autobeast! You're a legend
