Default Greenhouses



Are you here to spend some time with all your green friends? Maybe you’ll spot Professor June somewhere in there tending to her favourites. If she sees you - she would love to hand you a slug repellent to help de-slug the school cabbage patch. If not, then take a look around - the battle last term has done a number on the greenhouses but Professor June is slowly working to better them. She has even set up a lovely little corner with a bench in greenhouse one - maybe you’ll be inspired to do your Herbology homework there while watching the color changing roses, and enjoying the sun.

OOC: Here's a basic guide of what you might find in each greenhouse; please remember to play realistically based on your character's age and skill level!

Lia couldn't help but smile whenever she talked about her plants but she did appear a little confused when asked suddenly about her siblings. Not that she minded at all, in fact she loved speaking about them as well. "Mhmm, several. I have sisters as well. I'm the youngest." Only by a few short minutes since she happened to be one in a set of triplets.

Lia watched how carefully Ollie removed the plant from the container and set it down into the waiting soil. "Looks like I'm not the only one that cares about the well-being of the plants. Thank you," she beamed at her friend. Leaning forward she gently soothed some of the soil over the plant that Ollie had just set into the hole she had made. "That looks great!"
Hearing how nicely Dahlia talked about her plants was so refreshing. She was glad to know that others cared about plants like she did.W ell, other than old ladies. However, Ollie must’ve been blind or stupid or both. She had absolutely no clue Lia was a triplet. Not that she would ever make a connection, she was so bad with faces… and stuff that she doesn’t read. Sometimes she was convinced that she had a photographic memory. That was quickly put to rest when she tried to remember an assignment a professor had written on the board and Ollie had convinced herself she didn’t need to write down. She did need to. “Being the youngest is cool. How many siblings do you have?”

Honestly she was really happy that her carefulness was noticed. “No Problem. I wouldn’t want to mess them up or anything.”

Lia was used to the sibling questions, she got them all of time. So really it didn't even occur to her that Ollie had no idea that she was a triplet, she just assumed her friend was curious on how many siblings she had and which others were cousins. She DID have a whole ton of family currently at Hogwarts. And sometimes people tended to get them confused. "Nine." The answer came automatically and simply like it was no big deal at all.

Lia smiled. "I didn't think you would mess anything up.. if I did I wouldn't have asked if you'd like to help in the first place." Sorry if that sounded mean but it was the truth. She took great pride in her plants and it took a lot of work to keep them healthy. "I know you care just as much about plants as I do."

Rosalie smiled at Simon when he joined her, a flash of amusement crossing her face when Miss Nam nearly ran into him. Some of these children had so much energy in them, and her own daughter certainly fit in that category too. She did as well, she supposed, when she was their age.

"Doing well overall," she answered. "I think Sera's gradually coming to terms with everything." Less scowling when she ran into her in the corridors now that they were a few weeks into term. "How are yours?" It had to be a bit of an adjustment getting used to a new schedule with the rest of the family at home, though he appeared to be settling in well, as far as she could tell.

And soon it was time to begin work on the project. The Board Chairman didn't seem to be doing himself or the Board any favors with the students, but...well. No comment from her. There was work to be done.

"I think I'll be joining the lake group," she told Simon. "Care to join?" Or if he felt more inclined to join one of the others, that was perfectly fine too.

Either way, she waved her wand to levitate several potted plants and followed the others to the lake.



It never failed to bring a grin to Ivy's face when Lisa called her Pan. "Hey Tootles!"

And starting off with something positive like that was probably needed because the way the Chairman talked was a bit...off-putting. After subjecting the to Healer Poppy all of last term, that was all they could say? As if they'd never done anything wrong?

It was weird, and she also didn't like the presence of the notebooks, considering the last time a creepy group had been hovering over their shoulders and taking notes. Obviously it wasn't exactly the same, but it was hard not to recall those times as she eyed them.

So instead it was probably best to just...ignore them for now. And decide which group to join.

Emmerson had suggested not going with Professor Kazmi, and Kinsay had suggested Professor Flamsteed, but then it was clear that those two professors were in the same group, so...maybe not? Although Mamie was still going, and obviously they didn't all have to stick together if they didn't want to, buuut...

"Let's go to the domes then?" That seemed like a good group, although Ivy would've been fine with joining any of them. It sounded like the board members were gonna be with all of them no matter what so...

She used her wand to levitate a few plants and joined the group heading for the domes.

