Snapped a stem, chances of survival?

I know these kinda depend on how much stem tissue is still holding on, but It’s been about 2 days and I don’t know what to think on this one. Snapped the same branch in two different places o_O

Looking closely, her large fan leaf is still quite turgid but the smaller leaves have gone limp. Should I just wait it out? Worst case, I accidentally Topped my plant again.

I would be surprised if they don't snap back within 24 hrs. I use the 2" blue tape from 3m and loosely wrap it around the stem where i am going break it over. Never have any trouble from them. I figure that blue tape will split and give a little when that knuckle swells up.

Yeah it’s been over 24 hours for this guy and it’s not looking good, I almost completely snapped it off on accident. Didn’t pinch it enough. I used the aluminum tape because it’s sturdy and very sticky. I won’t be super cropping again until my tool comes in.

I snapped my wedding cake mom off right above the first node. Only hanging by a skin. Taped it up like that and she was good as new a week later. Like it never happened. These plants wanna live.

Hahaha...I like the idea of the aloe and DE..=..silica...to help it heal...have to try that Oreguhnism...
Good rule for super cropping...water that bitch the day before you super crop...it makes the branches very squishy and pliable...best thing you can do is pinch up about 1-2" of the branch you want to pinch and bend over...break up those fibers...then take a pen or pencil, bamboo stake etc and use that as a solid object to push your thumb against...I generally pinch about an inch of flattened stem and then stake it into the position I desire...it gets a huge knuckle at that point and just a day or two to recover....no tape....
You should be good in a day more or so DET PDX...as long as it is not clearly dying...it's working to repair itself.

I am going to use teflon tape next time. It is a great idea.
I figured if it can be used for my drinking water it's good enough for my plants lol. It's not sticky but does hold really well so that's a plus. No more leaves getting stuck while trying to tape branches lol.
