I fim to stunt the top cola branches is this bad to do? @Aqua Man @Moe.Red
No bud, FIM is fine. Lots of people do it.

Hopefully people aren't getting the wrong idea about all this just because of this thread. @Aqua Man if you think this thread is a waste of space at this point, just blast it. I'm on the fence.

I have gathered so far, it is for making multiple tops from one top? Does this method increase yield, or just split it up into smaller buds? If it only makes more smaller buds, I'm not sure I wanna try this. Sounds like trim hell. Lol

You know how when you top a plant the two branches create a crotch, a weak point that needs support? Fim doesn’t do that, it gets a bushy top in my experience.

No the goal in fimming is to hit the sweet spot in differentiating cells. At the tip, those cells dont know what they are yet...they dont know if they are going to be cells that make stem, xylem, lignin...and if you can cut at just the right spot you pass right thru all those undifferentiated cells. Too high and you have too many differentiated cells that already know what the are and are going to be, "im a branch, were all normal branches"
Too low and you just stopped auxin and it's officially topped.
Really a narrow band you gotta hit when it comes to fimming
Law of unintended consequences played out in this discussion, but you can agree to fim or top to accomplish many things. Some very articulate writing and I'm proud to be a boomer. Age means surviving and tending to our gardens brings peace to all.
