A successful topped auto flower. This one is a 3 Bears OG by Mephisto. If topping, do it early and don’t do anything else abnormal! Success will also depend to some degree of cultivar, as with so many other dependencies. Still dealing with prohibition in Alabama…
Your humble servant,
Interesting. Do you feel that you gained anything by topping it? If that was a plant that wasn’t topped then that’s a 3 node plant with a main cola.
I Love Mephisto and 3BOG especially. I’ve had 3 cycles with Mephisto but have only leaf tucked and defoliated. What day/node did you top?
I topped somewhere around day 15-18.
@kenshabby, I wouldn’t top an auto flower after day 21 because you don’t want it in flower when you doit because that will definitely stunt it. My personal opinion for what it’s worth would be to top if deciding it’s worth the risk at around day 14 but it also depends on how fast the strain is so if it’s a 60 day strain then around day 14 if it’s an 80 day strain then you might be ok to top all the way to day 30 or so but definitely don’t top after the signs of flower start.
It’s this warm weather that you were able to get a plant all the way To fruition already? Nice. Doing my first autos right now. I know nothing about autos. Hopefully they look as happy as yours
I’m in the Deep South, so I can do three sets of outdoor autos each summer in the same holes. With this first cycle, 21 day-old transplants were put into the ground on 4-1-21. 3BOG takes 78 or 79 total days. (Yes, I also said “transplant”.)
I topped my 3BOG and had great luck. Got about 70 grams out of it.
I actually don’t think this auto gets enough cred. I wish some more would try it to see if it’s “just me”! Ha
Just got some of the above 3BOG ready for the Dynavap. This stuff is RANK!
