Oh fun times, to start off with there was a fire in the apartment next door. That fire spread to our attic and that caused the now flaming attic stair door to fall into our laundry room where I kept all of my indoor plants. It crashed into and busted my handmade acrylic tank...which was supported by a 2x4 frame which of course caught fire as well. The only reason our apartment was ok was that fact that there were 3 inches of water in the 90 gal tank at the time, so it stopped the fire from spreading in our place....but that heat caused the pump for my antifreeze radiator that was in the highland tank to kick on (which now had holes in the line), and it sprayed the whole room in about 5 gallons of antifreeze. That got all the indoor plants.
Not 2 days later we were in a hotel waiting on a new unit and there was a fairly bad flood in the area. I guess the sewage line burst/backed up or something. It covered everyone's front yard in all that grossness, including my outdoor plants. Cleanup crew considered everything that wasnt bolted down or actually growing in the ground a biohazard.....there go all the outdoor plants.
as far as the plants/materials go all that survived both ordeals were 2 growlights, 2 acrylic panels from the tank, 90 5x5x7 pots, a couple fishtanks, and some sundew and lily seed I had stored in the fridge.
Thats what I do. I drink and I grow things
