plants on board?

New Arrival

hi, first post here, so i'm not sure how to format this, but any advice would be nice and appreciated!


i just booked a flight from las vegas (LAS) to portland (PDX) in early may and i was wondering how the plants on board situation works for southwest. i know it's not really that important given our current covid situation, but the plants (two pothos, and a fern... that i could easily skim down to bringing just one pothos) are dear to me and i would like to know if they would have to be thrown out or anything after i get through TSA—and in that case, i would just not bring them with me. i could not find any information on whether southwest allows plants and the different restrictions they may have. i know that TSA allows them as carry on as long as they also go through security with me.

If TSA allows plants, so does Southwest.


Be sure you don't run afoul of the TSA rules on liquids.
