I guess the idea is supposed to be that many little plants (the real plants)
form "one" "big" plant when you look at it together.

center property (unlike nativity scenes).

Pita is a subcategory of bread, so he can just add a root pertaining to
"pocket" or "slit" or "two" to further specify his five-letter word for bread

hippies, "ajy" (dirty) or "aty" (high).
