I started some seedlings back in early April. My dog accidentally knocked over one the pots and completely severed one of the seedlings right at the cotyledons. With little hope it would make it, since it was barely forming its first set of leaves, I decided to pot the little guy back up. I've kept it in a bright covered area on my patio for the past couple weeks and it looks like it's going to make it after all. Just thought I'd share in case anyone has ever had a seedling break and thought it was done for.

Oh they will come back from a lot of damage....I purposefully prune mine sometimes when they have not bloomed in a while to encourage branching.

Hurray! Nice. I have read lots of threads where people say they were going to throw a cutting out or a piece that broke for one reason or snother and t stick the broken piece in soil and it grows. Smiling

For sure with cuttings. This on the other hand, was a newly sprouted seedling. It only had 2 leaves when it was sheared in half. I had a hard time believing that it would have enough strength to come back from that. But it has! Here's the updated progress.