Goodness, Ollie’s eyes widened at the number. It confused her how a human could push out nine babies. “That’s a lot of siblings… Got one you could spare?” She chuckled. She had always wanted a sibling, preferably older. Someone who could warn her about things that happened as you get older. Hopefully a magical one so they could’ve told her all about Hogwarts. She still wasn’t sure how magical children worked out when only one parent was magical, but she would’ve wanted a witchy sister.

She nodded in response. That’s what she would’ve done. She grabbed another container to empty. Slip the hand in, scoop the soil, put in hole, cover in dirt, and repeat. It was much, much nicer to have help, even if she was the one helping. “I’ve never had anyone help me plant, but it’s nice to have a designated task.”

The look on Ollie's face came as no surprise to her. Pretty much everyone that heard how large her family was had that very same reaction. "Yeah but most of them are more than twice my age and have lived on their on since before I was born so it's sort of like in a way.. I have nine siblings but also like I only have four." Lia laughed softly giving Ollie a smile. "How about two or three? Do you want a brother or sister or maybe both?" She was obviously teasing but it was nice having lots of siblings.

Reaching for a container she carefully scooped up everything inside, little plant, dirt and all. "Never? Well if you every would like any help.. come find me. I'd be more than happy to." Especially now that she had helped her, it would be only fair. Placing the plant and dirt into the hole she smoothed more dirt on top of it lightly. "I don't mind letting others help me as long as they know what they're doing.. or they ask questions if they aren't sure."

Simon offered Rosalie a smile when she talked about her daughter. Simon surely couldn’t imagine having his boys at school with him. They were just infants. By the time that they were ready to go off to school, he’d be in his forties… his forties. He frowned deeply. Forty was scary. Thirties we’re better. “They are good. Bianca always has her hands full with the boys but she’s a saint and I’m lucky.” An understatement naturally but B was always good at handling being a Healer and taking care of everyone around her. That woman was…. Impeccable.

He shook his head at her question before looking over at the Board of Govenors’ members that remained, Winston, and a few students. “I shall stay here. I wanted to poke around the Greenhouses a little. I’ll catch up with you in a bit. I’m sure Winston will need my help surely.

Simon watched her leave and a few others before examining a few plants in the greenhouse with eyebrows raised. Peculiar indeed. He’d never seen a plant like THAT before. Though to be fair, he tended to avoid plants… More of Bianca’s thing.

Do it for Juneeee.

follow me; everything is all right.

As November draws to a close, there's a development in the Hogwarts greenhouses. During the beautification project embarked upon in the previous month, new donated plants were added to the greenhouses as well as the grounds. One vined plant, with particularly mesmerising flowers blooming along its vines, is flourishing beautifully, but many of the other plants housed here have begun to wither and die.

Perhaps you notice during your lessons, or over the course of an extra-curricular trip to the greenhouses. As the days pass, the withering plants become harder for any but the least Herbology-inclined individual to overlook.

Curious.

He'd noticed in the last class in the greenhouses that things looked... Un-alive and a curiosity had been sparked on why this might have been. Thankfully, he currently has some free time to so Evan decided there was no harm in indulging his curiousness in order get a closer look at the plants.

Entering the greenhouse, gloves and protective wear in his bag since one could never know, his nose wrinkled at the site of the poor plants. Why did so many of these look dejected and like they were beyond resuscitation? There was the really pretty.. pretty flower that seemed to still be thriving and yet...

Everything else. "What is going on with the poor plants?

Ash was not the best Herbology student in existence. But she was good enough to understand that the plants in here were dying. Except for the really pretty one. It was good that one plant was alright!

Wait. No. It kind of seemed like the pretty plant was sucking the life out of the other plants... but it was so pretty that it might just be okay...

No. No it wasn’t. Ash tentatively touched a mundane flower. Some of its petals and leaves fell off. She turned to Evan.”Something is killing them. Maybe that plant is hurting the others, like an invasive species.” This better not be the boards fault. They only deserved one chance... and this was their third.

The greenhouses usually housed many flourishing and thriving plants but in the last herbology class the plants had looked unwell, some even on the verge of dying. Bella felt bad for Professor Flamsteed that seemed to be battling a hard cause when so many plant's were in need of love and tending.

