    Default Quick fix to a broken stem when LST'ing

    Hey Talkers

    I stupidly snapped a stem when I was afixing the pipe cleaner and tieing down. It was too small to tape.

    It was broken the way through minus the sinew the other side!

    Panicking, and having used this technique on myself and the cat's ears, I grabbed the super glue.

    Align the stem as perfect as possible and put a small dollop other side. Ten seconds later stem is firm.

    Photo is 12 hours later. White dollop in middle! :-p

    It works in medicine so why not?!

    Fun fact : add super glue to cotton and it spontaneously combust!

    Another fun fact...sprinkle bicarb of soda onto it and it sets like rock

    Contents of my first aid kit...superglue, bog roll & electrical tape

    If it's still going after 12 hours then it should be fine

    I got this knarled looking knot where I'd split the stem on a SSH. Wonder if it works the same as supercropping if given enough time to heal properly.
