Too Early To Start Topping?

  1. Hi Guys growing chemdawg in coco + perlite mix she is very small but already starting her 5th node. Is it too early to top?

    I plan on putting her in a SCROG later on she is now small and compact with nodes very close to each other but I know chemdawg stays small then all of a sudden explodes.

    Added a lighter for scale

    Also not sure if I should go for the top or fim

  2. There appears to be a bit of yellowing but still healthy strong growth. If you think the plant is healthy and on track then yes top it, otherwise just give it a while. Worst case scenario you end up with an uneven scrog.
  3. Yeah, rule of thumb ive been told by other cultivators, is to wait until there are 3 nodes at least. Looks to me you have 3, but i could be mistaken what i think a node is? im here to learn too!

  4. 5 nodes or u will slow down the recover rate
  5. No you're good and it's time. pinch that top tiny branch.

    Take a look at these pics, same stage, before and after. ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1438841220.180305.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1438841271.587462.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1438841310.908797.jpg
