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

@redeyejedi I did the same thing on one of my plants . I pulled them back together with some green plant tape  . It took some time to heal and had a Huge knuckle there . It became the best plant I ever grew . It would drip resin every day off the buds that grew from them split nodes.

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

@redeyejedi if you can....tape it up....but they should be fine....split my main stalk last year in half and well......it still made the buds in my profile pic so dont worry. If you can get some super thrive. Fixes just about everything lol

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

She'll be fine bro. Looks healthy and strong enough to come back from it. It'll just move nutrients to other spots while it properly heals so don't expect a crazy amount of growth till it's healed. Nothing to worry about regardless, you'll get an amazing yield anyway.

@stonewolf lol Iv been caught out with it a few times myself so I try to look at the dates on the threads now, I dont always remember tho 🤣  It would have shown up in recent posts because Philmebowls posted here just before you did, so you can blame him 😆 it's all good tho 🙂

It’s a glitch in the site that several of us see from time to time. On occasion I’ll see post from days or weeks ago show as new and I read multiple times a day. When I notice they are repeats I go to the bottom of the page and hit “mark all read” and that resets my unread posts and fixes the problem, temporarily tho as I do this a few times a month. Your frequency may vary. Wish I could say it’s fixed but this is the workaround.

I have never seen or known of this glitch, I am sure there is more to it

Sometime people comment on threads like this and the comment doesn't go to the bottom of the feed so you don't see it. It's the type of layout the section of the forum has I think. Nested comments its called 😉 The comment will stay with the post they comment on rather than go to the bottom of the whole thread. 

Phil me bowls commented on it recently, and his post can be seen right at the top of the thread, which would have told you there is a recent post on this thread. It should also have sent you to the top of the thread to that comment when you click on it too... thats how it works for me any way.... Let me know next time you have an issue like this pop up and ill check it out, but i dont think there is a glitch here, seems to be working how it should

I posted about this months ago and several mods said they have noticed it also. It was back when you were doing some debugging on the site that we brought it up but I have no idea where the thread is. I read new posts 2-5 times a day so posts should never be more than a day old, usually just hours before I get to them, but posts that are days or weeks old sometime turn up. They are old posts that I’ve already liked so I know they aren’t new and it even said last post days ago. If I don’t hit the “mark all read” button the list never empties but just adds more old posts continuously till the reset as mentioned. Long gotten used to this with the workaround but it is real for some of us. Not sure if this happened here but it happens.

@monkeydo Yea I know the thing your speaking about, it happened to me yesterday, I had just updated my diary and then started looking at recent posts, I jumped back to page 3 because I had seen all the posts up till page 3,   and when I got to page 1 of the recent posts.... my diary (that I had just updated) was there trying to tell me that there was a new post, from me, that I had'nt seen.lol

 

But what happened here wasn't anything like that, Philmebowls replied to an old post and then Stonewolf saw it in the recent posts and thought it was a new thread,  and then I said it was an old thread just incase more people thought it was a recently damaged plant.

I think thats the story anyway.lol 🙂

That's all helpful info guys. Thanks for sharing the back end moderator side of the forum. I believe there was a post from Phil that I ended up seeing the diary as a result of.  

Thanks again admin
