Sometimes I would like to just hit an arrow to see the next plant in the database. I'm not necessarily searching for anything, just curious what else might be there that I may never actively search for. Is that available and/or possible?

That's what got me thinking about this - I opened up a random plant, became intrigued, and wondered what else I was missing.

And speaking of random, is that a new feature I see? "Random Multi-Plant" or am I just slow to notice? Nice!

If you want to see lots of random plants, just keep refreshing the page and you'll see a new one each time the page is reloaded.

@zuzu is this still true? Exactly which page should I be on before I hit refresh?

@dave if this is not true, I would like to request a feature where I can click one link and get a new full-size random multi-plant photo each time. This would be a sort of "Next Random Multi-plant Image" link or something, instead of having to go back to the main page and click on thumbnails each time. Download speeds are not a problem for me, so I would like to skip thumbnails wherever possible.

Yeah but that's a lot of clicking back and forth to see the full sized images.
I'd like to have a link that will send me to a new random full size multi-plant photo with one click. Is that doable?

Not at this time but I guess it wouldn't be too hard to do. Really I'd need to figure out where to put it. Smiling

If it happens, awesome. If it doesn't, that's okay too.
Regardless, I appreciate your responsiveness!

Yay! Hurray! Let me just send a message to my boss right now that I'll be accomplishing nothing for the rest of the day... because I'll be ogling everyone's gardens! Sticking tongue out

Thank you, Dave!

Are you going to do this for the Random Plant images, too? That would be fun as well. Smiling
