I don’t too autos. Topping looks to me to be about 2 day recovery time before the new tops start growing again. Not time I can get back with an auto. Training getting that even canopy is the way to go.Just to chime in on the auto topping discussion from earlier….you can also just LST the plant and get similar results. Here is the same plant before and after training….

My take on topping is that it's best used on the smaller plants would normally have one big cola as a main part of the structure.. You can imagine the production increase with topping structured plants like that in a sea of green set up. That's where I'd top a plant.If you've not grown a plant before though, is there a way to tell that it will be Christmas tree shaped, or is it just a case of watching and if the top is rocketing up, nip it off?
