    I have this question..

    Is it ok to top your plant as much as you want (obviously not over stressing it, and giving it healing time in-between toppings) until flowering time?

    I know topping, while your flowering, is not a good move, but as long as your in the vegetation stage it should be ok to top as much as you want right?

    I heard topping an un-feminized seed too much could result in hermaphridite or male charactorists such as beans and junk.

    ----anyone with experience on excessive topping with with good/bad harvest outcomes, please let me know what happened with your experience and I'm greatful on any input----

    THANKXX

    p.s. here is the one I'm in the process of doing....

    yes, you can top a plant as much as you want while in vegetative growth. you want to stop 7-10 days prior to flipping to 12/12. i top the piss out of my plants (the strains that like it).

    a plant can go hermie from being stressed via many factors, but not while it's in veg. a lot of the strains on the market are going to hermie a bit anyhow. it just seems to be the way that it is.

    awesome

    one more question that I figure you might know. Is ok to top, then wait til the next node grows and top again or do you have to wait til two full nodes grow before topping again?

    you can top a top of a top. no need to wait. again, some strains don't take to topping well.

    Both are right...Bubba stop yelling please (all caps).

    Tho it is not wise to top in flower, it can be done very early and it will take an additional week or two to finish. It could also hermie. I know this because I have tried topping in flower and/or had an accident that topped the plant. It does not increase the amount of product at all.

    " It does not increase the amount of product at all." Can also be said for topping in veg. You can make one hell of a bush tho which can be great for stealth purposes.........

    Myself, I top for height control.

    again, i beg to use proper spelling and punctuation! how can anyone take what you say seriously when it can't be deciphered?

    sure, you could top a plant in flower, but why? during the first 40% of the time in flower a plant goes through "the stretch" before spending the last 60% of it's lifetime fattening up, trying to catch pollen, it's only purpose on the planet. it takes time for the growth hormone auxin to be re-distributed to the auxiliary bud sites. if you top in flower, even during the first two weeks not only are you decreasing your yield, but like WW said, you can hermie your plant not to mention it will take longer to finish.

    i like to teach proper methods. thanks for trying to correct me though.

    dude, learn to how to spell. are you really THAT lazy? you have the internet at your fingertips and can't look up a word. if your growing skills are anything like your grasp of the english language and grammar you should find something else to do. talking shit, are you serious? i'm just telling it how it is. i never made an attack or sad anything that wasn't true (or that you didn't state first with your own post).

    wow, just after you tried to say i'm talking shit you start to diss my hobbies? and the words that I wrote about myself. and what exaclty does my state have to do with anything? and you are doing it ILLEGALLY according to the federal government (not saying i agree with their stance, but if you are gonna start to throw shit), just like i do.

    my answer to everything is not pH. but UNTIL the poster has a grasp on his/her pH than everything else is IRRELEVANT. any advice given is considered bad. because all the good advice in the world won't help you if your pH isn't inline. i've never told someone who's pH was KNOWN to be in the acceptable range that their pH was the issue. there is a reason things are done a certain way around here, or in troubleshooting in general. there are steps that MUST be followed. and those steps were put into order by EXPERIENCE, and their RELEVANCE. any doucebag can spout out, magnesium deficiency, or calcium deficiency or whatnot, but there is an UNDERLYING CAUSE to the deficiency. plants just don't up and go deficient because they are bored or want to fuck with you.

    please start a grow log to enlighten us with your masterful skills. mine are all here, just look em up. i've taken the liberty to attach a couple of pictures of one of my current ladies in flower. i put my money where my mouth is, how about you!?

    I AGGREE FUCK THEM GUYS, BUT JUST THINK IF THEY WOULD JUST GIVE UP THERE POWER HOLD ON IT HOW MUCH MONEY EVERY ONE WOULD MAKE, IF THEY WOULD LEGALIZE IT ALOT OF PPL WOULD JUST BY IT BECAUSE IT WOULD BE EASY TO GET, THAT AND AS YOU SAID A LOT OF PPL JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO GROW! JUST BECAUSE OF ALL THE THINGS THAT CAN GO WRONG,YOU SHOULD KNOW ITS WORK AND COSTLY ALL THE WAY FROM {CLONES OR SEEED}, ALL THE WAY TO THE TRIMMING, ITS FUNNY ITS LEGAL HERE BUT,ALL THESE PPL ARE GOING AND GETTING THERE CARDS AND THEY THINK YOU CAN JUST THROW THE PLANT IN DIRT AND GROW BUDS, AND KNOW EVERYONE WANTS A CAREGIVER. SO BASICALLY IF THE FEDS WOULD NOT BE SO GREEDY AND SHARE WE COULD ALL MAKE GOOD SMOKE AND MONEY. BUT WE DO HAVE A FOOT IN THE DOOR WITH THE MEDICAL, SO KNOW. THEY CANT GO BACK IT WOULD BE JUST TIKE THE PROHIBITION OF ALCOHOL!!!! HAHA FUCKERS THEY FUCKED UP KNOW ITS COMING SOME DAY IT WILL BE TAX AND DISTRIBUTED!!!:smokin:
