Would Ants be Helping or Hurting a Snapped Cannabis Stem??
Week 7 - The week of 'fun' outdoor growing issues.
After surviving a pretty wet couple weeks things have become dry and mild again here in New England. Some temps into the low 40's are expected, but this is preferable over 60's with high humidities.
We noticed today that the plants had taken quite a beating from the wind gusts that went through our area the night prior.
It wasn't obvious as the plants are supported and weren't flopped over on their side.
What we noticed was a patch of ants around the snapped stem area. Any idea why they are there? We assumed this was for the sap of the plant.
Anyone have an idea if these little insects are helping or hurting the plant?
We have taped the plant and added another support rod. So hopefully they will not have any additional stem snaps before harvest.
