      Default Collapsed stem - splinted - will it work?

      I posted this as part of my grow log, but got no response so I thought I'd do a separate post.

      This morning, when I went out to check on my babies, one had "fallen over" The stem, just above where it comes out of the neoprene puck and below the first set of real leaves, just kinda "collapsed" and the plant had fallen over.

      Coincidentally, this same plant, as a seedling, popped the surface and shot straight up. It had a very thin stem that was about 1.5". Shortly there after, it fell over. So I repositioned it, ever so carefully, in the piece of Rapid Rooter I germ'ed them in so that not as much stem was sticking up. It seemed to recover from this and grow just fine, until this morning (21 days later).

      I put a piece of a toothpick along side the stem and then wrapped it with cloth tape, as a "splint".....see the red circle in the picture. The stem is really only about an 3/16" thick at this point, but it did look "thinner" at the point it fell over at.
      Is there anything else I should do?
      Do you guys think this baby will make it?
