Broken main stem northern lights autoflower

Sad day for me I have a 6 week old beautiful northern lights auto and while flushing I broke the main stem nearly completely off. I leaned it back to its original position. What can I do to save her?:crossed_fingers:

As long as something is still attached slather some honey on i, stick it back in place and tape in place with electrical tape. Tape a stick or pencil to it if you need extra support

The black electric tape works great. It stretches as she heals, there will be a knot there. I like aloe on breaks. I’d go tape a few x’s, add a small stick for a support then tape a few more circles around again. Weed is crazy resilient.

How long do they usually take to heal?

Paint some honey on it and tape her up and use support if you need to like everyone else said and in couple weeks you should be fine.

I put honey on it and taped it with band aid tape. You can tear it lengthwise to achieve the right size. Worked well. Time will tell. I am sure the stress on her May stunt her growth.

I’m not 100% sure. Once I tape them back up I leave the tape there until I harvest for fear that the flower weight will make them snap. I just know you want to get the gap closed so both sides touch and then it’ll seal itself up with a knot of growth. It I’m heavy handed when defoliating or cropping and have broken my fair share of stalks and branches.

No wilting. That must be a good sign

I use Teflon tape and honey to fix broken limbs and it works great. The honey acts like the adhesive for the Teflon and helps the plant heal :+1: in my buck

Honey is an anti septic. Bacteria cannot grow in such a high sugar content and it doesn’t harm the open wound on the plant. I like the Teflon tape idea too.

Day 48 N LIGHTS ON RIGHT began to flower I think. BB on the left day 48 day 6 of flower

Even though the TDC is in th he 800’s how do I know if the composition of nutrient is correct? Other than a lush and new measure of nutrient

Honey and medical tape. She seems to have healed⬇️
