Update on the MOVE - First of all, don't do
it. Don't move. Stay where you are. That's my best advice.

Yesterday my seven foot Podocarpus (Chinese Evergreen) made the move
from the NY house where it has spent most of the past 25 years, to the
house in PA where we are relocating. It took about half the truck for space.
Way back about 1975, I bought three rooted cuttings in a single pot, 4
inches tall, at Woolworth's for 75 cents. I divided them into separate
pots, and by the time I moved from Apalachin to Marathon NY in 1977, the
two survivors were about three feet tall. In short order they grew to ceiling
height and I had to dispose of one. The remaining one I shear with the
clippers every few years to keep it within reasonable bounds, and it needs
it again before it can come into the house here. It moved to my New Jersey
apartment with me in the 1980s while I worked there and back to the house
in Marathon after that. The husband and both dogs who moved with me 25
years ago have died, but the Podocarpus endures. It will probably outlive
me, too. It froze once when the electricity went off when we were away
from home - No problem. It's a tough thing. Anyway, it is now in PA, so
this must be home. The movers will bring the big things on the 17th to
19th and, in the meantime I am shuffling back and forth with the rest.
Home is where the cat, the dog, and the indestructible Podocarpus are.
Another of life's transitions is underway.
