6 plants in a 4x4 is plenty.
1 top is sufficient imo
just let it grow for 3-4 days and take another photo,
probably you'll be ready to flip in a week.

weeks 2 to 4 of flower make sure to visit groom every day to keep scrogging
days 14-21 would be ideal for lollipopping, remove all bottom growth, bottom third can be removed without a concern..

good luck man
The bottom branches have powered up to the top, so I still remove them later ?

Hope I haven’t taken too much off . Anyone know why they haven’t grown much vertically ?
Maybe now I’m trimmed they will ?

as mentioned in your other thread you just need to chill and let them grow.... you've just topped them which spreads the growth from one main/apex shoot to 4-6 shoots - so yes each shoot will grow less than the single shoot that you removed - but they should all grow more or less evenly

Just let your plants grow for another two weeks and then consider tying down the tallest shoots to even out your canopy - in about 3-4 weeks you can actually start with your scrog...

Also - you're still not sure which ones are female, right? I would LST until you determine sex before using the net - you're gonna have to rearrange everything once you know how many females you have...

How can you determine male or female without flipping to flower?

they're called pre-flowers and they show up some time after week 6 of veg - google image search cannabis preflowers and you'll see loads of examples...

Just had a look I see what you mean . Had a look at the plants and can’t see anything yet. So you reckon couple more weeks they should show ?. I always thought you flipped then they would appear

initially they are very hard to spot without some kind of magnification...

I would definitely veg longer and wait for pre-flowers - otherwise you won't be getting the most of your space...

It looks good. Let them grow a bit now.
The side pics are the best for seeing their growth.
Where is your light? Raise it 4 inches.

It looks fine
Is that your first grow mate?
If so, I'd just flower right now and let nature work it out.

Scrog, etc, are somewhat advanced techniques, you'd rather complete some easy grows before locking up your plants inside a net.

To measure QUANTUM BOARDS light intensity in a cheap way, grab a LUX meter off amazon for $20.
You could start the flowering phase at 400 lux which is aprox 600 ppfd, and increase to 500 lux (750 ppfd aprox) after 14-21 days of flower.

it's only been a few days... it's important to just took at overall growth and not just height... you've definitely filled things out quite a bit - the height will come
