OMG! What have you done? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!?!

Wait. Never mind. Looks good.

What Trips Rabbit says is true, but you only have two nodes on that plant, so you'd lose half your branches if you cut the lower growth. In the future, consider leaving 4-6 nodes after that first topping.

I ony top plants when there going to outgrow my light, that plant is very small why top? I assume that it is so little it is a photoperid plant, did you top to make it smaller bc it is going outdoors? You should have waited till it gained some size in my opinion but im really not a fan of topping or fimming unless there is a good reason for it, good luck pic is last time i topped a plant and only bc it was going to outgrow my light.

I topped it just out of curiosity. These are my first plants and i was just experimenting with different techniques.

I like to top after 4 nodes, then a couple days later remove the 2 sets of leaves and branches on bottom.
