Recently, a deer ate all the leaves and (growing) buds my one plant. It wasn't big, about 2.5 ft at the time with little leaf growth (about 4 sections where leaves grew because I picked a bad spot with a lot of shade and only 3-4hrs sun). It is Durban Poison seed germinated under metal halide, then moved outdoors. When I checked back on the plant, it was just a stick in the dirt. I gave it a week and new leaf shoots were starting. I replanted and brought it back indoors. New leaves are growing well over the past week, but just in a two nodes at the top of the plant. I've been thinking about cloning just under the new growth so the clone would be more compact (not moving outdoors again). It is a guaranteed female, but it would only leave a stick (again) for the mother with 2 undeveloped nodes. Is this a good idea or would the cut kill the mother? I'd post a pic, but the wife has the camera.
