You get an acorn for each photo you post to each specific gallery of each plant.
So if you post 3 photos of a "Bloom" of a particular plant, you get one acorn.
But if you post 1 photo of a bloom, one photo of the leaves, one photo of the trunk, one photo of the seeds, you would get one acorn for each of them.
