Plants not watered for over a week

This is three plants in a huge planter. As you can see they are happy and healthy and humming along. The strain is Cream Caramel.


Then disaster struck and we were evacuated because of the fires in California. All is well but we had to leave the plants behind for over a week during 100+ heat wave. When I got back the plants had wilted, as seen in this touching docu-drama.

After watering them they seemed to make a recovery of sorts, this is them the next day after I watered.

Most of the leaves died and fell off, I trimmed off all dead material and the plants, which had just started budding and they still seem to be growing budding up well. Even though a lot of them look like sticks.
I don’t really have a question. I’m just wondering what will happen. What do you think will happen lol

Good chance the stress will cause it to herme on you. Keep a close eye on it.

To be fair it seemed to only kill the lower leaves that could’ve been cropped anyways I think they came out great considering

I know. I’ll post later and tell you if I get any harvest out of it. I heard great things about this strain Cream Caramel.

I’ve come back from vacation to plants like that. Some recover like it was nothing. Some… just die.

Adding aloe to watering can help with water retention.

Healthy vibes.

This year I’ve had my share of luck I’m telling you. I planted 13 seeds and I anticipate losing half along the way but all 13 grew well. And then fire hits and they’re still going! Troopers!

I’ve been shocked by cannabis’s resilience and yet dumbfounded by its sensitivity. :man_shrugging:t2:

You may have an impact on final yield. You might not.

Right. There’s been those times I thought cannabis was so sensitive that it could die if I looked at the wrong way. This isn’t one of those times but I’m guessing they’ll be back at some point in the future. :sunglasses:
