How add another bend modifier to the stem of the egg plant in order to make it more curved? I did it reading the tutorials and it looked very disjointed when I added the bend angle near at 90 degrees.A

If you stick to what the tutorial does you will be OK, but when you get into Anim8or a bit further you will find ways to bend the stem, and if the points go out of line you can move them back into line later. But for a beginner you should just stick with the tutorial.

Hello.  :)

 Probly the 2 most common mistakes when working with modifiers are:
1) The modifier is upside down. If things behave strangely, try turning the modifier 180 degrees. (b4 binding).

2) The modifier isn't positioned correctly. Check from all views to make sure that your object is 'inside' the modifier.

  The info in the manual explains how you can double click the modifier to change the angle of bend.  ;)
