As you may have noticed, when you grow your own Mary Jane there are certain inconveniences that can occur, therefore, you need to be prepared to act in time.
One of the most common problems that can happen to you is that some of the stems of your marijuana plants break… Has it ever happened to you? Well, don’t worry, there are ways to solve it. Look at this post.
Why do cannabis plant stems break?
To improve growing yields many cannabis growers use low stress and high stress training methods. Well, it is ideal that you apply these techniques properly because otherwise one of the consequences that you can cause is that the stems end up breaking.
Another factor that can cause damage to the stems of your plants is excessive wind, so being cautious is best. If you grow in areas where there is a lot of wind, it is ideal to use stakes. It is also a good idea to protect your girls from rain, as it can also cause stem breakage.
How to repair broken stems
The most popular and commonly used technique to fix broken stems is the tape method. Generally, the tape used is either duct tape or adhesive tape.
As a general tip when you have a broken stem, simply place it in a straight position and tape around the wound as tightly as possible. This tape will not allow the stem to move, and will make the repair easier.
You may choose to leave the tape on for two or three weeks. When you remove the tape, be careful not to damage the stem again. Finally, to avoid this inconvenience, handle your cannabis flowers with extra caution. If you repair your broken stems in time, you can be sure that your harvests will be a success.
