Default split stem

Last year my friend gave me a couple of oz of weed and it was very nice. Unfortunately it had gone hermie (one of his plants had gone hermie and it had pollinated all of the rest so it had a few seeds in it). Now normally I would never try to grow these seeds but as I liked the smoke so much I decided to germinate one of them and try it as a guerilla grow away from my property.
As it is so far away it has been pretty neglected on the whole, and has suffered from under watering at least ten times this year.
The ground I planted it in is very stony so after a little experimentation I started feeding it as a soil less medium with half strength feed every water.
The hole I dug was small - maybe a foot square - so the plant is pretty small too, only about 4 foot. However it seems to be doing OK and starting to bud nicely.
After a very hot august, yesterday we had a big storm and when I walked the mile that the plant is situated I discovered the plant had split in half due to storm damage.



bear in mind I have walked 8 kilos of water every day to water it at this stage I figured it was worth a little effort to do some doctoring



Normally if I get a main branch break I would splint it, however this time the damage was near the heart of the plant and I had to devise a different method of keeping the break immobile: so I entered a series of stakes to keep the plant immobile and hopefully give the plant a chance to heal the splitting point.



I used a standard bandage and wrapped tightely and with the stakes keeping the plant immobile hopefully this will work



I will take off bandage when I crop and post pics to show the healing point

Default Re: split stem

looks like it will heal
a couple things i would say is...
i use electrical tape to mend because it has flex and it doesn't retain moisture which could give fungus issue like a cloth wrap and provide a dir attack on the inner exposed core from the split
just food for thought

on something like this i would use copper wire and tie it back together, you can get plant healing gel at most farm and garden stores. then stake it for support. copper is good for the plant and the stem will grow around it. use thrive in the water 5ml per 4L for the next several waterings.
