Anytime now will do for topping or you could just LST the whole way. Spiraling the main stem around the pot for a nice even canopy:+1::skin-tone-3:

Personally i wouldn't stress autos with FIM or topping, i'd recommend a good lst. If u want to try, as Athos said, top the 5th node. You can follow grow developments and if you reach the 5th in 14-15 days u can give a try.

Hi @granddaddyg! I usually wait until the 3rd or 4th node has fully developed. But anyway I won't recommend to do it on this baby, she's not looking healthy, TOPping such a young and unhealthy plant would take ages to recover, she might even not recover at all. So first, try to find the issue(s) in your environment and refine it asap. My guess is that wrong pH, high relative humidity and a permanently-wet soil lead to this sad looking and unhealthy baby (curly leaves, slight yellowing / loss of greenness). Also, stop spraying anything unless it's really necessary (to kill pests or to give nutrients to over-watered plants). When you need to spray something, do it at night when the light turns off, otherwise you might burn the leaves. Try to stick to a 6.2 pH level and a ~50% relative humidity. Hope this helps, I'll be around, keep us up-to-date so we can help you adjusting your parameters, and happy growing!

You should top your plant after 21 full days from seeds depending on your growth,and plant health every plant is different alot of people top early i dont personnaly i find they recover alot faster when they are a lil mature people say 3rd 4th 5th node it depends on your plant you doing a low stress auto i wouldnt mess with her too much she will piss u off with a low yield keep it light on the nutes if u stress her out she will slow down BLACKBERRY is FIYA SMOKE just dont stress her to much and u should be good

There is not a "correct" time to top a plant, you can do it whenever you like after the first pair of leaves has grown out. I'm currently growing a strain at day8-9 and then topped it again later, and it's looking to be really good so far.
Notice: you should read up on your strain, some strains take training very bad, and some take it very well!

For autos I would focus solely on low stress training however if you are keen on trying to top it I would topon the fourth node. If you wait any longer then the fourth node you will start to see weird growth. This is because flowering starts on autos around the fourth or fifth node development. Hope this helps, good luck on your grow!

Autos should be topped (or FIM'ed) above the 4th node, removing the 5th node. Why? because autos begin flowering once the 5th pair of leaves is fully deployed, TOP any later and they will start flowering and it will be too late.
In my current run I FIM'ed a pair of autos, I invite you to take a look how it went.

The first one was FIM'ed on day 11, the other on day 14, depending on when they reached the 5th pair of leaves.
