We just had a severe thunderstorm here and my zuc plants are sideways from the high winds. They are not broken, just bent. Should I leave them or should I try to straighten them back up?

i would leave them alone. Straightening them may break a stem.(at least when I try to 'fix' a plant I end up making things break)Or at least wait a day or two to see if they reach back up for the sun.

Yeah, I would let them sort themselves out naturally.
Hope they'll be OK !

yah one of my leaves somehow bent itself halfway in the stem. . . but the thing aint dead yet (the leaf that is). Still green, been bent for over a week now. id leave it as well [thumb]

Well, they are all about 90 % back to normal. I have a few babies on them and I'm waiting for them to be ready to pick. Thanks for the advice, I'm glad I didn't try to bend them back myself...
