Heartbreaking dude! Oh that must've hurt walking up to that. There are a lot of spray deer repellant that are safe for veggies. Garlic is another one rabbits and deer don't like. Also fill tea bags up with cayenne or capsiacin. Chicken wire will work. Nobody will see it either. It looks healthy still. Have you moved it? Did it kink or did the whole plant, roots and all move? I would leave it alone. She'll probably respond positively. I bend all my plants after they reach about 4 feet to allow the bottom branches to fill out. Works wonderfully. I do that though because the cola buds will rot come harvest season if I keep them upright.

Another thing I use to do is take some 4 pound test line and string it up all around the plants. Deer don't like bumping into things they can't see. And it's weak enough that it won't strangle the deer if they get caught in it. Just make sure it's not close to your girls so if a deer gets spooked and runs through it, it won't tangle up in the plants.

prop that baby up and wrap it with some gorilla tape , stake it up and it will be good to go

I’ve seen a lot worse scenarios , ask me how I know , that were worse than yours and the plant pulled out of it

you can leave her laying on the ground too and it will still recover to a degree

i would go all in if the bet was will this plant survive YES

You could also set up some booby traps with the fishing string and some aluminum cans or pie pans. If you have a battery powered radio you could leave it out there and play the radio. Spray the whole area with a mixture of some garlic and cayenne.

Let's see what happens I think she'll survive and pull through just make her stronger I just stood her up and watered her and pressed the soil down cuz I didn't want to uncover it cause more damage she seemed pretty strong when I bent her back up I've got another one that same thing ran into it but I 90% believe it's a male so it's going to leave it see what happens to it

Don’t worry that plant is gonna make it. Just give her a little splint for a while.
