It's December and we're holding a fun activity that will have you exploring the forums, finding photos that have been posted, and associating those photos with plants in the database. Open to find out more!

I'm a little concerned that a photo which I 'borrowed' from the original poster in the ID forum has been added to the database using my name.

I cropped the photo and reduced the glare in order to show the hairs on leaves.



The photo belongs to supermaroon, I would feel happier to see the photo credited to their name.

The photo was imported from the ID thread with your name attached to it. In the meantime, the same photo (uncropped) and another from that same thread were posted in a different entry.

Plectranthus (Plectranthus forsteri 'Marginatus')

I can delete the one with your information. That's no problem, but I have to wonder whether the other two photos are in the right place.

Thanks zuzu. I very much doubt it is Plectranthus forsteri 'Marginatus' which has ruffled white edges. It's more likely to be the one I suggested, but that isn't for certain.

Oh, yes, I see. There's nothing ruffly about those edges. I think I'll move the photos to the Plectranthus generic page until there's a definite ID.
