For me personally, I go by the number of nodes. Usually around 7-8 nodes I top mine. Then I veg her out a bit. Right before flower I will remove the weakest looking bracnches leaving 3-4 main tops.

Once the clones get vegging again after rooting, I let them get going so that I can see how they are going to grow, let them get 4-6 nodes of growth, then I FIM which is similar to topping but encourages all of the branches to grow up and out.

OT: What exactly do you guys mean by 'amount of nodes'? How do you count them?

They are still nodes. Count each branch as a node.

Immature plants will have two branches at each node. Mature plants will have only one and they are offset.

Like in this picture?



I am going to FIM as soon as I see 6 nodes, then.
