their is a clean cut. When this happens the plant sends hormones and signals to
the plant saying it needs to find a way to continue its vertical pursuit. So, where the plant would have started to grow side shoots in a week or so, now becomes the two dominant main stems.
FIM is an acryonym for "Fuck, I missed!" It is referring to topping. It's said to have come from someone trying to top a plant, after "screwing up" the topping technique the grower decided to leave it and see what happens. The plant will do exactly what topping it does, but in addition this time, the part of the stem that was cut will sort of mutate and continue it's growth with sometimes more than three new stems. This means that from one FIM you possibly get four or five new stems.

oh... ok... you just clip enough to encourage the 2 new tops but still leaving enough to grow the original one as well... thats pretty much what i did to mine... didn't know that was fimming.
hahaha.. So from you experience you could kind of relate to where the name "FIM" came from then ay?
