Broken Main Stalk on Female
    #798992 - 11/18/15 09:01 AM (6 years, 8 months ago)

My plants are a little over a week into flowering and the tallest plant snapped almost in half. I had it tied down to keep it short. Will it recover if splinted?






The tall one is female. Biggest girl is injured :psycrankey:

Put a splint and some tape around the broken/ripped part. Eventually it will mend itself. About 2 weeks or so. I would check on it on 9 days.

2 weeks is big setback. I have my oscillating fan on low so I don't break the top again. Out of the 4 I have left I think they are female, but the best smelling one might turn out to be male or herm. A broken top is a huge stress on a plant. With the genetics I'm using I was already worried about herms, but now  :oldman:

Well i don't know what to tell you. :shrug: You can't force a plant to heal itself it 1 day.

Also, that's looking pretty wilty. :smile: I hope you were able to mend it up quick while the break was still fresh!

I guess it's up to her whether she's  gonna mend or not. This is a small hobby grow and any smoke I get is good considering the problems I've run into with these. I have some seeds from some good indoor that I'll  use for my next run. The broken branch doesn't look like it's going to fix itself, but if it doesn't, my canopy will be much more level.

How is the stalk doing now that you applied a splint to it?  I have had plants snap and once you apply the splint as long as nutrients can still pass through the chute to the top of the plant it usually grows back even stronger than it once was.  Marijuana in particular is extremely popular for having that effect.

In this particular case my splint was inadequate, or perhaps I didn't get it splinter fast enough. The other chutes grew up and I had multiple tops on that one. It helped in the end because my canopy was even after that. I felt like I lost half a plant but I really would have ended up with more colas. This grow was aborted due to stupidity and paranoia.
