Early Vegetative Pruning
tops come off, there's a window of opportunity to get
those second-story branches to reach up to the top floor
and stay there. After I've got the four main tops at the
same level (more or less) and the plant is throwing
growth shoots on those top branches, I'll FIM those new
shoots at the top. This creates a thick canopy of bud
sites at the top, and the secondary bud sites are close
to the top as well. I use this method for plants that
will finish flowering at about two & one-half feet.
Anything shorter, like in a clone, quick turnaround
garden, the FIMing should happen straight away. FIM it
early (fourth or fifth leaf set) to keep it short. These
seedlings were topped at the fourth node (leaf set), and
FIM'd later to gain height.

This is the result of all that pruning and
Each of those tops will be a nice, tight
Northern Lights bud.
