I like this phrase.

It's an actual part-time person we employed to water on some weekends. My facility has 7 greenhouses, and to water them all by hand takes ~4 hours each day. The individual who killed the Drosophyllum also allowed several tens of thousands of dollars in research plants to dry out and die, and was terminated. Weekend waterers are usually a weak link for large conservatories/botanical gardens and it is typically a job requiring the utmost trust. The only alternate is for the staff to work 7 days a week.
