  1. its all in the tittle yo. :)

    could i top my plants before i lst? ....or is that just pointless?
  2. Why?
    The main point of LSTing to cause them low stress. Although some growers top (the main cola) a week or so before flowering.
  3. John, do you know why topping may be done before flowering? Is it to produce 2 smaller colas rather than 1?
  4. I believe so.
    I think the main cola would out grow the smaller one's during the first 3 or so weeks of flowering.
    Don't quote me on that, that's just a thought.
  5. I tried the topping a week before flwering with some clones i had last summer and it's POINTLESS... i ended up with two little nugs on the top instead of a long main cola....

    if you are topping your plant let it Grow for a couple weeks before flowering or you'll get a couple small nugs.......actually now that i think about it, they looked like a pair of BALLS, hairy BALLS...........haha...
  6. well i just tried both on two. wll shall see what happens.

    thanks guys
