I have several plants, about 2' to 2'6". The two largest were pulled out by a dog, and I found him chewing the roots. After explaining to him why this hurt me so much, I took one and braced the main stem with a piece of metal, wrapped it with thin velcro strips meant for securing plants to stakes or fencing, lightly rinse the roots with water and applied some root tone, put into some water and crossed my fingers. No go, it instantly took a dive. The other was more damaged, so I took a sharp knife, cut the stem at a pretty heavy angle, and just stuck it in some water. This one stood right back up, filled with water, and is as bushy and as strong as you could ask. So.. What next? Can I possibly get this thing to root. Can I get it to root enough to get it back into soil? Do I have a better option. Most people say give it up, but I have a lot to learn, and I am willing to try anything, simply for the sake of trying. Can I be successful and can I learn from this. I have had many experimentations in growing, and have had a few mediocre buds produced, but this is the first time that I am using good clones, from one of the best growsers that I have ever known, plus I have the resources to make this work. To be truthful, these are really my roommates plants, and the original grower is his really good friend for many years. He(my roommate) won't bring him(his buddy-pun sort of intended) into this, because he doesn't want him to know how stupid he was, and I had just told him(my roommate) 2 hours earlier, NOT to let that dog outside unattended, even if the plants were protected. Now, I would love to learn something, and bring this plant back. I know that genetically, it is top of the line. Is there anyone out there that can tell me how to make this thing happen. I am willing to get nutrients, any medium, a pump for water, in short I am willing to try anything, but anything that has been proven to work would be my first wish. It is as good as a plant could be that had just gotten its roots completely removed by a dog. In fact, it is in better shape than you would expect. Thanks for taking the time to read all of this...
