Topping is a method I use in conjunction with the SCROG method i mentioned in my last post. This method is where you snip off the top most new growth that causes the plant to distribute its hormones to other branches creating 2-4 “tops” or the biggest fattest buds at the top of the plant. This creates a very flat top to your greenery allowing more light absorption and in most cases more and stronger bud!
Here is a great link over to rollitup.org where they explain how to do this technique.
In addition here is a video for those of you who are more visual learners
