When growing autos indoors in soil, what is the best time to top them to prevent them growing too tall for your tent?

Techniques. Defoliation

Hi @JasbadSirron! I usually top autos at the 3rd node, once the 4th node has fully developed. This makes me remove a part of the plant, but recovering is faster when the lower parts has true leaves / has already developed new growth. Keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Hello ! Just like athos told you the best moment is after the 4th node (3rd or less for main-lining) . The supercroping is a better technique as the plant can recover faster from the stress than with a simple toping that will slow her down a bit & it will allow you to controle height better ! Hope it will help you :grin::+1:

After the 4th node, removing the 5th (or most of it, if you are FIMing). In my last diary I FIMed an auto. In your case, I would use supercroping if you are having height problems
