For everyone who has been waiting for news on Plant(ies') condition...
Plant(ies) has new growth!
After a nightmare this morning in which I discovered him completely shriveled in his pots, I jumped out of bed and did a thorough examination.
There are still some stalks in critical condition, but overall the original Planty seems to be pulling through, with new little sprouts to boot.
So, Planty is a daddy. I feel like I should be passing out cigars!
