Should I prune her in the next few days? I want to keep her low by pruning and training. Is she too young for pruning?

for topping you do want to wait until 5 nodes are evident, your VPD wasnt optimal so topping this short plant now will stunt it forever, if you want to train it and keep it in veg, what you do is you prune any leafs that gets 5 leaf tips - this will keep your plant in veg for up to 8 weeks, and therefore you can train it anywhich way you want to . Hope this helps ! :rocket:

You can top most autos very successfully. As did I with my sour orange, it was maybe a week older than yours. Don't think about cutting any leaves off though until much, much older when she can handle the loss. Hope I help!

@greatagainagain Hi mate when you say pruning do you mean leaf removal or topping?
It's not a good idea to remove any of the fan leaves at this stage as they are providing the energy the plants need to grow. However you can remove the top node and it will make your plant bushier and create more two tops instead of one Heres a link for you to read
I hope I answered your question to your satisfaction Happy growing