With nothing better to do the snakette left the castle and headed down to the greenhouses to look for Professor Flamsteed. Maybe she could sign herself up to be a greenhouse helper/assistant? If it resulted in house points Bella would be thrilled, but the plants well-being was priority one. Inside the greenhouses she didn't see her professor/head of house anywhere, but she did see Ash and Even and lots of plants in dreadful states and one plant that stuck out as blooming. Weird. Coming closer to her friends Bella said "Hi Ash!, Hi Evan!" Catching the tail end of what Ash's was saying she asked worriedly "Shall we try and tend to the plants? Maybe moving them out of the greenhouse will help?" They probably should fetch professor Flamsteed too.

Violet had been trying to cultivate some special plants for a potions experiment this term and took the opportunity of having a bit of free time to go and check on them. But when she got to the greenhouse, she found that all the plants were practically withering on the vine.

"What in the world has been going on in here?" she cried in exasperation. "What's happened to all the plants?!" She was full of frustration to think of all that work wasted.

It was hard to focus on the dying plants when there was such brightness and color right in front of him in the form of the pretty plant. But something was happening. Maybe there was something weird in the air? He hadn't really realized he'd asked a question to the inside of the greenhouse, until Ash appeared next to him and was remarking that something was killing them. Well, that could certainly be true. But there's no way it was something as beautiful as the plant thriving.

Right?

"Maybe we should ask Professor Flamsteed if the Board had brought new soil with them for the new plants. It could have been that there was bad nutrients in it for the others and it could need transplanting?" Bella's appearance also got a smile and a small wave her direction, before Evan responded to her question as well. "I think we should probably talk to Professor Flamsteed before we try to do anything. But moving them out of the greenhouse might not be necessary. They might just need... freshening up." Like with the soil. Or maybe they needed more water, or had too much water. Something.

He stepped closer to the blooming flowers, deciding to focus on the beauty in the room instead of all the sad. He didn't turn to look at Violet, but he could hear the question so he offered a response, as unhelpful as it was. "Dunno. But one seems to be okay at least. Maybe this was a stronger plant than I had given the board credit for."

Was this even one the board had brought?

Could that pretty blooming plant really be evil? Bella didn't want to jump to hasty conclusions, but it was suspicious when all the plants around it seemed to be on the brink of dying a slow death. Ash's thought could be spot on or totally far off. Bella was about to offer to go fetch professor Flamsteed when Violet came over in a right state, crying out in exasperation at the sight of the sick plants. Shrugging Bella answered like Evan unhelpfully "Hi Violet, um maybe the plants have attracted a sickness or have got too much water or something?" She was as clueless as everyone else. Looking around, she asked the others "Who should go and fetch professor Flamsteed? Has anyone got any ideas on what we can do to help the plants in the mean time? Could they be lacking water?"

Violet looked over at the plant in question, which did indeed look lush and beautiful. And strange. "What sort of plant is that, anyway? I've never seen anything like that before, not even in books." And Violet thought the fact that this strange plant was doing so well while everything else was dying was just a bit suspicious. Though after the past few years, she was inclined to be suspicious about most things.

"And it seems odd that every, single other plant is dying. Surely they couldn't all be affected the same by the amount of water or type of soil."

The instant Serena walked into the greenhouse her nose wrinkled. What was going on with all these plants? She needed a few of them for her precious potion experiments and they were WILTING.

Serena huffed and ignored the rest of the students already there. She wasn't in a great mood to begin with, and you add dying plants to it, it does not make for a happy Serena. She chose a spot farther away from people and sat nearby plants that weren't as dead. Though there were those pretty flowers and vines.

Hmmmm.

Serena eyed the students then the vines again. She had not gotten in trouble the last time she did it, so she figured it'd be okay to do again. Very quietly, the redhead drew her wand out and a phial from her bag. Carefully she cut a piece of vine and slipped it into the phial.

Lalalalalaaaa....

Serena's red hair was hard to miss, and V had been traipsing around in the courtyard, looking at the sky for snow. It was a crisp December! And it had snowed a few days ago, but V was in the mood for it to snow again. And THAT is when she saw Serena looking quite determined, and sooooo V followed her.

Stranger things had happened at Hogwarts, but none that V had ever been able to witness. And sure, she had noticed that plants were dying...but she had chalked it up to the winter. Didn't things die in the winter? Plants. Plants died in the winter.

She wrinkled her nose as she entered the greenhouse after Serena, and she sighed LOUDLY. "Everything is like really dead. I thought it was the cold outside." If Serena hadn't picked up on V's following her before, she'd know V was present now.

