What's the Plan for this Wiki?

Well as of the start of this wiki, it is just I, Khono.

Try adding more information for already created pages. For example, if you know of a good site, link pages to a specific plant to that plant's wiki page here.

To write a new article, just enter the article title in the box below.

Try making the page for a plant you know. Be sure it's legal to post whatever content you're posting. Wikimedia Commons is a nice source. Try adding links to that specific plant from reliable sites, like Plants for a Future or Wikipedia. I've build a simple (and rather ugly) template to follow for common links like those from Wikipedia, PFAF, eflora, and USDA as well as one for youtube vids. Simply copy the appropriate section under the External Links header and fill in the links in the appropriate section. To see what it should look like, check out the Typha latifolia page.

The organization for external links is very poor and needs to be improved. If you're interested in creating a template for this, try checking out the current template here. Currently, links to a few primary pages and links to youtube videos are the most common links, with occasional other kinds of links.
