Nope. Going out of town for a week, so I put the inside ones in a water tray to get them over saturated. They were sitting fine for ten minutes. Then bam, tipped over.

Oh, wow. Sorry about that wreck! But, thanks for posting as it will be a cautionary tale for others to pay attention to. Water trays, wet pots, etc., can get heavy! I hope the damaged to the plants themselves was minimal...looks like some nice plants!

From the carnage you showed, they don't look to bad off. You may consider part shade for a little while if their roots were disturbed. This heat is going to make it harder for them suck up a lot more water.

It was an insane day. We left the next morning for a 10 hr drive with three kids under six. However, The night before, at 1000 pm, a pipe busted in the upstairs bathroom.

Between the plants and the plumber leaving at 2 am, it was an insane 12 hours.

But the plants were ok ppl, the plants were ok....

<chuckle> I'm glad you had your priorities in the right order...poor helpless plants! :lol:

Seriously, though... 10 hour drive x 3 kids = 'very glad to get to your destination!'
