I am wondering if I should trim some of these giant fan leaves for if it's to early. I did just top her last night, should I wait till she gets taller? I'm worries she is too short.

I would wait on trimming for now , there's a few different reason's as to why I would wait . The main one being the stress factor on your plan topping it alone induces a great amount of stress to the plant . So to do that in combination with trimming at this very time would be a bad idea it may even stunt the growth of your beautiful young lady ! So my main advice to you would be to wait it out a few extra weeks ensure that were you topped has healed nice and proper before going ahead with the trimming . This way it will encourage your plant to spread its energy to the internodes that have developed so you can get more tops going. Once this has established itself and you can then take away some of the big big fan leaves that are sucking up energy and blocking the lights for nothing . All in all your ladies are doing really really well and I hope this has helped you on your quest to becoming a grow master ! -Happy Growing!

The idea of defoliation is to expose lower leaves that are othewise shaded, your plant is too young for that, you will only delay it's development. You can do it if you want, I just don't think it will help at all at this point.
