    I would say about the 5th or 6th node.

    Yea, that would be about the earliest I would do it fo an average size plant.
    It depends on what you want in the end. I have topped sooner to make a mother plant.

    I base it on time. I top it about a week before I start flowering it.

    I've had luck by FIMming around the 3-4 week of vegging, when they're about a foot in the little pots I use.
    It's difficult to get it just right. Sometimes my trim only results in a 2-cola top and others end up with 4-5
    center colas. Yum!
