Ok, so I'm just too tired and disgusted to replant my semp that were thrown around in my mini greenhouse mishap today. Currently they are just hanging out on a platter. Will they be ok until tomorrow or the next day when I can get back to replanting them in a planter?

And if so, should I keep them hanging out inside or put them outside? It will be about 22 tonight and high of 30 tomorrow.

Well, you definitely shouldn't do anything with them outside if they are still naked... Sad

What threw them around? Wind? The wind was insane here yesterday too. They should be OK, but I'd replant them as soon as you can.

Semps survive being thrown around in the mail, bare root for several days, so I'm sure they'll be fine x

Thanks everyone. Today should be a better day. I will get them repotted tonight. Chris, I had them in a little cheapie mini greenhouse transitioning to outside. The massive wind gusts yesterday threw the greenhouse around and its contents, despite being secured I thought!

Fixing the mini greenhouse may be a weekend project though.

Semps will survive unplanted for a long time. I once threw a bunch into an empty pot and left them there for a year and nearly all were still OK when I got around to planting them. (I had initially decided to throw them out because they were extras). I would be more concerned about being able to successfully get the correct ID's back on them. They will be OK left outside in the weather, as long as they don't develop wings again. I would not want to leave them in the house for any time unless kept cool. Plant at your leisure, they can go weeks easily without planting (again outside in a sheltered location (from the sun))

We all go through plant disasters from time to time. A couple of years ago, we had a tornado pass overhead here. It dropped a lot of large hail, some of it over 2" in diameter. I had a couple of semps blasted to pieces by direct hits of the large stuff but they recovered. The semps held up a lot better than many cars in the area.

Jennifer, I think Twitch may have meant not to have them sit in direct sun given that they need to recover a little...

Ok all tucked back into dirt! Since I don't trust the mini greenhouse I decided to give them protection with some of my winter sowing containers. Thumb of 2013-03-20/jvdubb/0400f4

Great idea Jennifer. I'm thinking about doing that with all the new tender succulents I just got.

Oh yeah, I have used it! I haven't winter sown before but just looking at the milk carton cut in half, planted then taped shut again, it seems doable! Next winter I guess! I tip my hat to you. Hurray!

Off topic a bit, but this is the main culprit of my uprooted newly planted semps. She (Koko) is looking very innocent here but is no doubt annoyed I ruined one of her cozy beds.
