This is one of the most fun activities that we do. This is how we do the Plant Swap: Each of us brings a plant (better to bring two) with a piece of paper attached to it explaining all the good qualities and details about cultivation. Chairs are placed in a circle with the plants in the center, then each person stands up and shows their plant and tells the group about it. After all have been presented, numbers are drawn and the game begins.
#1 takes a plant and places it in front of him or herself.
Then #2 can steal the plant from #1 or take a plant from the center. This continues down the line. Each plant can be stolen two times.
On the second steal the plant is safe and cannot be stolen again. When all have had their turn, #1 gets to steal one more time if so desired.
New members… don't have a plant ready?
No problem, we'll bring a few extra.
