splitting MJ tops

alright afoaf has a couple plants and he wants them to be short and shrub-like, to get as many colas as possible. when would be a good time and where on the plant should he nip the tips of his little girls so that they will produce more flowering heads? thanks

You want to wait until the plant has a few alternating nodes at least (or around a foot tall), topping won't really make a short wide plant unless you do it multiple times. All you need to do to make two main colas is cut off the very top of the plant, make a clean cut under where those small leaves are. This will set the plant back about a week but you will have two colas instead of just one. But sometimes a plant with one cola will produce just as much bud as the same plant with multiple colas. Although if you are scroging or something topping is the shit.

While some people like to be conservative with their plants - marijuana is quite resilient.  I would suggest topping your plants as soon as possible, as exhibited by this picture from UncleBen:

http://www.overgrow.com/edge/gallery.php?userid=9476&s=&action=view&in=haze_topped_3times2_7.jpg

Topping at the second node allows your main cola's stems to grow quite thick - offering improved nutrient use and generally improved yield by evening out your canopy layer for better light distrobution.  There is a genetic limit to how much any given plant can yield, so don't top too much :spliff:

You can also keep plants short by using strings to tie them down and have them grow at an angle.  Be creative, you'll be surprised what you can train plants to do :grin:

A link you should read - in addition to many articles from this GrowFAQ

If you bend the top with a bread tie so that it faces down it will have the same affect as topping and you won't loose the big cola.



Also when the time comes. If you take cuttings and put them in a mushroom chamber with constant airflow without a loss of humidity you get this.

You can take the cuttings any size you want

This was turned into this
