I'm getting ready to be able to show some work on the Plant List, but it's not something I want to publish for everyone to have access to, because I am certain there will be some bugs and a few features missing.

Who's interested in participating in a beta test of this?

I've added you three to my list, thanks.

I'd love to have a pretty good number - at least ten if possible.

Okay you beta testers, two things to try out:

1) Go to http://garden.org/lists/manage/ to play with adding new plants to your list.

Also

2) Go to any plant's entry in the DB, for example, this one: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Beautiful Jealous Eyes')

And on the right-side you'll see a blue button to add that plant to your list.

(These things only show up for beta tester, by the way. So if you're not seeing them, please ask me to add you to the group).

Have fun playing around with this, and let me know any feedback you have.

ok, very cool.

When you choose your plant and select the options. On that last pop up that says "your plant has been added, choose from the options below"
view your plant list
close

If you choose close, the plant isn't added to the list....you have to actually click on view your plant list for it to be added to the list

The first drop down list:
Have
want
used to have....will there eventually be other options? maybe if we have it we can add where in the garden it is...or if it's in the house....this would be a great tool for me to be able to keep track of my 150+ house plants as well as garden plants.
