bobtheblob started grow question 3 years ago
The question is wasn't it too early to top her and if it was, how will it affect her? and is there any reason to wait for more nodes before topping except keeping veg period shorter (she recovers faster when shes bigger) ?

She looks good. The main reason to top when the plant is a bit bigger is as you already said, to make sure it can recover faster. Topping when the plant is smaller will just add some extra time to the recovery vs if you waited to top. There really aren't any other negative side effects of early topping as far as I am aware of. I usually wait until node 5 or 6 has formed and then ill top down to the 3rd node.
