Just a quick question, does anyone actually use the Plantbase?

Would like some feedback about it since no one as ever suggested a plant profile to add to it.

Cheers

Hi @LondonDragon

I looked at Plantbase just a couple of days ago but it didn't have the information that I was looking for. Specifically, I was unable to find anything about recommended pH range and water hardness range.

Hey @LondonDragon I find using Plantbase a little bit dangerous to my pocket - whenever I look through it I always find some excuse to buy more plants.

But how the suggesting of a profile works? Just send a request to mods or what?

Agree with @jaypeecee BTW, it lacks some crucial info, I see water hardness as very important one.

I have tried, but I think the information for each plant isn't granular enough for my needs; i.e plant origin, not plant continent of origin.
