From what I have seen on this site and elsewhere it seems like people remove a lot of plant material, sometimes almost half the plant, when topping. Wouldn't it have the same effect to just remove the growing tip and leave as much as possible?

Is it just me that can't see the pictures for the pruning guide ? It says to update your photobucket account for third party hosting.

It's not just you. Photobucket recently pulled the rug out from many people who'd been relying on it for years.

Lots of THP users relied on Photobucket, and its hit this site quite hard.

Hello, I read the whole thread and I'm still unsure of the benefits of topping. Is it only done to get a more compact plant with the same amount of fruits, or it actually gives better productions than just leaving the plants grow tall?

Also, does it really make production happen earlier?

 

Thank you.
