Topping or Fimming

I have been working with Hellraiser and Eagle009 for some help. Anyways this is around 3 weeks from when I started it. Would like to know if I should start Fimming. I have no idea how to top. So please anyone out there please help me to make a decision here.

I always top. Strangely it’s easier than fimming. But I’d wait a bit before doing either and let it grow a few more nodes

I always top too. Above the 4th or 5th node. I only count 3 finger leaves (or more) as the 1st node. Yours isn’t ready yet imho.


Ok I am really new to this and I don’t want to mess it up. I did take the 2 bottom first leaves off of it I hope that didn’t hurt it but I see there were a little bunch of new growth coming along good. So I will leave it alone for now. It’s about 3 weeks since it got its first true leaves.

So I am trying to learn the counting on the counting of nodes. If you can give me some idea what to look for please do.

Ok so you are counting from above the first coteyydolen sorry misspelled. I say I see 4 nodes already if not please tell me.

Maybe my illustration wasn’t so great. I’m counting from the first set of true leaves with multiple fingers.

I wouldn’t be in a hurry to top it. You gain nothing by topping early.

Ok yeah it’s only going into 3 weeks of the seedling stage. I just transferred it in a 1 gallon fabric Pot.

Ok I am trying to learn the nodes and would you say that it’s at 3 nodes maybe going on 4
