Doing some LST'ing yesterday and when pulling 2 of the branches down, ive split the stem at the top (pic below)

22086F92 EF38 4874 B1C8 9EC2EDB9B592

 Its above the top branches so im hoping its nothing too bad but can someone just take a look and advise please?

Should I remove the plant ties of those 2 branches and tape the top of the stem up?

 

Thanks in advance

Any ideas guys? I’ve just left it at the moment but naturally if that is going to be detrimental then I’d like to fix ASAP. 

Thanks All

Hey man, by no means a pro-grower here but for what it’s worth I’ve done this before to multiple plants and as long as the site doesn’t go bad and looks as though it’s healed okay then you should be all good 👍🏼

yer mate this happens man, itll be fine. Taping it back up can stop the risk of infection n shit, but most the time they just fix themselves Smile
