Broken Stems - Big Mack Superstar

Hello Everyone,

The other day I broke a stem on the Big Mack Superstar while low stress training.

I thought I could repair the stem by reversing the LST clip.

It turned out to be a success.

I also noticed another broken stem that presumably snapped after the clip was fixed in place and I didn't notice until checking the tent this morning.

This looks like a pretty good recovery to me :)

This is the damage I found this morning.

I'm amazed at how this big break has not caused the foliage to droop and die.

If this is not a display of the adaptability of cannabis, then I am not sure what is.

It's almost completely broken, yet still provides the foliage with what it needs to continue growing, amazing!

I've decided to not mess with it and see what happens.

It's difficult to pick a favorite between these two, but my favorite is the smaller squattier Big Mack Superstar. I like short stout structures, and this is usually an early indicator of a female plant. I would bet the smaller one is most certainly a female.

That's all for today.

Tomorrow I am planning to set up a new grow tent!

What do you all think of these Big Mack Superstar's amazing ability to heal from these serious stem snaps?

I would love to read your thoughts below!

And your time is valuable, so I always keep this in mind and I do my best to respond to all of the wonderful engagement I receive.

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day! -@futuremind

Nice one on the repair, take a piece of tape like duck tape and put it over the hole like a Band-Aid and it will be good to go with nothing getting in.

That is heart breaking, but yea looks like it will heal all well. The shorter Big mack looks pretty healthy too. Keep on growing! 💚

I swear it's the Phlizon in that small space.. It's perfect for early stage vegetation. I need to get more of those LED panels, as this one will go in the 8 foot tall tent tomorrow ;D

Cannabis is an amazing and very grateful plant. If I had to bet, without being entirely sure why the breakage is important, I would bet that it recovers. Looking forward to seeing what happens. By the way they look great.

The breakage is hardly important with how much these are growing, but another branch snapped on the other plant as well and it's just a strange occurrence with these LST clips to me because I've never had this happen before.

Thank you for the kind words my friend, I have a new very big tent that I'm setting up right now! :D

La verdad no puedo creer que lo hayas solucionado jajaa cuidar a estas plantas es casi tan complicado y estresante como tener una impresora 3D, casi que consumen el mismo tiempo

Lo hermoso de la impresión 3D y la jardinería es la capacidad de combinar las dos. Puedo ahorrar mucho dinero en jardinería con diseños simples impresos en 3D.

Estoy armando una carpa nueva hoy para las plantas.
Más por venir pronto, ¡gracias siempre por su increíble compromiso y apoyo a mi amigo!

I remember snapping a top almost completely off.. I threw a little tape on it and she healed up nicely

It's truly amazing the plants can do this. I've never dealt with breaks this bad. I think it might be from the plants growing fast as fuck, and the clips restricting the intense fast growth, because the snaps are happening still, days after adding the clips, it's kind of a problem but kind of not because the plants are just growing like wildfire.

I am impressed with that branch. The leaves are still looking healthy despite being almost torn off.
