Top or not top

  1. Well these girls seem to be heavy on the indica side 80% and staying short so far I am thinking topping won't really be necessary but if I am going to top I should do it soon any opinions on the matter would help I have plenty of space including headroom these are 3 weeks since sprout IMG_20221009_144239039.jpg IMG_20221009_144245502.jpg IMG_20221009_144314842_HDR.jpg
     
  2. I'd definitely top them.

  3. see whats going on here is you are using a Mh light thats uses 6500k approx., colored lighting
    the color of the light shapes the plant
    you want short squat plants with close internodes then continue growing
    but about this time, to use the 2700k HID the color(red) encourages the internodes to widen
    and grow pine tree shape, as it is, squat plants tho low and great to grow in a shoebox get more mold
    due to the lack of air in and around the plant leaves, once you got the right shape and on about the 3rd or 4th lateral then yeah trim away
    unless you like whirly-whirly roots I'd stick to standard round plastic,
    watching close

    good luck

    ps that bulb does look like the conversion lenses of the 1970s great value today but low Lu (30K lumen?)
