    I'm working on the plant databases for both Terrarium and Aquarium plants and would like some feedback and suggestions.

    I've decided you utilise the xenforo resource manager that was installed a while back.

    A quick example

    https://glassboxgardeners.com/resources/anthurium-scandens.4/

    I have more work to do but you get the idea :)

    What would you like to see, what ideas do you have ?

    Thanks for reading
    Jason

    Looks like you have put in many hrs of hard work to get that up and running.

    Will you be selling in the UK only or off shore?

    Thankyou both :)

    Lots more to come, including a search feature based on the fields, light requirements, plant type, position, etc..

    Any body with photos of plants please post them here, more the better :)

    I would like to add icons that represent the features but that will require a lot of work to intergrate, maybe at a later date.

    I would also like a more detailed description so I'm hoping members can assist here.

    Any suggestions/ideas are welcome.

    I do have the terrarium plants I have listed and more for sale to the UK only at the moment but I plan on Europe aswell, the trouble this time of the year is the cold temps and delivery time outside of the UK delivery costs a lot for next day stuff.

    Just for everyone's reference, I will be using the forum donations and sponsor money to make these databases as good as I can, investing it back into the site.

    Other ideas include fish database, reptile & Amphibian databases, obviously all this will come over time due to the amount of work Involved.

    If anybody would be interested to work with me on this it would be a great help.

    Thanks
    Jason

    level of difficulty:
    beginner / intermediate / advanced
    or easy / normal / hard - or so...

    how fast the plant grows...

    how to propagate them...

    temperature

    ┬░dKH

    Have also a look at flowgrow - the plant database there is also very useful:
    They have a possibility where you can fill in the conditions the plants you are looking for should tolerate
    and the programm will spit out the suiting plants...
