To use as a game: take the deck apart, lay them out, and try to guess the plant. Names are printed on the back so you can see how many you guessed correctly. Play with family and friends or solitaire. Cards do not have playing card symbols so I could fit as much information as possible onto each card.
Deck 2 contains some toxic plants to help prevent mistakes in identification. All toxic plant cards have a red skull and crossbones on the back as a warning.
