I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but I have had difficulty with something. Under any plant name, if you go to Edit Details, there's a list of things to check off or fill in. Some categories have 'Other' listed. I was trying to put in something about the leaves of one plant using 'Other'. If you check 'Other' off, nothing was popping up to fill in. Trying to click on the word 'Other' made the fill-in part show up, but immediately it would disappear. Just a little thing, but I wonder if that could be made easier, please.

I've never heard of this happening, but I suspect that your web browser (which is, unfortunately, old and very out of date) doesn't support some of the advanced features of the site, like the snazzy other drop-down box.

Have you ever considered trying out Firefox or Chrome? They are both fantastic modern browsers that work flawlessly on all modern websites.

Well, I haven't been able to download Firefox...which I once used to have. DH said something about firewalls...I'm not very technologically advanced, to know if that's it or not. Of course, my being slow on a tech level is why I have an old browser. I haven't found a newer one that doesn't drive me crazy.
