Hello @hltrskltr ! I would definitely wait one more week. I usually fim at around 5th node. Happy growing ! :facepunch:

I’m a big fan of FIMing. Have fun with that. But I agree you should wait, she’s still just a baby. :smiley:

Hi @hltrskltr! Well, I like to FIM my autos, but with photosynthesis strains I rather enjoy building a manifold (mainlining method). This is less risky than FIM because you almost can't miss a topping cut (+ bending stems) whereas you can easily miss a FIM cut (weird/asymmetrical new growth or long recovery...). Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date, and happy growing :facepunch:

You can FIM whenever you like, only auto strains have a precise moment for it to be done. I prefer to do it after the 5th to 8th node, depending on how much space you need to fill
