Although pleasant to look at, plants have a penchant for stealing humans’ precious carbon dioxide and replacing it with oxygen, which most people can get for free anyway. Keep these carbon-thieving crooks within eyesight with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a holiday-poinsettia plant package at Plant Farm in Spokane Valley (up to a $22.99 value). Because of the limited growing season, this Groupon expires on December 8. Customers can choose one of the following holiday plant packages when they arrive at Plant Farm:
- 6.5” poinsettia in a holiday basket with mylar paper, bow, glitter, and holiday insert
- 12” handle basket with one 6” poinsettia, three foliage plants, mylar, and bow
- 8” poinsettia with a pot cover and bow<p>
Plant Farm’s full-service garden center sits on 20 sprawling acres of farmland, which yield an annual army of 40,000 poinsettias that are nestled in holiday baskets to bring seasonal joy with a choice of 22 colors of flowing petals. Mylar paper sheaths the plant’s base, keeping it warm and happy atop mantles, dining tables, and lackluster car hoods. Topped with a bow and glitter, patrons can eschew the typical plant beautification ritual of a wig and fake eyelashes.
Customers can preview poinsettias during an open-house tour, in which friendly staffers whisk guests through the greenhouse and grounds of festive foliage. During the trek, explorers sip on complimentary warm cider and hot coffee while enjoying refreshments. The tours commence on the hour at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. on November 11, 12, 18, and 19.
