Want to find new plants for your collection? Looking to trade houseplants that don't bring you joy anymore? Bring in your healthy plants or rooted cuttings on Earth Day for a plant swap.
Participants can bring up to three potted plants or cuttings for the swap. Each cutting or plant brought in will be awarded a ticket for trading. There will be no repotting at the event. All plants should be in containers they can go home in. Cuttings need to be in a sealed plastic baggie with a damp paper towel. Please label plants and cuttings with the type of plant being swapped. We ask that houseplants and cuttings be healthy and pest free as a courtesy to other plant lovers.
Plant and cutting check-in begins at 1 pm. The swap begins at 1:45 pm, with the earliest check-ins getting first pick. At 2:30 pm all plants must go, and anything unselected will NOT need a ticket for purchase. Questions about the swap can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
