My temperature gauge fell off the line. and hit my plant and it snapped in the middle is she a goner, I’m really upset at this .
What do I do :(((((((
Easy peasey: put a drop of honey or fresh aloe in the break, wrap with electrical tape. Done.
@Myfriendis410 REALLY ? THANK YOU SO MUCH IM DOING IT RIGHT NOW!!!
Get good at it because it happens all the time and we’ve all done it. Plant will form a knuckle and be even stronger than original. I think I only have one break on mine this time haha.
@Myfriendis410 I don’t think I have electrical tape
Just pull it together with a twist tie or a zip tie but you have to remove within a week.
@Myfriendis410, okay I have those , honestly thank you very much for that help !!
Any time; that’s an easy fix. They are tough and bounce back quick.
I hopped right on it !! Does it look right ? I’ve never done such surgeries lol @Myfriendis410 If I may ask what does the honey do to help it ?
Some folks use honey or aloe…I mostly just wire or tywrap the split so it doesn’t go any further.
I don’t put anything on the damaged part but most folks do, it seems.
I did this to my current Strawberry Cough, that was a couple of weeks ago. That plant is doing just as well if not better than the unbroken plants.
Short answer, patch it together in any manor that suits you and the plant will likely do great! During veg they can take a great deal of abuse and even thrive as a result.
The plant that I split down the middle of the main stalk is circled
I just used a piece of 14 awg electrical wire to hold it together because the tywraps were a 30 foot walk away LOL.
Great job! on the patch…
Believe it or not, it will work, I broke 2 and used electric tape as mentioned by our friends, those 2 plants actually grew more robust than others. You have done well, looks good
good idea to get some…band aids also suffice…it will heal !
What does the honey do to the plant to help? I put some in the middle of the cut . @merlin44
I am not certain what the honey does but I suspect that it mostly acts as an antiseptic and a barrier to microbes and pests while the plant heals.
stops infection setting in, honey was used by humans in days of olde as an antiseptic, it works real well on burns…
Yep, seals it off, sort of.
