Semi broken main stem during LST
    #857696 - 08/02/22 06:14 PM (1 year, 8 months ago)

Hello all, I am doing an outdoor grow with a few auto flowers. I just began LST training and almost snapped the main stem on one of my girls, photo below.
Should I expect the plant to bounce back, possibly just a slow down for the next week in growth? Or did I do irreparable damage?
Thanks everyone

It doesn't look too bad, like a good attempt at a supercrop.  Should heal up into a nice knot.

Also some tips for next time, assuming this is an organic soil grow, you can add a second bucket underneath with some wicks and a pipe, so the soil will wick up water as it needs it, and you'll only need to keep water in the bucket.  Between that and a mulch layer, you can really cut down on the amount of watering you need to do.

Thank you for the response. I was freaking out over here!
I am looking up supercropping now…hopefully this will just make my girl stronger!

If you run a bamboo stake along the length of the stem and tie every 3 or 4 inches to hold it to the stick it will recovery straight up, if you leave it tied like your pic it will recover in that shape.

I've had a similar problem. Fixed it with some micropore tape wrapped around it.
