Week 7 GG auto question

The tallest flowers growth is causing the light to be higher than it probably should be for the rest of the team. Am I too late in the game to tie down the tall stem a little bit so I can lower the light? Any other suggestions?
A couple more progress pics

Maybe you can supercrop it. I think if you leave it you will either cook the tall one, or the smaller ones wont get enough light. I’ve never grown autos, so wait for other input.

I’ve gone as far as putting a little hose tubing over the tips on some duckbills, so I can crush that pith and get it to bend.

Viewing your picture, there’s an empty spot @4 o’clock you could aim it at on the way over.

Well, I think I frigged it up. Feels like I snapped it, pic below. Have it fixed so it won’t fall over. Did I blow it? Anything else I should do? Sorry for tagging everyone, first grow so I feel like I should get all the opinions I can. Thanks in advance!

You’ll be OK. You may want to get some tape and make that bend closer to 60-70°. I use athletic tape, it is easy to remove, and breathable. Other folks use different tapes. If the stem has any inside exposed, put honey on it. It has antiseptic properties.

Congrats, Looks intact from photo, I can only zoom in so far. Give it overnight to a couple days and watch it heal and form a bit of a knuckle and the remaining branches will react and turn upward as well.
