    Not sure it would, camomile sure wouldn't, but I'm willing to give it a go.

    Can't be worse than using chemicals or the extreme method of a peroxide mix though.

    Anyway, back on thread, I replanted the stretched sprout yesterday and, so far, the little bugger is showing no ill effects and seems to be behaving as if nothing had happened. Maybe what helps is that I always water from the bottom so the roots would already be a tad stronger and longer, and going into what was already moist soil could help there too.

    She's definitely drinking, that's for sure

    My stretched plant was at around the same stage as yours, as far as number of leaves goes, and this is her now. She's 17cm at her widest and 7cm tall. I don't think the replanting, the cinnamon, garlic or watering from the bottom has done any harm whatsoever.

    I've used this method for tomatoes all my life. They grow way stronger if you grow them for a month or two, lollipop the plant and bury the whole bare stem half then it just makes new roots and is much more sturdy and healthy
