Hi Fellows, I’m new here and just wanted a little info. I was LST on my main branch when I felt the branch bust at the node. I took a twist tie and bonded them back together I hope this works. Just happened about 15 mins ago…The plants are 2 months alive in Veg…Was planning on going to flower in a day or 2 I hope I still can with the injury…Advise is welcome…Thanks
Keep the limbs attached and it will often grow back together. I’ve put broken parts back together before and after a few weeks it is stronger than it was before. I usually put a drop or 2 of honey on my plant’s wound if I’ve broken something. It seems to help.
Because these plants dont instantly flower, but take days or a week or more to be really flowering, if the plant was mine I would feel that was still plenty of time to heal. I would go for it. But that’s me.
…and welcome! Hope you get lots of help.
I usually make a clone and treat it as a topping.
Thanks for the quick replies, I was thinking the same way as far as healing time. So its off to flower for them after their dark period. BTW I grew these plants in winter to avoid the copters over my building they seem to really fly around in summer alot…Paused over me one year for about 3 mins Talk about freaked out…Thanks again fellows
Stonedrus Hello, I need a little more info before I start cloning,I will learn soon. That particular branch that I mended has 4 very nice bug sites onit and ready to produce. So they will be off to produce in a day or 2…Thanks for the idea
I have done this a few times. I have duct taped and had success. I have also just dropped the branch and lived with the result. If you’re plant is healthy it shouldn’t hurt either way. Don’t sweat it!
I took a twist tie yesterday and put it back together right in the node area. If the leaves don’t wilt I will let it roll on…Thanks for the reply.
Looks good, Well good news they look.smokeable so a sample to smoke at worst…hehehe…I think my mending will work out just fine…Thanks for all the support…
…and the Army goes marching along…
You gotta just keep on keepin on. It’s the only way. Adapt and overcome. Now you know.
I like the tone of your song.
The way I see it. The only thing in life we can count on is change. Just gotta hit it in its face, when appropriate, or break contact and go a different way when that is what’s called for.
BTW, are your leaves dropping a bit, or am I just seeing things?
Yes they are good eyeball. I did a heavy water today before flower…
What have you done to your poor doggy! She looks humiliated. LoL
She picked out her own close and hat…Ain’t she purdy…hehehe
Those droopy leaves are no more…after 3 days in flower on 12/12 lights they are perky,perky perky…Plus they are not getting butchered anymore. Gave um a good feeding of molasses this morning… BTW they are WW strain.
It cant look that good without pics
