Topping question (AK-47 auto)

Hello, everyone!

Halfway through the transition phase here. I topped for the first time the other day, and I’m pretty positive that I cut too low. It appears that I’m only getting a single new shoot as opposed to two. It also appears that a couple of the under growths may be shooting up to be main colas.

I’d love to hear your thoughts and advice! Should I top again?


I wouldn’t top that plant… Most people don’t top auto plants in general…

How does the stem look close to the Coco pod?

Ah, I didn’t know that. Thank you! I’ll keep that in mind for my next grow. :slight_smile:

Here’s the stem down below:


Looks good down there I was looking to see if you had the start of damp off but you don’t.

Plant looks a bit small for its age but topping will stop growth until the plant recovers then it will grow again

@Unicron I grow autos. I topped my first two but am letting my 4 youngsters go without topping. I did a bit of lollipopping on each
