    when you top or pinch your plant your colas will not be as big.. but you will have more buds. i personaly like the big long colas.

    can u pinch the main cola to make it football sized ?

    if the plant is topped the canopy stays a little more even, providing more light to all the buds, if a plant is not topped, you need atleast a 600 watt lightif not 1000, the top cola may be 24 inches long then add 10 inches for the light. The lower buds will be hurting.

    Its a matter of preference.

    The more you FIM or top, the more branches you will have and thus more budsites. This forces you to have to veg longer and more branches shade itself more, and its more work to harvest and manage and takes up more room.

    tricky question need more info. do you have lots of room. growing in or out doors, cfl or hid? some strains grow bushy like christmas tree shape.

    i have a good amount of space so i top and go bushy. also dont prune much.but thats just me.:leaf:
