Yes, you are correct that you should have done a topping sooner and allowed more branches to grow out, but for a first timer you are doing great 😁, and if anything this is where you learn...through your own failures and accomplishments 👍 8 days into flower means you are still going to get a little more stretch, so you can continue to move your bud sites on your branches along your SCROG to keep them spread out and even....but by third week stretch will start to subside and bud sites will start to fatten up from that point until finish...so, you only have so much time before you finish weaving your plants in under the SCROG. Also, to help promote growth of the canopy, you might lower your SCROG a little and use this to help spread the branches a little more, and you should trim up all the leaves and larf below your trellis, as this area will not get the light needed to produce anything worthwhile once your canopy starts to fill in anyway. Help promote growth to the canopy, if you understand, but must work fast as stretch is happening now 👍😉
Im sure it’s still going to produce only hoping it’s going to be substantial 😀 and like you said , it’s all learning so nothing was wasted!😌
I guess both are supposed good producer’s so maybe I’ll be surprised? I will certainly heed your recommendations and keep trying to spread out. As far as “larf”, I’m hesitant to know how much to remove ( the plants have short node spacing so there’s a lot of available bud sites sprouting)from below my screen. I’ll hit it again this weekend and take as much off as looks necessary, I’m still a bit reserved when cutting away so much of a beautiful plant lol. I thought by 3rd week I would show some photos and see what the thoughts would be on them, and that would be my last opportunity to do any trimming. However, they are flowering now, and there’s a lot of trichomes already showing on leaf surfaces. And they are stinky! So maybe I should trim before this weekend? Here’s a not so amazing closeup, still pretty cool

I hear your concerns about trimming, but you still have weeks to go and lots of growth yet to happen...any unnecessary larf will only steal away from your canopy above the trellis and there will be still lots of growth at the top where the light is, and this far out ways larf buds from the bottom that won't give you what you are looking for. In saying that, I saw some of your bud sites just below your trellis, hence I suggest a little lowering of your trellis to incorporate those tops into your SCROG 👍 Also, look below your trellis, and if you can see that a top (bud site) on a branch can be manipulated upwards to the center and will reach the threshold of your trellis, weave it up to the center of you plant and trim the larf below....this will generate all the production to the top of your canopy and your bud sites, which will enjoy the light for a better evenly (mostly) over your canopy and produce a better product and overall yield 😉 Even if you wait until after your stretch is done and then trim, it will help the canopy developed better 👍

This is a photo of an early SCROG grow I did , which shows that after 5 days of growth you will see a quick growth to the top of my canopy, just from keeping the bottom trimmed up and the plants weaved into the trellis....I hope this helps you to understand you still have at least 6-7 weeks before you finish 👍
