Hey everyone i havent posted in a while... ive missed yall. About a year ago, i found alink on this forum to blog of some guy who experimented with topping... i think he was trying ot see how many times he could top a plant. Ive tried searching many times and i havent found that journal. Can anyone help?

Im thinking about doing a combination of LST and Topping for a veg period of four months... I cannot let the plants get too tall, so teh bushier the better. I think instead of getting nutes or ferts im going to get some grade A compost soil and mix it with some natural topsoil and vermiculite with small layer of gravel on the bottom and top. anyways, thanx for the help

Check out the sticky thread "Fimming and Topping" in Absoulte Beginners.

I think you can top a plant twice.. never done it, only top once myself.

I have a clone that was topped twice to make 4 main colas, and 2 of the side branches caught up and are keeping up. Theoretically, you can top as many times as you can handle... That being said, in 4 months I'd bet you can top it as many as 12-15 times, maybe more. I am not recommending this with a plant from seed, as it's a lot of stress. But you could do it if you have enough time and growspace. Also remember that it will take a longer time to flower a bigger girl, so take that into consideration too. Best of luck.
