Plant bent by the wind
    #275428 - 09/05/09 01:27 PM (7 years, 3 months ago)

My baby (that's near fully grown) isn't very stalky so I've been worried about the wind effecting it for awhile. Yesterday I could see the stem bending in the dirt so I did my best to try to make a little forcefield to guard against the wind. But, I woke up this morning to find it bending at around a 120 degree angle. I quickly put a screen around it to support it so now it's bending only at about 165 degrees but still not straight up. Is this gonna put my beautiful plant in shock and ruin her for good?

Here's a couple pics of her... (there's about 10x as many purple hairs on her buds now  :laugh:)





And here's a  picture of my other, much more sturdy plant.

Hopefully she hasn't been shocked too much from just a little bending.

If I were you I'd surround her with chicken wire and twist tie a few branches to the cage to keep her upright.

For my indoor plants I use bamboo

As long as it doesn't break, you should be good.
All that blowing strengthens the stem, and it sounds like your "force field" lessens the problem.
One thing to keep in mind with your plants is that they are still plants so they don't need to be babied once they have a good root base and a sturdy stem.

They're about a month into flowering, those pics are from 2 weeks ago.

I know I don't need to baby it but it's scary seeing the wind knocking it around. As you can see from the pic the stem is pretty skinny, so that adds to my discomfort. My forcefield was just a chair stacked on top of a lawn mower bag LOL. I just used what was around me in my backyard and put it a couple feet away to try to block some of the wind. I should've just put the screen that I have around it now over it before but I didn't think it would do anything.
