Since becoming a member it has been much easier for the names to roll off my tongue. If I spot a plant in an ad, or on product packaging, a calendar or out on a walk I see if the botanical name will quickly come to mind. Knowing and using the botanical names makes it easier to communicate with members in other countries, too.

Our members have a positive attitude. I like that everyone is nice to each other; they always try to be helpful, offer good answers and advice and are willing to use the @ to get the attention of someone who may provide more information.

I only follow 6 or 7 of the forums; any more than that I would be on here 24/7/365. Rolling on the floor laughing

I know what you mean about the botanical names! The more you see them the more comfortable you get with them. I love saying them real fast so it sounds like I know what I'm talking about! Hilarious!
