    Now that is a pitiful picture! Rats! But I also bet it will side-branch off of that node that is left. 'Course you will have to wait another 3 months....:-(

    Oh well, I guess most of us had experienced this. It happened recently with my Haraella odorata when the pressure of the water on my faucet hit the bud that was about to bloom while I was watering it. I just wanted to myself

    that sucks. I put mine in water to see if anything happens. lol. The worst case scenario is I end up with a stick in a glass of water instead of a stick in the garbage can.

    We all do it one time or another. I tipped over a phychopsis plant in S/H and had to repot it. In the process I found that I had broken off a tiny little spike. I have waited so long to see any growth on it. Like others have said, move on.
