      What Sonnyhad said. You can top it if there are 5 sets. I topped mine with only 4 sets of leaves and they did great! You just cut back to about halfway so like Sonnyhad said, the 3rd set would be perfect.

        Jeff, did you tie it down with something where you bent it? If you do pinch the top, the other colas will start to form faster.

          Yes, I did bend it, I read in you topic top it before LST, but I thought I would try LST first and see how it works out, thanks for the info

            If it's an auto and you have already bent her 90degrees, why top her ?? Imo gonna slow her down at least a week or two.more

                If you have an auto, then I would only top it once, but what you do with it from there is endless, well not quite but you get the idea.
