We got this from a brand new member:


I must congratulate everyone at ATP for a most impressive Plant Database.


As far as the number of plants, we are far bigger than the so-called "largest online plant database".
The contributors are filling in details and photos as quickly as your little fingers can- and keeping us almost too busy approving them to fill in details ourselves!

A huge thanks and kudos to all of you!! The database is phenomenal thanks to your tireless efforts!! It's a lot of fun to now see new people and non-members starting to take notice!!

We're growing and growing!! I tip my hat to you.
NGA COO, Wife, Mom, and caretaker of 90 acres and all that dwell there.

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

The "largest online plant database" needs to change their boast. I realize they have more pictures, but we're quickly catching up, and ours are accurate.

Kudos to everyone that contributes anything to our wonderful database!
