    ^^^ EXACTLY
    As long as the branch isn't severed, it'll be fine.
    I would try to provide some structural support to the affected branches until they 'knuckle' and form a callous.
    My 1st outdoor grow I ended up with a 10' tree that proceeded to split open just like that.
    Used some bamboo stakes to support the damaged branches.
    I think I yielded almost a couple of pounds from that girl.

    Don’t worry you’ll get used to snapping stems on a regular basis 😂 If you look after them you’ll see how tough these little ladies are and how quickly they’ll heal themselves

    Agreed with the guys above, get some rubber wire, loop round and twist to bind it. I've had similar splits in my last two grows but it never caused any issues as far as I'm aware. The wire will stop it splitting any further and allow it to heal over a bit. Just like a band aid on a cut

    ​​Good luck!

    I wiped a little aloe Vera gel on the split and tapped her up with a little duk tape. Fingers crossed 🤞 she heals up fine - I did notice after it was all done and I was cleaning up my mess, that the aloe leaf I had cut off for the repair, had been leaking like a fluorescent yellow type liquid - hope the aloe gel from it was fine - thanks again for ur advice guys

    All you can do is pull it together and wrap some tape around it. You will be surprised how fast it heals. After a week or two it will bond. I've split my stem clear in have twice and both times they recovered. Good luck.

    When I split one like that I use solid copper (THHN) insulated wire and wind around it, or tie them up. She will be fine as long as they dont break off.
