Just follow the basics and you won't go wrong. Be sure to dust the wound with sulphur and let it dry out for a few days but not in direct sunlight. Pot up and water. That's it.

You water icon_scratch I stand in a about 5mm of water for about 1 minute to moisten, but don't actually water as such. Maybe I'm too tough on them. :lol:
Best regards

Your a hard man Dave 8)

Once mine have had about 4 days to heal the wound they get a good watering but I pot in agricultural grit with some compost added so it's nice and free draining. I'd be a bit more cautious if my greenhouse wasn't heated though Dave.
