    I am interested to know what other growers use to catalogue their carnivorous plants. Currently I am using an excel spreadsheet, but I would like to use something that is tailor made for plants - that would include all information for particular clones and include photographs. Are there commercial programs available?

    Kind regards from NZ

    I do not know of a commercially available plant database geared towards cps. I have setup a basic database in Appleworks for cps. However, the database is still a work in progress.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    That is a great idea!! Perhaps someone can make up a PC friendly template and share the file here.

    I use Microsoft word. It's just a list of plants nothing at all fancy. If somebody could make something like what Nick has for pc I would be willing to pay for it. That would be very useful, and it would be alot easier to keep track of your plants. If somebody does creates this for pc please contact me.

    I'd also pay. I like Nick's idea, but I think either the plant in the corner should be a thumbnail clickable, or the photo should be on the bottom so it can be bigger.

    Howdy.

    I've been considering setting up something similar to this format online as a side piece to the trading post. where you could maintain your growlist, upload photos, etc. It would maintain your collection, setup a photogallery and could be used to show what you have for trade and what you want. If there is interest I will go ahead and work on it.

    cheers

    I think that could really help people who don't have their own site, but for me, I'd like a template file where I could have something like that on my own site. Also, I think it would be nice for us to start linking our sites to each others to help with rankings, etc..
