Plant Swap (Creative Mornings Field Trip)
March 12 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM EDTFree
Calling out to all houseplant enthusiasts!
Much like a clothing swap, the plant swap brings people together to swap their, you guessed it, plants! In the spirit of trading, bring a plant (or multiple if you have) to trade for a plant you might have wanted, or maybe have never seen before. The plants can be brought potted or bare-root, but make sure they can be safely transported. Though it does help if you have something to contribute, do not shy away from attending if you don’t have a plant yet — we can help you start or continue growing your indoor plant collection.
Come away from this with a new plant you’re excited to care for, and perhaps some new plant-parent friends to drool over luscious Monsteras with!
Some plant propagation notes for the first-timers:
1. Be sure to look up where and how to cut/separate a piece of your specific plants to ensure their new plant parent can get the roots going! I recommend looking up a YouTube video for guidance. Just Google * insert plant name here * propagation. Summer Rayne Oakes has a fantastic channel with lots of propagation info!
2. If you’re like, alright cool, but I don’t know the name of my plant?! Try a plant identification app, like PlantSnap
3. Still can’t figure out the name of your plant? Feel free to send me a message on my Instagram, @aspaceshipearth, and we can try to figure it out together!
