My First Time Topping PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

  1. Hey guys I need to know when I can start to top my girls. Here's the most recent pic of each of them. They are 19 days from the first one sprouting from the cubes.

    I really want to start as early as possible but because I'm an absolute beginner I don't know whether or not they can handle it yet? Should I wait some still?

    Any comments and suggestions would be awesome!!

    Also when am I ok to start LST? I'd like to tie them or bend them or something but are they to small still?

    How many days off am I from really being able to start manipulating safely without causing to much stress or stunting growth for to long?

    Thanks guys!!

  2. You could top now. Bury up those stems. Fill with medium right unto the bottom set of leaves. You got a bit of stretch goin on there.

    Wait another week or two before any LST. Their stems are still kinda fragile.
  3. Thanks guys I topped 3 of the hydro plants sucessfully and can see 2 little nodes at all 3 topping sites so I am confident the little guys should bounce back in the next few days. I'll wait a week or two and top again I think.

    Unfortunatly for my soil plant I smoked a big bowl right before I topped her.....I did which I would like to refer to as my plant. It's called (fuck I super toppped) my plant and took off the entire main top. Left in the foil is the stem, the 2 small seed leaf things, the second 2 undeveloped leaves and 2 sets of new growth. I took off 2 growing tops when I did this and this plant was much 1 week younger then the hydro plants. Hopefully it lives. I'm sure it will bounce back but I may have stunted it some.
