Slowly the basement plant room is coming together. Things are coming out of boxes and filling up shelves. The plants are coming out of baggies and going under domes - after, in most cases - a little bit of surgery. It's been a very basic process for the most part. I've been trying to make good progress - many plants inside the baggies have been pulled out, groomed to a nub, potted up in fresh soil, watered in and put in domed trays. In some cases, only a tiny sucker remains, but so far nothing newly planted has been lost. The "inventoried" stands are filling up with tidy, condensation and baby-filled trays while the "un-inventoried" bags are finally narrowed down to one and a half shelves.
There are other fun little things to see in the plant room, although nothing is organized quite up to snuff yet. It's all a work in progress.
