I you top or FIM your grow, at what age, height, or amount of branches do you do it? Would like some feed back. I'm at week 4 from seed. 6th set of leaves are coming out and 4"-6" tall.

I'ds top it now! get it topped and wait about a week and then depending on how big you want them b4 flowering I'd go ahead and flip to 12/12... Keep in mind that they triple in size during flowering!
