    If it's a seedling, you top at the 6th node, leaving the highest 4 for main stalks and taking the bottom 2 nodes for clones / trimming.

    Clones can be topped as soon as they are transplanted to medium.

    regards.

    Ya man I agree with those guys I have topped plants when there were 4 nodes but found that I had to keep toppin and pinchin to get enough banches for a decent yeild. Wait untill there are at least 6 nodes so that you have somthin to work with.

    I'm trying the 3rd node tip topping shown by the youtube master grower Komagrows

    For the most part the sex is genetics with a bit of environment, but most of that is going to come about in the form of hermaphrodites and not gender swapping.

    Topping the seedling won't cause it to hermie or turn a female into a male so you need not worry there

    If I want a plant with multiple main top colas I top at the very first possibility of doing so and so repeat as necessary.

    Topping at 6 or 7 node branch pairs doesn't make sense to me as the resultant branching morphology has diminished branching below the topping point and above that point the results are far inferior compared to the way I do it in respect of yield.

    Topping kinda half way up doesn't work for me but I'm open to hearing from folk who do think they gain by this method?
