yeah it'll be fine. tape it up bro. i use plumber teflon tape as a first layer, cuz it increases pressure as you wrap and hold the broken stuff in place. then any old tape on top to hold it all in place. I've broken bigger, tape it up fast, never undo the wrapping....unless you have to absolutely redo or fix it, it stays until harvest.

Okay taped it up. Don't know if this is the right way first time taping a plant with damage so bad. The only tape I had at the moment was Duct Tape but hell Duct tape fixes everything right. lol Do I need to do anything else to it?

Oof, there shouldn't be wilting. Means the xylem/phloem has been severed somewhere. Wherever it's wilting will likely die. But whatever isn't wilting should keep on going without skipping a beat. It's all about the xylem/phloem, you can mangle and mutilate the plants as long as we don't severe the inner plumbing. Good luck.

Looks good. Keep it watered and it should be fine.
Thank you. Just water it. The temperatures here have been close to 100F then with humidity over 100 do I still need to leave it in full sun or should I put it in part shade?

Thank you, It was split and twisted. I think a small tornado went by. I appreciate the help.

Kind of depends on how big you plan on growing it. If I thought it was going to be a seven or eight footer If I thought it was going to be a seven or eight footer I probably wouldn’t top it before three or 4 feet. But that’s just me. Want The stalk to Beef up and keep the plant more in balance and try not to overload that joint. I have split some plants also. Just use some of that green stretchy gardeners tape And secure those two main Stalks You have to each other so they won’t split apart. When you get A long in the grow there’s going to be a lot more weight on those. So just take some precautions for the next windstorm and rain storm.

That "bro" is a bro-ette... with pink toenails. Well maybe a bro.. but I'm guessing not. I think a bro would use a darker shade. And sparkles.
lol, i didn't see the pink toenails until later in the convo and went back up to look at the pics again....like a bad detective i was looking at the plant and missed the clues in front of my eyes lol.

Thanks everyone for all the great information and help! This is some pics of my plant this morning. The plant has perked up no wilting that I can see. It's amazing that a plant with that much damage can be saved. The two tall ones are Ak47 and the other 2 are Green Crack.
