Overall, the plants did well. I lost about four plants in all but still managed to save a leaf or two from them. There were a couple that I chose not to keep, even though they had been troopers. I packed the plants into un-lidded trays to help them maintain their moisture and set up the timers. Over the course of the next two weeks, I weeded through them - pulling certain young plants or mother leaves to put into covered trays. My new inventory list is an ongoing process, but I have the basics plugged into the program now with print-outs to guide me.
A few trays are still too crowded, but I only have two stands working. I only have one more bag of soil mix, so I've been selective on which plants are repotted. Time will tell if they adjust well, and although most plants suffered wilt for about a week, they've begun to perk up now with some additional care and attention. I won't be winning awards any time soon, but I truly believe they are on the rebound now that I can maintain a consistent watering schedule and especially when I can give them a little food again. I'm curious to see how our new water may affect the plants as well, so I'm watching closely for any signs of distress.
We are settling into the new (smaller) house, but I still have my own plant room, so I'm happy about that. And ironically, even though our new house is smaller, the new plant room seems a bit roomier. I even have a ceiling fan now. I still need to cover the windows with light-blocking drapes, which will also help maintain warm temperatures in the chilling winter we are bound to have here. And, all my supplies need to be organized a bit more, but I'm on the way to good growing again. This coming weekend, my old (new?) club, the Fox Valley AVS is having their fall show and sale, so I'm looking forward to seeing old friends, meeting new ones and getting a violet fix to keep me motivated through the winter months.
