Yeah she will recover , just make sure you don’t apply any more pressure on the same branch, might happen again

Looks like you did a good job taping her back up. She should recover well.

I had a northern lights last grow that split at the top right where I topped it and I didnt notice it right away and it had dried too much to put back together so I just put a clip on it to keep it from getting worse.
That plant had trichomes everywhere. I saved the yellow leaves and tried them out and got knocked on my butt. I dont know if it was coincidence or the plant reacted to the stress by trying to protect itself. I am going to try that again on purpose soon.
Point is a split is nothing to worry about.

not really. I had one when about 14" tall seedling, snap at ground level. I repaired it with my neighbor’s bee honey and some clear packing tape and buried the break and all that below the dirt level a couple inches and she’s now come back to being my 2nd biggest and NEARLY about to take over being biggest plant :wink: :heart: That’s why i named her Nancy Kerrigan :smiley: They really ARE resilient though in what they can/will take can come back from. Was trying the rolling stems to “pop” them to make them bend a certain way technique and my shrek hands/fingers popped’em alright…turned purple at that “knuckle” bend it formed and next day was brown but you know what? it was over halfway down the stalks on both of them i did it to and everything above and below are still healthy green and growing. it turned itself back upright on each of the two stalks overnight and has had significant growth over past week and a half :slight_smile: they’re pretty tough

I split two plants right down the middle. Both are still growing and held together with Gorilla Tape. :smiley:

I just used pipe cleaners on split in my last grow. With pruning sealer. Keeping it like a trophy. Lol. She obviously made it through.
