8. Phase II

Belated update from Tuesday morning.

After ten days - I'm doing this mostly hands-off, indirect light and very light, infrequent water application followed by time for the plants to dry thoroughly, not putting them away damp - down to 4 that look healthy.

2 got moved from the healthy group to the group that's hurting but still could pull through. Some plants that had signs of life are in the dead group now, so there are 5 left hurting that have a chance.

18 dead, but they got the same watering and I'm holding on to them another week in case one decides to show some signs of growth.

Don't know how many there were to begin with, probably 30 or 32 or 36, best case there is about 25% survival, could be as low as 10%. Looks to me like the bigger plants are the ones tending to pull through.

Removed some of the dead leaves this week, I think that pruning is reasonable. Next time I'll think about watering Thursday or Friday (and if I understand correctly they could go 14 days so next weekend is ok)
