Question on the plants list feature? When you add a plant to your list do you have to check your categories box or will the system know what it is? For example I have sempervivum 'Abby" I want to add to my list, what happens if my category sempervivum didn't get checked.

Julia, I think you have to check which categorie(s) you want to use for each plant. For example, I might categorize one plant multiple ways - tree, native, medicinal. That way, I can bring up all my native plants to work on, or all my trees, or all my medicinal plants. Depends on how you use your categories. My sister categorizes by garden bed so she can just open her 'front shade' category and see all the plants she currently has in that bed. The nice thing is you can manipulate the categories to your own choosing.

On the other hand, if you just want to see a list of your semps and don't want to bother categorizing, you can ask to see your 'Haves' specific to the 'Sempervivum' genus. Or even all the 'Sempervivums' you have, used or have, or are on your wish list. Lots of ways to tweak the list how it best suits you.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
