    What I've been thinking a lot about is, does it not (seem) to make sound sense that it would be somewhat less risky if a person was to try topping a sativa dominant strain, like Amnesia Haze? My thinking here is, sativas grow taller and lankier as opposed to the indica chubbies.

    I'm wondering if anyone has had this same thought or if they know of any research done on it.

    I know this is a "contentious" issue. Anyone who want to weigh in, the opinions would be more than appreciated.

    I like where you're going with this, but I wanted to try and simplify the equation.

    Given that sativas are favored for their larger stature which in turn gives a higher yield. And given the idea of topping is to achieve a better surface area too volume ratio which produces more bud sites and bud production in-itself.

    So with all that said, at the end of the day I see your logic as sound :o

    Re: Autoflower Topping

    Dr. GreenGenes & yyc420, ya'll are great. inadvertently topped about 1/2 of my autos and not the other 1/2, sorta got blasted
    and forgot said wtf sounds like a good reason to be lazy. all are flowering and we have 5 varieties of 3 containers each so I know
    there will be some good comparisons to check, measure, sign up for health care, etc. Will get them all a family portrait, now if I can just figure how to post pics., I mean see if I can talk my old lady into to doing it since i'm such a "no tech bitch".

    Sounds great Autoflower Topping

    The ones that stunt out, seem to flower but never really stretch. They kinda just end up super short.
    One interesting side observation though, is that their buds have always laid me out, even though they only produce like 20g dry, they seem nice and high thc content. Could be incredibly anecdotal though. :/

    why I like not screwing with them too much other than topping, trimming lightly, etc.(speaking only from outdoor experience, zero
    knowledge about indoor). they sure do some funny shit, so I like to watch and wonder wtf they are up to. plants have personalities like people, sorta good deal for us.

    The growth was not delayed at all, maybe they were stunted for a day, but that's all.. they are very durable

    Re: Autoflower Topping

    Just topped my WW a little while ago to see if I can successfully get a clone going. It's a nice lush, healthy cutting, and I put a good dab of rooting powder on it and stuck it in my fish compost etc. mixture with lots of perlite for good aeration. I put a tinfoil "curtain" around it, not completely though, to let her catch her breath for a few days. Hmmmm, after seeing the picture, I see that it's put in kind of slanted, but anyway...

    Any suggestions as to how I can optimize my chances with it?

    Tooth pick beside main stem then try to wrap it around with pipe cleaner to keep it straight it might help?

    Just give her a few days before you touch her again. Less stress equals less stunted growth.

    Too late. She's in the great compost bin in the sky; the pearly pots. No biggie, I guess. I'll cut some surplus stems from my WW when they grow bigger and try again. Gotta go; EARLY day for work tomorrow and the wife's sleeping pill is hitting me hard ahhaha. Rather have a puff. Good night, all.
