The Plant Database (http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/myPlants.php) has been updated and now has many new features.

It however could benefit from some user input. There is now an option to upload additional photographs for each plant. Any photographs you have would greatly help us out. To upload simply browse the the correct plant and click "Upload Photo".

Also the plant database could do with some more plants. If you have experience with a plant species not already listed, please take the time and submit a profile:

Thank you,
Kyle

It's nice to see the "database" on the tool bar now. When clicking on "all plants" it only comes up with 5 or so plants on one page, and then I have to click on the other 5-6 pages to see the rest in sets of 5 plants. Is it possible to have all the plants listed on one page, so we could just scroll down. I think it would be easier to look up unidentified plants by looking at a long list of pictures and profiles, instead of 5 or so at a time.

Looks good!
I'm definitely going to try to get some decent shots to add images and perhaps fill in a gap or two!

Hey Luigi,
It was actually displaying 10 results per page. I changed it to display 25 results per page. I'll see how this does for awhile.

Eds,
I appreciate any help you are willing to offer! ;)

We appreciate everyones involvement with the plant data base thus far, keep those plant pictures and information coming.

I do ask that you please use only clear pictures, the highest quality you can take.
Thanks

A continued thanks for the photo's and especially the recent photo's submitted to the plant data base, the quality of the photos and of the plants themselves seem to be getting better, good job. :)
Thank you.

on the plant data base it would be nice to also see light requirements and if easy to grow or not for us plant-challenged, but it looks great.

oh, oh.
I was playing around with the drop down menu on the bottom and I chose 'Mobile'. The site is now formated for mobil devices.. And I can't format it back to normal.

Do I have to empty all of plantedtank's cookies?

I only wish that the required size information was in inches instead of metric, or both instead of only metric. It would be much easier for us simple minded folks.

Is it possible to add an offshoot of this database for Riparium suitable plants? I know of nothing available anywhere that serves that purpose right now. And, the number of riparium tanks in our group is growing.

A suggestion: in the navigation panel on the left make MORE SORTING OPTIONS. Personally I'd like something along the following lines:

tall
medium
short
carpet
high light
low light
medium light
etc

The database is very good if you have a specific plant in mind, but if you're looking to say stock your tank or are looking for a style of plant, basically your only option is to scroll through 175 plant profiles and read thru each comment to find out how big it gets/light requirements....in this case you're better off googling the style or something

There are some great suggestions here to help improve this database. I love the concept behind it though!!! What a great way to learn about different plants from the personal experiences of others out there.

Fyi, i just add a profile for a Scarlet Temple.
