Make sure you keep an eye on the broken plant......

That much stress can make a plant herm.....not saying it will, but keep an eye on it....

Looks like you're plant is 3 or 4 weeks in flower.....

Quite a few to go.......looks great overall...
.

Keep doing what you're doing......
Oh do I keep an eye on her. She's my favourite and hoping to get a half decent yield from her. I'm just amazing at how little shock or change she's shown to anything, she's a tough little thing but I'll search about plants herming. I've seen a few post and comments but not quite sure what it'll look like if I'm honest

Looking really good. I did similar to a stem a while back, wish I'd id seen the capt's post as had to rip it clean off but there you go.

What height and intensity have you got your lights on atm?

I always keep zip strips of all sizes handy in my grow rooms. Act fast and it’s like nothing ever happened……👊🏻🤡

Thanks mate. I'm really pleased with how it's all going, just suddenly getting paranoid something is going to crop up and wipe out the lot... No idea why I'm worry suddenly though 🙄

I've got the at 100% now and as high as I can get it in the tent. I held off turning it up to full waiting for the vertigo to come into flower, although I think I got impatient and turned it up just before but she seems fine with it, although she is just shooting upwards.

The capt is brilliant. Such a useful fountain of knowledge.
I'm truly amazed at how the branch has reacted though. At no point did her leaves droop. I feel like it's lightly touching the main stem but this is enough for them to communicate and transfer resources that she has bounced back so well. I will keep a close eye on her though in case she thinks of herming up

Like you stated above.....

Just on the lookout for herm.....

I split one last grow and she did not like it......

I think I saw nanners show up 4, maybe 5 days later.....

Near the end I drop to 30% in the last week or so, I keep pushing them down throughout all of flower so it's not a huge shock. I get so paranoid about the pm and bud rot near the end
As well you should. That def a good way to approach it imo. Fuck a bunch of wpm…..🥊

So I've looked into this and what to look out for and so far can't see anything that might suggest it herming and we're past 5 days since the incident. I will monitor... If it Herms, just for the bin right?

30%!! Wow. I'd love to get that low. I've got the dehumidifier going and even in the tunnel I've created it only goes down to 40%. It is bloody damp and cold here at the minute though.

I'm currently 55% inside the tent, but could maybe get it to drop to 50%

It may just affect the stalk in question. Or there is a slight chance of the stress changing the plant’s physiology and causing a full on switch, I would just monitor, if a sight or two on lowers pops up and that’s all, snatch the balls and keep a close eye.

My house in the winter is 30% and in the summer I have a basement sized humidifier for a small lung room. Over the years I have picked up new equipment and learned from mistakes. Takes time

I don't think anyone wants hermed plants, but I don't know if I would just up and toss it if I found a herm.....

Granted, I pulled mine even though it could've pollinated my whole grow.....it just happened before my eyes and there was no way of controlling it......so it got the chop.....

I have another flower area that I don't care about.....it's a shitty setup with shitty lights......but....

The reason I built it was for experiments......and overflow.......and well, just to have something else so I don't have to throw plants out......

If it's an uncontrollable herm....chop....
1 or 2 sets of nanners, it goes in the overflow if it fits....
Late in flower......if it's not overwhelming, I'll take the hit and hope like hell it's nonviable pollen....kind of.....

Full blown herms, chop! I don't want it in either cabinet.....

I think I've got lucky. Anything ball like has a pistle coming out of it. This plant is brilliant for beginners!

I've never had a herm in the middle of a grow grow balls, only nanners... ..

In my experience, the balls would show up early on.....meaning it's a true herm.....

Stress induced herms, in my experience would show the nanners.......meaning it's not a full blown herm....

If anyone is reading this, correct me if I'm wrong......

Now I'm curious......

10 days since my last update. Can't see any signs of the creme herming up, she's a tough little one! Loads of trichomes forming on her as well.
The big bud has started to get trichomes over the past week as well.
The vertigo 🙄 this thing is put of control. She's so tall and I had to cut her down a bit as she was burning herself on the light. Also tangled herself up in herself a bit just to get her out of the way of the light for the other 2, this is definitely a max 2 plant tent! She's lagging behind the other 2 and I was tempted to just bin her so I could start my next grow in a weeks time but instead I'll push the germination back a week but I still think she's going to be due for an early harvest.

The creme brulee. How long do we think for harvest? I think about 2 weeks, hopefully!

Hey homie! 🤡
What do you know about supper cropping?
It may not be a bad option for your lanky lady.
If you want to know more shout. I can definitely help you get that outta the way of herself while improving uptake to the stalks that supercropping has effected. I do it all the time in that stage of flower. Done right, it’s harmless. It’ll buy you back some headroom for sure……
