I spent all day yesterday scrambling, trying to get everything watered so I could get back to the real work of bringing the new stuff out of the back room where it's being stored. I got a couple hours at the beginning of the shift, and not quite a full hour at the end, and that was it. It was kind of horrible, and it was definitely hot.
But when it was all over with, there was a bromeliad / Dracaena display I liked. So.
And then I came home and tried frantically to get everything watered so that when my next day off arrives (Thursday), I'll be able to do something with it besides watering plants. It's not going well. One of my plants decided it couldn't wait and threw itself off a table. (Seriously. It was my big Dieffenbachia 'Tropic Rain,' which when it gets dry enough goes kind of limp. It's also very top-heavy, even when properly watered, so when it starts to lean over from being dry, it ends up throwing itself off the table. This has happened twice now. I don't know how it is that it always leans to the edge of the table, as opposed to leaning in toward the center: I've been putting it back so it leans west; it just keeps falling off east. It's just an east-leaning Dieffenbachia, I guess.)
