Stem Snapped! Is it Dead?!

  1. So, I need some expert opinion. I was changing out my reservoir the other day and the stem of my second biggest plant bent at least 90 degrees. I taped it up in the hopes that it would recover but now, a couple of days later, it looks terrible! Is it dead? Any chance of it coming back? If it is totally dead, should I cut it, dry it and cure it? I am on day 51 of ~ 80 flowering. Thanks everyone.

  2. Well i wouldnt take it down untill u see it dry good, cuz if it surives that damage can repair. while using a tec names supercropping u infact destroy the inside of the stem by pressing it so it grows back bigger and with the ability to transport more nutrients etc.
  3. Should be fine, keep her cool, soft light for 2 days, consider foilar feeding, plants can really take a wack, ensure you ain't strangling her with that tape, use support sticks if necessary

  4. Thanks for the feedback guys!
