I have added a "Add this plant to your list" button to your "Images uploaded by you" page.

Go to your profile, then click to view the images you've added to the DB. Each entry will have a button you can click to add it. This should make it a little easier. Smiling

This could be a bit more complicated... one of the trade/sell options is for seed of a plant. Is there a way to include hybrid seed that would require listing of both parents? This would be used by hybridizers for lilium, iris, daylily etc.

The user would need to be able to list a pod parent and a pollen parent (for named parents maybe this could be clickable). For second and higher generations, fillable. Or all fillable maybe. It would have to be flexible, kind of like the discussion about where a plant is located in the yard (such as a comment box for additional information about the seeds).

I'm just tossing this around in my head right now but wanted to touch base.

I think for that, the solution is to add the parent plant as a "Have" item and then in the Comments field explain what you have.

After you add your plant, it's in the Lists management area.

I just tried out the new list! Hurray! I tip my hat to you.

Would it be possible to have two things on the pop up for adding plants
1) buttons for private/ public. I have had daylilies that I might want to hide from view. There is the "guy" Jack the Digger who has been known to come steal expensive new intro daylilies... Angry

And,
2) a place to add comment. It would be good if there were public/private comments too. I might want to track things in my personal comments that I would not want everyone to see.
