Via zoom, conversation was very informal and not role specific. It seemed as if they were just starting to reintroduce hybrid work and unsure how the management style was going to work.

I'm trying to get into gardening and bought some pots from IKEA. One is a typical pot with the dish at the bottom and the other one isn't. For the one that doesn't have the hole at the bottom and dish (I apologize, not sure if they have specific names), can I grow anything in it? If yes, what will work for that or will any plant do? Thanks!!
