Have you knowledge of a particular plant? If so then you can easily add this information to a plant's page. For example do you know how much sun your favourite plant requires?

Click it and you will be able to choose the correct value/s for this plant's sun requirements. Click 'Save' and voila, you have just performed your first plant edit!
