    If there was a disaster coming...

    A bit random but I was watching a TV show and it made me think of this. If there was going to be a massive disaster like a torando or tidal wave and had the chance to save all the plants you could carry, what would they be? I think mine would be my 3 neps and my VFT cuttings. What would you save?

    I think I'd be carrying something other than plants.

    Since your asking what plants I'd save well it'd be my N.sanguinea from Andy, N.Ampullaria, my flytrap seedlings and my bicalcarata my other plants would be too big and would take to long to get ready.

    If there was some disaster like a tornando flood I'd make sure all my important stuff, medical stuff, some food, and if I had time my plants if not I'll just go and hope they'll make it though if I were to ever have some rare or endangered plant it would be top of my list over my other plants..

    He said if you had the chance to save your plants, not if you were rushing out the door, which ones would you try to save. I would save my VFT and Sundews.

    First thing into the car - my wife.
    second - the cats. (two of them)
    third - if enough time, photo albums and CD backups of digital photos.
    fourth - if time,the small safe containing personal documents..mortgage papers and such.
    fifth - if time, the home computer.
    sixth - whatever else there is time for and will fit in the car.

    plants would be VERY low on the list. they probably wont make the trip!
    they will have to fend for themselves..
