Too much of a good thing?

Resurrection fern welcomes rain storms …

Except in the cases of exceptionally strong winds.

Here's a curious case of a floating air plant!

Lack of rain causes them to shrivel and dry on the vine. But all it takes is for a few sprinkles of rain to green them up into a lush display which grows and turns greener by the storm until, waterlogged and heavy a haphazard burst of blustery wind knocks it down into the water of the knee-deep swamp below.

In layman’s language we call that …

Too much of a good thing.
