Originally from Uncle Ben's Topping Technique to get 2 or 4 main colas: Uncle Ben's Topping Technique to Get 2 or 4 Main Colas
I have 6 clones that all have alternating nodes. I read the answer you gave above and was wondering if you could clarify a bit? I understand I will net get the 2 or 4 cola thing going on. My guess is that a combination of 1 or more of the 'new highest' branches would be the main(s) cola(s)? Does that make sense? Is that right?Originally Posted by uncle ben
If I don't make any sense don't worry about it. I'm going to try it either way, just wondered what I should be looking for.
I included a pic (original by uncle ben, edited by me).
Is this what my plant might look like after topping? My guess is that 1 or more of the 4 stems I highlighted will become the 'trunk' or 'trunks'?
There's also a pic of where I am planning on cutting the girls (above the 2nd node).
And thanks for the link to that card trick site, really cool. http://www.adobecards.com/
Topping a plant with alternating nodes will not reliably get you more than one main cola. Try it and see. Hoo nose, you might like the result.
ah, yes, goooooood
did i FIM right? 2days later

Dont thank me REP me
I am 2 weeks into my very first grow. I've tried to search for this answer to no avail.
Every one of my 6 clones has alternating nodes. Every single time there is a fan leaf anywhere there is a new branch growing out of the same place from the stalk (like normal I assume). Likewise every single time there is a new branch, there is a fan leaf.
Except on one plant there is one place a new branch is growing out of the main stalk with no fan leaf growing out below and up against it.
Is this another top? Is it nothing but a sign I pay too much attention to my plants?
And the real question is, should I top this plant like I was planning too, and if so where in regards to the rogue branch?
man this and your other thread has helped me alot with understanding topping thanks man
