How do you add a plant from the data base to a thread you are posting?

If you want to link the database entry for a plant, there are a couple of ways to do it. One is to simply copy and paste everything out of the address bar at the top of it's web page:

Intermediate Bearded Iris (Iris 'Bottled Sunshine') (I added a period before so you can see how it looks)

Alternatively, near the bottom of each plant's page, there is a line that says "ATP BB Code:", Just copy and paste the numbers below it into your post.

Intermediate Bearded Iris (Iris 'Bottled Sunshine')

[plant]73609[/plant.] (added a period before the ] mark so it would show)

You can also insert individual pictures of a plant into your posts. Click on any picture of a plant in the database and you'll see a line just above the image that also says "ATP BB Code:"
