Ok thanks alot will do. . Also dnt know if anyone has tried or heard of this. But those clear rolling papers a friend just told me to buy a pack keep them in my tent, if it happens again to get them soaked and wrap the broken part of stalk or stem with them.. he said they are made with plant glucose and will help it heal . Is there truth to this. I have seen the clear papers but never bought them. .
You can also use super glue on plants just like we do for open wounds on our bodies. I had a side branch partially break off the main stem from too much bondage. it was a bitch to tape it so I glued it instead. Works better than tape in some cases.

I read about the use of superglue, but never tried it...truth be told when i get a branch split, its usually a MAJOR issue!!

I keep grafting tape handy for super cropping and accidents.

Grafting tape is paraffin coated so it seals the wound from air and healing is much faster with less chance for infection. It is inexpensive and should be available at any good nursery.

I'll keep an eye out for some for sure!! I hate going into nurseries around here though....even when my wife go into them for veggies supplies, the people that often run these businesses are totally straight laced, and just by looking at me assume i am buying their crappy soils for growing weed...LOL

There is one store though that will likely have it, and they are good people, and know us.(we buy our animal feed from them as well as other stuff like veggies and berry plants)
