Anyway, not ruined in the slightest. The cool thing about these plants is they just about withstand anything. I actually accidentally ripped an entire side limb off one of my ladies in flower about two weeks ago. Didn’t even bat an eyelash- I’ve done worse.
Are you in flower now or still in veg? (And autoflower or photo?). If she’s a photo and still in veg, my advice is to just let her veg another week or so while she heals up from the top and moves on with her happy little self. She’ll probably produce 2 new nodes where the one you broke off was. If she doesn’t, also no harm done, she’ll just concentrate more energy into those side limbs you have tied down. Almost like an accidental @Arrow style mangle - absolutely nothing bad comes from a grow like that!
If she’s an autoflower, I feel about the same. No harm done. But she’s gonna decide she’s ready to flower whether you think she is or not.
At the end of the day, some of the highest yielders I’ve seen around here are the ones who nearly met a tragic end. Just take a look at @VOL4LIFE ’s plants. Crushed by the light fixture and produced ounces of primo bud.
Awesome! Thank you last week i was out of town and had to keep that closet closed because they had to do work on my apartment. The temps got up to 32 celcius in there and they actually grew insane in just a week!
Remove the bottom two branches. Then top each of the remaining four. It will give you eight really nice colas with good spacing. It is called a Quadline, a hybrid manifold. You should rearrange the branches a little so each branch forms a 90 angle
It’s tempting to try all the fancy techniques that the pros use. We’ve seen the videos, after all. They make it look so easy. But I’d caution any new grower to learn to walk before they try to run. Start basic and go from there. Most/all of these training techniques involve walking a thin line of damaging your plant–just enough-- for her to do what you want. Yes, they’re hardy and in fact quite hard to kill. But even 30 years on, I still have the occasional OOPS! moment.
