Its simple - find the plant in our Plant Encyclopedia and click the "ADD" button for the appropriate list. You have five choices of lists - My Plants, My Wish list, My Recommendations, Troubled Plants and Plant Cemetery.

Step One: Find the Plant in the Plant Encyclopedia. There are two ways - Here's the First - Hover your mouse over Plants, then click Plant Encyclopedia and you'll land on this page (as shown below). Put the name (either Botanical or Common) in the search box and hit GO.

The results will come in the form of a list like this - simply click the ADD button and your Plant will be added to the appropriate list on your My Profile page. Once you've added the plant you'll be able to use all the cool features mentioned above!

Important note: It's possible to add as many plants to as many lists, all from the same page! So when you search for "Salvia", you may get 100 results, now you can add all of them from one page! Just click on as many of the "Add" buttons from any of the lists, they will all be immediately added to your lists.

Hint: If you want to add multiple plants, use a general term to search in order to get more results. For instance if you search for "Salvia" you may get a list of over 100 plants, then you can add all of the Salvia that are on the list.

Plant Encyclopedia (three ways to search for plants)

We have over 85,000 plants in our Plant Encyclopedia. They don't all have complete information, but we're working on it all the time. As you can imagine it's a big job, as new plants are found and created all the time. The main feature of the Plant Encyclopedia is to make it possible for you to ADD the plants to your plant lists (and therefore be automatically connected to new information as it comes available).

There are three ways to search our Plant Encyclopedia; by Common or Botanical name, by Plant Attribute, or Alphabetically by Botanical Name.

To find the Plant Encyclopedia hover your mouse over Plants - Plant Encyclopedia and you'll see your options. If you click on the Search by Name you'll be taken to a search page (see below).

 

We Can't Stress this Enough: If you Add the Plants you own, or are interested in, to one of your plant lists then you are automatically connected to that plant - and as we get new research, photos, plant care instructions, special offers or anything else related to that plant you won't have to search all over the internet to find it, it will be right on your My Profile page waiting for you!
