Today when I was trying to use a twist tie to try to stand my seedling up some I accidentally broke the stem. It’s not a complete break but I’m concerned about where the break is. It’s right at the part above the embryo leaves. They withered up not long after the break happened so while I know that’s not good I hope it doesn’t mean the plant will die. I have 4 sets of leaves with another four trying to come in and in the middle there are two little green leaves and the leaves have branches growing on them so there’s some foilage. She’s 2 weeks old from germination so she’s coming along.
I did the method with cutting the straw lengthwise and have the seedling in that. I had to cut some excess off being that the break is not far where the leaves are. Is there anything else I can do to try to save her? I don’t want to lose my baby and I know that plants can regenerate themselves. How long should I wait before checking to see if she’s stronger? I already can assume that any browning of leaves means that I’m losing her.
