dead orchids :(
Folks, nothing funny about this: plants are not allowed on the playa. If you bring them, the Gate crew will take them, and they will die. They’re not going to babysit them for you for the week, and I can all but assure you they’ll be nothing but compost fodder when you get back to them–and that’s IF you can find em, which I doubt.
PLEASE: DON’T BRING PLANTS TO THE PLAYA.
Sorry to shout, but wanted to make sure that’s clear. A plant on the playa is like a dog or small child, but one that can’t communicate. They don’t belong. Hell, we don’t belong. But they don’t have a choice–you do.
Please, we’re on our hands and knees here, please don’t bring plants to the playa.
