    Default Toping my babies

    Hi guys, i have active on here asking questions about methods recently some of you may remember. I just want some advice on topping i have been watching videos on youtube and there are different ways people do it. Some people pinch them off other cut them off? I just don't know what to do?
    I am 2 weeks into veg now and its maybe on it's 3rd node nearly 4th. Also as mentioned previous i want to scrogg too.
    My current setup is 1x 600w HPS with 6 pots when should i add my 2nd 600w? My space is 240x120x160.

    Hi mate. There is plenty of info throughout the forum for you to read up on topping, fimming, LST, scrogging. Plus many more training techniques.
    Start by reading this guide. I found this really helpful.

    My vote would be to tie it down. No stress and very effective. Wish I hadn't topped any of my plants.

    I just pull it off mate, was really hesitant on my first attempt but now nearly harvesting my 3rd grow and the key is to just get in about it, the way I think about it now is if you were out walking and you take a bit of a plant you don't think twice about it but if you go back after say a week you notice it's totally fine. They are hardy as f***k mate. Happy growing

    Hi mate 2 lights wasn’t worth it for me,energy bill rocketed. I had 4 plants in a tent with 2 lights. Did just as well the previous time with 1 light.
    Having said that Plants love room mate, 2 lights are definitely more effective in a larger tent. I had a 1.2x1.2x2.0, 2 lights was a waste.
    2 is perfect in ur tent!

    Good luck with ya grow
