What is plant swap
A Plant Swap is simply an event where fellow plant owners can come together to swap their plants. This could be done anywhere—like someone's home, a public park or community garden, a church or community center, or even a local business, which is where we will have ours (The Studio at shipping container market Stackt Market).
What to bring
● House plants, succulents / cacti, veggie starters / mature plants, perennials / annuals, ROOTED cuttings (even a tiny little root is good, shows that the cutting is indeed growing!), aquatic plants, and bulbs
● Clearly label your plants
● Put your plant in a container with soil or water; wrap bare roots carefully
● The more you bring, the more you’ll take home with you
● Avoid bringing invasive plants, plants with pests infestation, unhealthy plants or unrooted cuttings
● No cannabis

How does the swap work
We’ll be swapping in rounds. Here’s how it works:
Round 1: Use only 1 stick, place it in a plant you want most.
When everyone has used their first stick, we sort out who gets what plant. If the plant only has one stick, it’s yours! If the plant has multiple sticks, we’ll do a random draw, one lucky winner will get the plant, and the other sticks will be returned to whoever placed them, and they then get to choose another plant. The round ends when all have used one stick, and there are no more plant with multiple sticks.
Round 2: Use 2 sticks.
Round 3: Use 3 sticks.
It goes on until all sticks/plants are gone.
