I've been putting in details for plants that I see pop up on the random plant and two things I've noticed. There's a lot of plants that need moist, but not boggy/wet feet soil. Can you add that to the list? There's a listing for xeric/dry, but nothing for moist, yet not boggy (and, as you well know, there's a world of difference between moist & boggy). Another thing is a listing for attracting insects other than flutterbys & bees. A lot of these pitcher plants I've found use stinky to get pollinated, so they attract ants/flies. But there's no way to put that in the system.

What does everyone thing, or am I just going looloo?

Sounds like a good idea to me. I just had a situation in which I did not know whether it should be kept wet or allowed to dry out.

Attracts "pests" would make sense too.


Edited to correct attracts vs Attacks LOL

Also, how about putting something along the lines of if it's lumber / textile?
