A place for observations of planted plants

There is now a new set of projects for Planted (not wild) observations accessible here : https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/planted-in-naturemap-countries

One of the issues that we are coming across with this effort to improve the data on wild flowering plants is that a lot of observations of plants that are planted (not naturally occurring) still need to be tagged. iNaturalist rules that even exotic species are eligible for Research Grade, but only if they have spread themselves (eg the seedling of a planted tree). There are quite a few planted specimens turning up as Research Grade in the Naturemap collection projects.

If you are marking up an observation of a pot plant or a street tree as 'not wild', it would be super if you also point the users to the appropriate project - e.g. "Your observation will appear in the new project https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/planted-in-india , where users can help one another to identify garden and house plants, street trees, crops and so on. Please do feel free to join. "
