You can top autos without having any problems usually....but since you mentioned already stressing them out , and now they're in an outdoor environment the traditional xmas tree style handles natural sunlight very good without having to top. Just let them get as much light as possible and they should do well without any training.
Good luck with these wild outdoor women. :grin:
