I had the whole story laid out for you, but after reading it a few hours after I posted it, I felt a little better. I'm a forgiving sort of person, though I'm still wounded to my core that my babies were not taken care of nor any thought given to getting them back to me when all the drama started. Here are some pictures of the condition my plants were given back to me.
I understand and appreciate all sides and opinions but that does not negate the fact that no one took responsibility. Hell, even I took responsibility for my part in it. I just wouldn't do someone that way, no matter what was going on.
