Newbie here. First Grow. Tried searching for this but didn't find exactly what I was looking for so I'm hoping one of you fine experts could help me out.
My plants are currently 3 weeks into flowering and I got really lucky that all 4 that I started with ended being female. The plants are completely healthy other than some of the leaves closest to the bottom are dying off.
I had an accident where all 4 of my plants' stems got bent over 45 degrees. 2 of them in 2 or more places. A couple of branches just below top colas were completely bent over. However, none of the stems or branches actually broke off and a few of the injuries showed some fluid coming out but no significant tears other than one long branch that broke halfway off at the joint.
I grabbed some bamboo sticks I just happened to have and duct taped them to the plant for support and I used twine instead of tape where I could. All plants are now upright and stable. The plants were splintered up within minutes of the accident but were fixed up right when the lights were turned off (so no time under lights right afterwards, unfortunately.
1. Will the plants be ok, even where it bent nearly 90 degrees?
2. Will the tape adhesive poison the plant? (little tape was used)
3. Is it safe to assume that the plants could all turn hermie at this stage of flowering?
4. How far did this set me back?
5. Anything specific I should do to help the plant heal? (nutes, etc...)
I found info in the forum close to what happened to me but I would like to get some opinions on this specific instance. Thanks for your help
.......yes, I was high when it happened. And yes, it was my fault.
