Can you top too much?

How many times do you guys typically top a plant? I’m trying to maximize the the width of my plant by topping and bending the new growth under my netting, but I don’t wanna overdo this and stress my plant out to the point where it may herm on me. This is the first time I’ve attempted this many slices on one plant. I think I’ve topped about 5-6 times now. I never take more than two at a time and I’ve been giving her a week in-between each one. Is there such a thing as too much?

Lets see a pic of the plant… i usually only top once then train out.




Are you trying to train the whole width of the tub area?

You gotta remember when you flip, she could triple in size, then youll have a lot of work to do.

That is my plan yes. Only had one seed germinate outta five and by the time I got more seeds Large Marge here was already getting big. Typically I top 3 times max, so I’m a little out of my comfort zone messing with her this much. I’m probably overthinking it, but I wanted to get some advice before I continue or go too far and she herms on me. I’ve only had one other plant herm on me from stress and it’s an experience I would like to avoid going forward.

Ive already monstercropped

Im over my head myself. Id snip some clones and go… im still stretching…


I usually top my plants 3 times before flipping them with a 10 to 12 week veg time. The topping generally occurs at weeks 4, 6, and 8.

@MidwestGuy she hasn’t even been in my table 30 days yet. Those pics were from yesterday. She’s a fat happy girl and I wanna keep her that way. I think I’m gonna take some clones Wednesday, and start flower sometime near Halloween.
