Other than those few and far between trips to the greenhouse to confirm that he had work to return to, however, Var'n had not been working with plants during his time as a weyrling. He had used some of his training as a healer, but only to help with follow-up treatment for other injured weyrlings, after they had seen fully trained healers.
Now, he was staring at a mostly-dead plant left behind by the previous resident of this Weyr. People were worse about house plants than they were about pets! Someone got this when it was pretty, probably promising themself that they would take good care of it....
Well, it wasn't completely dead, and if Var'n couldn't take the time to work on a less odorous form of numbweed, he could at least rescue this poor thing.
What kind of plant is it? Quiloth asked curiously, and Var'n had to admit that he didn't know. It was deciduous, and obviously something that a rider had wanted to keep in his or her weyr. So probably pretty in some season or another. But not necessarily a good plant to keep inside, and only a bit of the plant was still alive above the dirt. Not even a single leaf remained, but there was life still in the stem, and Var'n was going to give it a try. Repotting it would be too traumatic at this point, but he grabbed a scrap and started making a list. He would need a bit of fertilizer, some more soil for the pot, and certainly a watering can.
