    HELP! Broken stem

    Do you think it can recover or is it not even worth wasting time?

    #2
    For sure, tape it up and let it recover. The big fan leaves may not make it, but the stem and little leaves should recover. I once made an "ops" cut on a stem like that. Hanging on by a thread. Put it back together with tape and that little thread grew into a big repair knot in the stem and it went on to produce flowers.
    Don't worry, be happy, grow sticky buds.

      I don’t recommend tape. Prevents the injury from getting air and too easy to damage again when removing. Use plant ties. Make a strong brace/support to hold it in place and in about a week it’ll be fine

        Whatever you choose to use, bind it up and most likely it will survive. Thais has happened to all of us.

          I used blue painting tape, closest thing at hand. A little bit of air got in from the top, I cut it off with trim scissors later.

            That is what I use, good stuff for plants.

            I've always used white duct tape (or a cheap immitation.) I tear off a small piece, fold it over at the ends and wrap it around the broken branch in a U shape squeezing the sticky sides together where the tape joins. As the plant grows and the repair is mended - it pulls the tape open, making the small piece easy to remove.

              That white duct tape imposter is the best. Mine ran out, I just got a giant roll of it, cheap. More useful to me than the real, grey/silver duct tape.

            I just let them hang there, they either die or grow, most choose to grow.

              I like to tie it together with soft twist tie and a dab of super glue. Hope I don't have to do it again

                Just tape it. I have done it plenty of times. Just leave the tape on the wound it will break on it’s own, has been the case for me when the stem gets rhicker
