Broke the central cola

Hi, guys. I accidentally broke the central cola of my plant. It has been three weeks after the germination. The strain is NL auto fem. Will it grow at all now? Or should I throw it away and plant new seeds? Thanks for your help.

Keep it. It's bad that the plant is autoflowering and has a limited vegetation period. The broken cola is a stress for the plant, so it'll stop growing for some time. I would expect a few days, maybe a week. While it holds still, reduce watering and feeding. Let it cool off. It's up to the flowering now. If it starts too early, your plant will have no time to heal, and the yield will be so-so. Let's hope that it won't flower early.

Don't throw it away. Two other colas will grow soon. Of course, it is stressful for the plant, but it is not the end of the world.

Put it back in its place. Tie it up with the healthy part, then cover with a rag or paper. The chances are small, but one can only hope.
