One of the really great features at the Mulch is that we connect members by the plants they're interested in. As a member adds a plant to one of their lists we've made it very easy to communicate with other with the same plants.

Anytime you see a series of five numbers like this13*5*2*2*0 (as seen in the image below) it represents the five possible lists a plant could be on (My Plants, My Wishlist, My Recommendations,Troubled Plants,Plant Cemetery). If you hover your mouse over those numbers it will give you a little snapshot of how many people have put this plant (see blue box below).

If you click on the numbers it will take you to the Most Owned Plant list.  It's also possible to go directly to any of the other lists by using the main navigation as seen to the left.
