Advice pls-keep or remove branch?

Page 1 / 2

Hey 🙂 
So the thickest, most bountiful branch on Eve snapped almost clean off today. 😪 
I've read in a few diaries about taping them on and it being okay....but this looks way too much to recover from, to my Newbie eyes.
I had no tape so have used a plastic tie to temporarily hold her up till tomorrow.
Thing is, if I do keep the branch,because of the LST to get the candelabra shape, being tied up after the snap, has now made the branch like an umbrella over the top of the rest of Eve and it may stop a lot of light reaching the rest of her. The 3rd pic shows a side view tied- you can see her towering over the rest.
I'd appreciate advice on whether to accept the loss and take it off...or keep it on ...and what is the best tape for the job, please, Percy Peeps?
Thank You
Ali

Shit man, that sucks! You haven't flipped yet right?

I would say give it a try and the worst thing that could happen, is you learn something. First lesson that comes to my mind is "always, ALWAYS, have duct tape ready to somehow hold that 'next-shit-that-will-definitely-happen' together" Soon you'll find out duct tape is as important as a good light source, good substrate and good air circulation.

Good luck buddy!

@alij68 Ouch sorry to see that Ali. Be sad to lose your best branch so hope you are able to repair her. Ive read the same as you so id probably be inclined to have a go at taping it up. Looks like you've done a decent temporary repair job already.

I’d say you will know in a couple days wether you get to keep the branch or lose it. If everything looks sort of normal on that cracked branch in a few days you got away with this, if it withers there is no hope. Do what you can but accept what happens. These plants are tough but they can’t do magic, ya need Hogwarts for that. That spell would be “Cannabis Repairo”

Itll be fine Ali, just add some tape and some supports and give it a few days Smile I have had worse. Broke a plant in half down the main stem before and it was fine. Just tape up any breaks and give them some time, the plant can fix them

Hahaa...if only! Thanks Monkey, just a short waiting game now and at least I didn't lose the plot or stress about it- I'm growing as well as Eve lol
Just wish it hadn't been her biggest and best branch, I kept looking at it thinking it was gonna produce some nice big buds for me. Smile
