topping before flower?

  1. i switched my lights like 4 days ago to 12/12 and my mutant trifoliate still isnt showing sex although my nirvana blue mystic and other unknown indoor mix seed both have little buds already, so i got stoned and topped the mutant in like six places cause anywhere i topped it before resulted in it branching off in three so im hoping for three buds everywhere i topped it do u think it was too late to top it? im using a 250watts hps and its a scrog in soil with foxfarms nutes
  2. Bump for a reply simpler question can you top the plant when its in 12/12 if it hasnt shown signs of sex yet? any reply would be appreciated
  3. Let me start by saying that I'm only a beginner, but with my last grow I topped/fimmed the plant about a week before switching to 12/12. On my next go I will do it a lot earlier or let it veg longer after topping.. what i have now on the top instead of a nice large cola, but 3 smaller ones.. Not sure if this is going to end in my favor when i weigh up what I harvested, but I think topping so soon before switching to 12/12 gave them no time to mature those new growth shoots.
  4. it was pretty much experimental and since i have two confirmed females i wont worry too much i just hope it doesnt stress it too much and it turns hermie or male
  5. HIGH All, hey Burnt...yes it's best to do it in veg first for it time to grow a bit. As for stressing your it should be ok.
  6. good news all the ones i have left are females 3 out of 4 aint bad if i say so myself
