    Very good question, perfect answer. Thank you for running it by me at my speed. I can now explain it to the visitors that ask without reading one of your studies. Very interesting topic though

    Not surprising with that. Tapping it was wishful thinking, but couldn't do any more damage I suppose. On vacuum it might have run a bit early on.

    Lack of regrowth is due to lack of sun hitting it. The latent buds are triggered by light exposure. If you get a lot of light, buds will respond and emerge. Without light, you end up with a dead remnant of a stem.
