  1. Viewing a saved Plant page choose the Add/Remove to Collection button (desktop) or icon (mobile). A window opens to search for the collections or subcollections to add or remove a plant. Note: You can add the same plant to more than one collection and subcollection. 
  2. From the Collection page on the Plants tab choose the button Add/Remove Plants. A window opens to search for and select plants to add to this collection 
  3. Collections Adding Plants


You can create subcollections within a collection to further sort and organize your plants. 

From the collection page click the subcollections tab and Create Subcollection button. 


Collection Map: This shows all the plants within that collection that have location or  map pins. It also shows any subcollections that have location or map pins. If plant, collection, or subcollections location map pins have been marked private then this map is only displayed to you or an organization’s owner and admins.
