  • Give them a day or so to recover.

  • If they're still hanging in there, some of them may survive, but I would get them up & out of the wet as soon as possible so as to avoid root rot from them sitting in so much water. If they're in peat pots, set them up on cooling racks or something to let the air circulate around the base of the pots & get them drying out faster. If they're not, then drain off as much of the excess water as you can and get some air circulating around the plants to try to evaporate more of the water away. Then just watch them & hope like crazy they survive their drenching.