Meda had needed some new herbs for her teas so when her planning time had come she decided to bundle up and head to the greenhouse. What she hadn't expected were things looking not so much alive and students around. She hadn't heard much of the talking going on, but her eyes searched the greenhouse to see what might be the cause of such a tragedy.

"Well I hope no one was trying to practice some new spells on these poor plants today." She was certain they weren't, but she couldn't help but wonder with so many looking so dead. "If you were and you tell the truth maybe we can just fix it before anyone else sees." A spell might be easier than if they were dying for another reason.


She wondered if June had seen, could they be infected with something?

Violet jumped at the sound of Professor Euka's voice and whirled around. "I think they were like this when we got here, Professor. At least...no one's done anything since I arrived. The plants are just all dying...except for that one." She gestured with her head toward the very suspiciously healthy plant.

follow me; everything is all right.

As the students and professor investigated the dead and dying plants, something strange began to happen. The withered plants, despite their haggard appearance, began to emit a soft light.

How odd. Usually plants absorb light, but these wilted plants were glowing.

Ash was offended that the professor would think she'd kill plants. But she didn't care THAT much. What was she going to do, take away 200 points if Ash didn't confess? She didn't seem like the type to do that. Hm. "Whatever it is, it's not normal." That was about the only thing she was sure of. Plants did not act like this normally. Was the new plant hurting the others? It seemed plausible, but how could something so beautiful be bad?

The dying plants were glowing now??? "This is definitely a magical problem." Obviously. So, Ash did what was normal for such situations... she gently touched one of the dying, glowing plants. Yeah. If you see something dead, and it's also doing weird magic things, you should definitely touch it.

Hearing Bella's question, Evan went to offer to go and fetch Professor Flamsteed but then his attention was diverted to Violet when she responded. "I'm not actually sure what it is... I suppose we should have asked when we were planting them all." But there was such unspoken pressure to be on best behaviors, it had seemed a poor idea to do any questioning of the Board. "It's not that odd if the Board had brought soil as well and we introduced something new to the rest of the plants. It might just have taken some time for them to adjust to it and now it's showing that it's made them unhealthy." But again, another question for Professor Flamsteed.

Which again, he was going to offer to find her but Professor Euka had arrived and it seemed easier to let the Professor's then handle it. "The plants were like this when I arrived as well Professor. I think maybe we gave them all some bad soil when the new plants were put in." But that was only one theory and probably the incorrect one.

...... Wait a second. Were the plants now glowing? "That... seems weirder."

As Violet noticed several of the other students looking back toward the plants, she turned her attention the same way to see what they were looking at. Glowing? The plants were emitting light! That was not normal, she was pretty sure. "Oh, Great Merlin, they're glowing! It's some kind of spell--we need to get out of here!" Violet's tolerance for strange occurrences at Hogwarts had worn pretty think the past few years, and now she automatically assumed anything strange was dangerous.

When Professor Euka showed up unannounced Bella opened her mouth to speak but quickly in disbelief and a feeling of offence closed it. It wasn't like her divination professor to just go straight to accusing them all of being responsible of if in this case the state of the wilthering and dying plants.

Bella forced herself to speak, eyes focusing on Professor Euka "None of us have practied any spells on these plants, we promise professor Euka. We just came in here and found these plants except one in dreadful states, and were trying to figure out how to help the plants get better." It was the honest truth at least for her.

When the plants started to glow in front of her, Bella took several steps back in precaution and asked nobody in particular worriedly. "Is it normal for plants to glow like that?"

This was very strange, Meda walked closer to investigate the plants and touched one. How strange indeed. Turning as the students started talking she looked at the plant that was pointed out to be alive, "Interesting. I don't think the board brought any soil, we used the soil we had. At least I think that was how it worked. " She thought for a moment and stepped back with a gasp when she saw the glowing.

"No, no, these are certainly not to be doing this. I am assuming maybe a spell was used." She wasn't trying to blame them but she did eye all of them curiously. "Could someone run off and grab Professor Flamsteed for me." She wasn't sure what to even try on them without knowing more about what was going on and she was hoping Professor Flamsteed might help.

"While we wait for the Herbology Professor why don't we all step back away from the plants and keep cautious for now."

Violet didn't need to be told twice, or even once. She had already backed away and into the doorway, ready to make a run for it. After her experience with those candles last year, she wasn't taking any chances hanging around strange things.
