I had a dream that during a tornado warning, my pet plants all fell apart as I moved them to the basement. And then I was too busy panicking over my plants to pay attention to the weather. Actual thunder irl may have been providing the sound effects. Then I was in another building altogether with my plants still, and I was trying to propagate what was left of them but they were wilting before my eyes.
Oh dear, it sounds like you've experienced a great upwelling of the unconscious in your dream. You had to escape a natural disaster, representing cataclysm and/or great change... Something causing a need for sheltering, and thus, descending into an underground chamber, symbolic of the initiatory journey of descending into darkness within and overcoming some great challenge, to then emerge reborn, in a foreign but higher state. Plants are here symbolic of the vegetable state of material development; the evolution of matter from mineral to primitive life, and the nervous system of man. The falling apart of your plants is the departure of the less dense, vegetative state of man into the denser, individuated state of the animal man... you tried to save what was because it is still part of us all, but must be let go in order for the higher development to continue. All the while, catastrophe threatens this evolution...
