Though he approached the subject more from the ghost side, rather than the garden, a horticulturist such as Forrest could appreciate the insights into such a rare phenomena.

Seeing the artificial sunlight filtered through the droplets of water suspended in the seedlings anti gravity field, the unspeakable had a thought. "I would love to pick your brain sometime about magically simulated sunlight. I've been doing some research on the obscure spell Lumos Solaris. From what I gather, it produces too intense a burst of sunlight for it to be used for gardening, but I may have another purpose for it." And there he went. Steering a perfectly good conversation about a love for nature towards his mysterious work.

“You are indeed correct Mr P…Damian. That sounds right up my alley. They were something I always wanted to see on my travels as a young man but something I never ended up coming across. Would you be a gent and drop it into my office sometime? I’d love to read a little more about them.” Ever the student, Forrest never turned down an opportunity to learn a little more about plants. And as for picking his brain, “Of course. Of course. You know, I actually met a man in Russia who was trying to do something very similar. Or was it Siberia…” trailing off in thought for a moment before eventually returning to the conversation at hand as he sometimes did, “But yes. Why don’t you drop that interesting article into my office sometime and we can discuss it then?” assuming he was actually in his office. He was someone who liked to be in and around the plants rather than sitting behind a desk.

The twenty-two year old nodded at the DERP department head to confirm his name, then added, "It's Gunnar." But... several things he could do? It wasn't in his job description to decipher riddles from other department heads, so he simply nodded when the older man mentioned watering. "I'll leave that to your employees then." He, too, knew the detriments of overwatering so he could simply observe if his help wasn't needed.

"Yes, Mrs. Bagnold, thank you," Gunnar nodded as his boss asked him if he was settling in well. He was enjoying his job and even if there was a bit of a learning curve, he thought he was handling that quite well. And he was going to keep using her formal title until she told him otherwise because she was his supervisor after all.

Figuring if they needed his assistance, they would ask now that he'd offered, Gunnar again turned his eyes towards the sapling and just watched it a moment. It was too bad he didn't have a camera with him, but he'd have to remember to bring one tomorrow so he could snap a picture for his dad. He glanced over at his coworker, Darej. "Ever seen one of these before?"

With a small nod and smile, Forrest replied simply “Of course Gunnar. Of course.” Plants were not for everyone and who was he to force someone to do something they had no interest in? Although there were those who works jobs that they didn’t actually like. He did not envy those people in the slightest.

Still though, it was intriguing to witness something out of his ordinary day. So here he was observing the work of the tree.

Hearing Carson ask about assisting did spark Dare to also speak up, mostly to Aurora but also within the vicinity of Plant Boss (Forrest) to hear as well. "I'm willing to assist, as well if needed." Darej's arms were folded all this time as he had observed casually. Loitering to watch was alright, but remaining stagnant wasn't one of his favorite things to do. He had his wand at the ready at all times.

As he went to turn and walk away from Gunnar though, another voice called towards him, but this one seemed a little more willing to assist. “Of course. We’d love to have you assist in the watering of the little sapling if you’d like to help. It’s Mr…Patterson. Darej, yes?” That hour he’d spent learning the names of the people on Level Four had indeed paid off it seemed. Potentially. Maybe.

Somewhat tuckered out from socially interacting with everyone, Forrest turned quietly and flitted through the small crowd of people, smile and laughing as he did so. He was ready for the quiet of his office. Or more likely, he was needed somewhere else. He departed the greenhouse, leaving his employees to mingle and chat, should they want to. He however was going back to work.
