or alternatively, using a plant name to find out what a plant is. I see things pop up in the sell/wanted section and I a) often have no idea what's in my tank and b) often have no idea what they're asking for! So the question is, where do you start. I know the tropica website is a good start for most name->plant identification but they don't always have all the species. If you Google a name you get about 10 different possibilities! Then there's the matching it with what's in my tank, other than bugging you guys with photos of plants is there a relatively easy way of finding out what a plant is. Sometimes I know the genus (eg Cryptocoryne) but don't know which one it is, other times I don't even know that! Maybe as I find out about various plants I ought to build up one of those 'does it have red leaves' flow chart identification tools!
