I got back from work today and noticed my greenhouse had tipped over with my plants in it. I then panicked rushed over to see my plants all on the floor. I had to cut the damaged bits of. Then I tryed saving the soil as I ran out of mix. Then tryed repotting all of them with what I had left. Now I dunno if I planted them right or if thay will live. Thay look so ill and ugly. Any Adobe on them plz ty.

This one was hard to plant. It had soil under it like a umbrella shape but could not put soil back. Under. But most roots are under the soil. Plant ls quashed and don't looK the same any more. ... 3.jpg?dl=0 ... 0.jpg?dl=0 ... 8.jpg?dl=0 ... 7.jpg?dl=0 ... 4.jpg?dl=0 ... 5.jpg?dl=0 ... 5.jpg?dl=0 ... 0.jpg?dl=0

You can see the root here but it so hard to plant it some of the pitchers get in the way. ... 1.jpg?dl=0

I'm so sorry about what happened to your plants. One time my VTF blew over in the wind and got crushed. It recovered though and your plants look a lot better then mine did after it fell. They definitely look save-able to me. I would say just keep treating them the way you were and they will recover!

I wouldn't worry about it, the plants should be fine as long as the roots didn't dry out before you found them. I've had pots fall about 10 feet several times, splattering soil all over the ground. The plants have been fine each time.

Thanks guys. eased off my worrying abit. I am just hoping for the best. I am sure your right. I forgot to mention that some Cactus mix is probably in the soil. But not a lot of it. The mix has sand in with it plus I added single on top of the soil for the cactus. So that will be in the mix with the carvierus plant soil. Just hoping that the stuff don't add minerals in to the soil.
