Moving is hard work. And moving with a lot of house plants is even harder work.
Before I moved, I sold, gave away and in some cases tossed a lot of my plants since I was moving to a smaller place.
I also did not water them before the move as that would have been messy.
Put smaller plants in moving boxes. And if you’re moving when the climate is cold make sure to wrap them to prevent damage to the plants.
Don’t place your plants in a big moving truck, because it’s easy for them to break and fall over.
I recommend moving them in a car. I had to make a couple of trips by car but luckily none of them got damaged.

#0: Great advice. I will forward them to my daughter for her move next month. She too has way more plants than most people.
Unlike for you, the drive between her old and new home takes almost two hours, so the fewer times she has to make the trip, the better. 🙂
She told me many of her plants can't stand less than 19 degrees. I'm not sure how that will work out with outdoor temperatures around zero.

By the way, I like your floor. Is it waxed oak?

I know that it is oak but I am not sure if it is waxed. How can you tell?
