    Greetings Plantery Contributors!

    The purpose of this board is for APSA members to contribute photo's of aquatic plants in both their emersed and submersed states.

    If you have taken a photograph of a plant that does not appear in the Plantery (and you would like to contribute it), create a new thread with the correct species name of the plant. Please do not create different threads for each varietal of a particular species. This means that pictures of both Alternanthera reineckii 'rosaefolia' and Alternanthera reineckii 'lilacina' will both go into the Alternanthera reineckii thread. The moderation team will clean up the species names if necessary but let's try and keep them up to scratch.

    Remember: genus names are always capitalised and species names are never capitalised.

    So:
    • Alternanthera reineckii is correct.
    • alternanthera reineckii is incorrect
    • Alternanthera Reineckii is also incorrect.

    Obviously, if you have a new picture of a plant that already has a thread, post your pic in that thread. Every week or so I will upload any new pictures to the site, crediting the photograher with a watermark. If you want something else besides your APSA username to appear on the watermark, please specify it in your post.

    I hope this will become a valuable resource for South African aquatic plant enthusiasts.

    Kind regards,
    The APSA Team.

    Thanks Angus.

    I'm going to have to find a way to automatically sort these threads by subject so that we can find them easily.
