    I made a big boo boo today, brought some tropical grasses home and decided to treat them for snails first.

    I part filled a bowl with boiling water and salt then as I ran to check on what my little one was doing I asked my partner to top the rest up with cold.
    She missheard me and filled the rest of the bowl from the kettle.

    When I came back in I dropped the plants in the bowl and instantly heard the hissing sound as they got scalded in the water :(

    I poured them out onto the drainig board then instantly put them into the basin of Declor'd water I had but I fear all is lost.

    Is there any point in planting them now or should I chuck them out and get more?

    Cheers, chris

    Yes its worth a try. I have accidentally bleached plants. Not long mind you, and most of them dropped all their leaves and grew new ones.
