Dave can we add 'Webbing' to the photo entry 'What kind of image is this'?

What is webbing as it pertains to plants?

It's on some succulents and cacti and it looks just the way you'd expect, like a spider web on the top of the plant.

Like this. Some are even heavier with webbing.

Does this appear on other kinds of plants, as well? I'm hesitant about adding this as an option for all the images because it seems like a situation that only appears on a specific kind of plant.

The galleries weren't meant to describe exactly every kind of possible image. That's what the caption is for. Smiling

I will research to see what other type of plants would have webbing/cilia.

Wouldn't that be suitable for just the semps for right now? If you have it only appear in the that database then it wouldn't confuse anyone if it's within the generic plant details. I don't think there is a parent page for cactus as there are so many different genus within that category so that may not be an issue right now.

There are many high alpine plants having this feature. For example, Saussurea gossipiphora blows those semps away with its webbing. The webbing is a defense against ice and moisture. This one actually blooms within the webbing with the pollinators finding their way in through a little hole in the top of the webbing.

But we don't have any photos of those plants, so how useful would a webbing gallery be?

I don't think Lynn is asking for a webbing gallery, just for the option of "Webbing" added to the photo entry 'What kind of image is this'? Dave asked if there were other plants besides semps that have this feature and I am saying yes with some examples though I don't know if either of these are in commerce. We do have alpine gardeners, Leftwood being one.

I think the ability to choose different galleries to view is the ultimate goal of the choice of options, unless I'm mistaken.

Zuzu's reference to a gallery was correct. That's the term we use to describe which kind of photo you are uploading.

My fear is that we don't want that list to get too long. It wasn't meant to be really long with a lot of options. Really, it was originally just intended to be a handful of choices and let the caption serve to give any further detail.

I'd like to leave Webbing off as an option. If you're posting a photo of a plant with webbing, you should enter "Entire Plant" or "Leaves" or whatever you're zoomed in on, and if you want to add a caption talking about the webbing then that would be good.

Connie that is truly an amazing amount of webbing. The semp collectors would pay big bucks for that kind of webbing.

I know there are some cactus, and in the past I have come across other plants that have amazing webbing. Just can't remember the names. *Blush*

I realized later that you were referring to the photo addition, not the actual entry so ignore my post. Rolling my eyes.

We do have webbing under Leaves, in the semp database, so you are correct Sue. Big Grin
