I'm having a nightmare day. i managed to slice one of tomato vines(main stem). i noticed my plants had grown and were now tied too tight to the supporting canes. when i was replacing the string i managed to slice one of the plants..like an idiot. i learned this lesson last year..cant believe i've done it again. Rolling Eyes

anyway..is there anything i can do? will the plant survive..it's no completely sliced through..but it is halfway. and the side that is cut(left side) is the branch producing the next 2 truss'.... i could replace the plant as i have some more 5" plants under lights at the moment.

unfortunately i had to pull this plant and chuck it on the compost heap. best thing to do..i had some spare plants so best to do it now..give it a chance to catch up. on a brighter note..i have my first cucumber flower today..
