    I always scrog and always top them. I tried training a full cola once and it worked well but not worth the hassle imo when you have to bend and weave the rest of the plant anyway

    Yep, same here.
    Done it both ways, and topping it you get a much more even screen, if you don't top, the main cola can dominate too easily

    when ya top, take the bit that u cut off and treat it as a clone, i tried it and got a massive bud on my first time. i reckon cos it has nothin else to consentrate on but the main bud.
    U guys ever tried that?

    Of course. As long as its of a standard cutting sort of size, if you're just pinching out it won't be possible, lol. But if you wait long enough for a few nodes above where you wanna top then yeah. Perfectly viable cut

    Now are you confusing pinching the growing tip to actually cutting a few inches from the top of the plant, which is 2 different things, i think yes ? do many cut of a few inches instead of pinching out, i thought about this if your growing tall sativas, any feedback

    if you pinch the top few inches from the top you can use that as a clone and also make your plant bushier
