    yeah but you said tidal wave or tornado.....two things that have very lil warning......still i aint going to worry bout my plants cause than they cause another issue, most of them need special care up here in my environment i now have to worry bout caring for something that really doesnt matter........i save everything else i can, plants being the last thing cause they just aint worth the effort unless ive got a couple days to plan what im going to do with them AFTER they get to the car........

    Make a list now so you won't have to think later !

    i take it you have never been in a disaster? have a list in place to save my plants? are you high? ive got a wife and 2 kids and pets........plants are so far down on my list of what to save they dont register.......and ive got much rarer stuff than the VFT's and common Neps most here seem to be listing.......i had a major fire get with in feet of my house before, had an hours notice......did not even think to grab a single plant.....we loaded up kids, pets, photo albums and the like and got the hell out of there....we left rifles in the house worth thousands of dollars........i aint going to stop to pick up a couple plants worth a few hundred bucks

    the only way it would make sense to save my plants is if i have days to move my whole setup, lights, shelving and all........and have someone with a basement who was not affected to move them to......in case of a flood, tornado fire ect......my plants are on their own......hell i wouldnt even enter my plant room while packing stuff to take out.....i do not have a single plant i couldnt replace eventually....the plants stay.....other things go

    I think this is getting off topic from the original question x_x.

    This is an important topic.

    I live in an apartment in earthquake country, Los Angeles, so I'm pretty well prepared. The plants would be better off where they are - on racks that are wired to the wall so they won't tip over unless everything is flattened. I have a lot of "earthquake water," a peat/distilled water mix that hopefully no one will steal. I cycle it through so it doesn't get old, and the plants love it.

    I'm an emergency ham radio volunteer so I will only be able to pack first aid and survival materials.

    That being said, it'd be a tough choice between a huge N. truncata and a N. bicalarata, both of which are too big to move anyway.
