G `day HCTN

Squeeze the stem you want to bend before you attempt to bend it .
The squeeze crushes the fibres in the stem allowing it to bend without breaking .

So grab at the point you wish to bend at .Squeeze tight till you feel the stem give then re position 90 deg repeat . Now the stem will be pliable at that point .

The stems will rise back up over a few days . Eventually they will want to grow up vertical again . Just repeat the process a little lower than the knot formed by the initial bending .

Thanks for sharin
