    My new goal is to make a nice in depth description for each of the 500+ plant species.varieties, hybrids etc commonly kept.


    1. Several pictures of each plant in various stages of growth and specific highlights.


    2. Gardening aspects. This includes trimming for ease of labor and also trimming for ease of long term good looking gardening, labor is secondary.


    3. Physiology/horticultural growth parameters observed


    4. Ecology


    5. I likely will add other topics specific to the plant type

    Would any pictures show a typical problem child, i.e., a plant with poor growth patterns?


    I'll submit some of mine. Come on people, immortalized as a before picture is still something.
    :D

    I'd love to see something on how to identify these and all the other plants that are so easy to confuse with each other. So we know if we have the real deal. The variations of anubias barteri, rotala rotundifolia, etc. So many look alike.

    I was thinking and one thing that would be cool is if you had a sound bite on how to pronounce each one. I often wonder if I'm saying them correct.

    I would like to see the recommended parameters for the plants if that is possible. Complete information on plants is lacking on many sites.

    I look forward to this. Lots of databases around the interwebs, Most of the ones Ive seen, while helpful, are woefully lacking in the number of plants listed, and especially in the finer points of the # 2-5 categories.

    Great news everyone!, the plant database will be open for all to input however you cannot plagiarize or steal pictures, this must be your own experience and own work. Its all subject to editing of course though. Sort of like wiki. So if you know a plant you've mastered once we start the database, I encourage you guys to contribute. :p ;) :)

    For now we are going to use the articles feature of the forum. Use the link called plant database in the header.


    In the future we have plans to add a dedicated plant database feature that will allow you to select and search fields such as difficulty, plant type, light requirements etc.


    If someone has a full 500+ list of plant species that i can use please contact me.


    Thanks
