|I was wondering if it would be a good idea to add a new feature to the leaf section of the database, and if so what the right exact wording should be.
Leaves - Glaucous (covered with a white powdery bloom)
This would apply to a great number of succulents and probably other plants too.
Also in the section about fruit, the botanists would probably be interested to see a way to indicate these features, which are useful to some of us who try to grow strange plants from seed.
Fruit - Dehiscent (breaks open when ripe to release seeds)
Fruit - Nondehiscent (does not break open when ripe)
One final thing which would apply to all the succulent Euphorbias that I grow, and probably other plants as well.
Fruit - Pops open explosively when ripe
(And shoots seeds to the four winds as a result, a conclusion that's good to know in advance.)
Thank you so much for keeping the database sorted out and maintained. It is a tremendous resource.
