Her plants used to glow.

My obsessed hoarder mathematician spouse's cherished plants are not happy, and apparently nothing can be done to make them happy, and Crazy Dave will not sell her any new ones.

She has tried and failed to make her plants happy in the usual ways: she has tried watering them, spraying them, playing them music. Crazy Dave won't sell her more plants, even though she has a vacancy in her garden. Her only currently happy plant is one she was awarded as some kind of game trophy, and now that it is fully grown she fears it too will succumb to nameless ennui.
Reasons to care: she used to stroke the plants adoringly with her fingers, so proud that she could make them happy (unlike the many actual plants she has killed in her lifetime by, say, accidentally leaving them under her bed inside a drum majorette hat). She collected a fully stocked nursery, a night garden, even an underwater garden. I'd begun to dream of a future in which her collecting impulse radiated into virtual worlds, sublimating the drive for thift-store sewing machines, anvils, Fluevogs, and all such costly or bulky impedimenta.
Yes, I have tried searching video game fora. Probably ineptly, as I am a simple country feral_goldfish.
