ya...so its still attached...but just bent and def damaged...how badly will this effect the flowering and yield?
Is there anything i can do to help it recover faster?

ouch hopefully it wasn't the cola tip.

if its really bad it may be good to gently prop it up more straight. but its like a broken neck you may end up hurting it more if its snapped?

did you soften the spot before bending it over?

Dude, if it is still attached to the plant relax!!

Bending the branches are not going to drastically hurt your plant. Pictures would help in this case, but from the sounds of it, your plant will be just fine!

I have broken branches almost completely off, attached by only a few stands of the outer layer of the branch and they managed to produce alright even.

oh if its still standing bye itself your fine.

what i meant by softening the spot is part of what they call supercropping (right? i am still new) and they rub the stem between their fingers until its soft and pulpy then let the branch lean over gently. they do this to even out the canopy and force the lower branches to develop like colas.

you're fine, the plant will form a hard knot where the stem was broken and continue on its merry way.

take a toll on yield?
I'm pretty sure she will end up fine....just trying to be perfect here...and this doesn't fit into my paradigm. hahaha.

Nah, nothing major, if anything it may add a day or two but probably not.

The unintentional supercrop.  I accidentally did it a couple weeks ago about 5 days into 12/12.  The nodes at the same level and one level below it surpassed it during the stretch, but it worked out quite alright, and the supercropped bud grew fat.
