Topping while in clone machine

I was wondering if anyone out there has experimented with topping the little ones while they are still in the clone machine.

Sure, I’ve done it, but I wouldnt recommended doing it until the root system is established in a medium to minimize stress

What do they say wait till at least 12 inches tall or at the 5th node ( fro clones 3-4 node, depends on the clone - feed after topping and do 1st thing when the lights come on in morning use a good root/clone stimulator
