Getting ready to grow autos for the first time, so I have no input but I'm interested to hear this...

Well, I've grown ~3-4 of them out...and I don't know if you'd really have time. You'd have to top as soon as possible, or it wouldn't work. I'm not sure if the recovery time would allow for it. Seems like by the time its started its new growth, it'll already be flowering.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Grown AF's afew times.

As a matter of fact a friend is starting AK47 X Diesil AF today.

Maybe cut the 3rd set of leaves when they show up but later than that, I don't know.

Let us know what you do.

I think a better question to start with would be, "Why would i do it?"  People dont usually top or fim an autoflower plant because you need time to let the plant recuperate from that damage.  I would think that cutting the plants growth points would really harm your overall production rather than increase it.

What's the size of your grow area?
I'm thinking tieing it down maybe a better option for you at this point.

yeah, it sounds like you will be better off using a low stress technique like tying it down and just growing it parallel to the ground/lamp.

Thats what I always did. Worked very well for me :thumbup:

Each branch becomes its own cola, more or less.
