This large Manihot grahamii fell over . The main plant will live but its' total mass is on the ground .
The Castor Bean plant might be next . I staked it but there is so much weight at the top of the plant it might snap anyway . I've run out of good staking material to insure its' survival . I may try to find more material to secure it .
Hoping for the best with it .
