Feedback for my botany app idea

As a pet project I wanna make a botany smartphone app, mainly to learn some code stuff.

My idea is for 'flash cards' to help users learn to identify common flowering plant families.

So, the app will show a picture of a sunflower, then ask a multiple choice question. Like, Rosaceae, Boraginaceae, Asteraceae, or Lamiaceae?

If the user is stuck, they can view hints that tell them the common flower patterns for the various families.

It will then give feedback, and progress to another flower.

What do you think? I've only just got into botany stuff myself, so maybe this wouldn't translate.

If you have any other small botanically app ideas, I'm all ears too.

It would only be for Android unfortunately.

Thanks!

Any idea what this could be? Leaves are huge and the plant is 6ft tall. Some neighboring plants were twice as big but were flowering and looked like they were about to die. Flowers are tiny and purple at the end of long stalks. I’ll post more pictures below.

Do you β€œrevel in your geekery?”

Patrick Rothfuss said β€œyou’re a geek for somethingβ€”revel in your geekery” in response to Tolkien being β€œa language geek” and inventing a bunch of language, GRRM’s fascination with heraldry and food, and Rothfuss himself being β€œa geek for currency” with an elaborate currency system.

What are your thoughts on what can essentially be going off on tangents about certain subjects? Perhaps infodumping paragraphs about metallurgy or ornithology might not be advisable, but what about sprinkling details throughout the work solely for the sake of β€œit’s my book, I’m putting in [geeky subject]?” (GRRM) You’re not β€œdumping” the info, but clearly you have a thing about that specific topic.

Does it come off as making a more in-depth, immersive world, or even possibly the author showing off? Do you like the details, or just ignore them, if not hate them?

Diana Gabaldon gives a list of plants in Outlander that honestly I just skimmed over: >β€œLooking for that plant,” I answered, sticking a finger between the pages to mind my place. β€œThe one I saw in the stone circle. See …” I flipped the book open. β€œIt could be in the Campanulaceae, or the Gentianaceae, the Polemoniaceae, the Boraginaceaeβ€”that’s most likely, I think, forget-me-notsβ€”but it could even be a variant of this one, the Anemone patens.” I pointed out a full color illustration of a pasqueflower. β€œI don’t think it was a gentian of any kind; the petals weren’t really rounded, but—”

And Seth Dickinson names a bunch of birds (though not as list-y) in The Traitor Baru Cormorant (apparently birds are an important part of the bookβ€”given Diana’s PhD thesis on birds, I would be surprised if she doesn’t do the same). >The wind off the sea lifted flocks of scaups and merganser ducks, gangs of bristle-throated alawa giving two-toned calls, egrets and petrels and frigate birds, and high above great black jaegers like wedges of night. She tried determinedly to count them and keep all the varieties straight.

I think I’ve named birds once or twice in the ~130k words I’ve written so far, and you probably would think that my world doesn’t have flowers. If I do get more specific about things, I try to limit the list to three examples, but I’m not sure what would be the best method of β€œreveling in my geekery.” The second paragraph of my first draft named a bunch of conlangs and their historical significant and how they changed over the years (POV character is a linguistics professor), but I removed it from the second

SG students' diary 20130328 Moa

Title: Flower Girl MoaMoa

Flower Girl MoaMoa

It's Moa who is all smiles thinking about tomorrow's Graduation ceremony live showπŸ’• Besides, all members made a promise: you can't cry tomorrow, even if you want to! If someone cries, they'll have to treat everyone 1 bottle of juice per person! Everyone too, if you cry - send juice!(lol)

Usually, in Flower Girl MoaMoa I choose a flower and then examine language of flower! But this time, I wondered: "What are the birth flowers of 31st of March and what do they mean in language of flower?" and examined.

🌸31st of March🌸

Birth flowers ...γ€€β‘ Nigella

β‘‘Borage - It's known as herb!

β‘ Nigella .. Ranunculaceae

Language of flower .... confusion

β‘‘Borage ... Boraginaceae

Language of flower .... to excite heart

There were other birth flowers of 31st of March, but I chose these 2 flowers!!

Nigella's meaning - confusion - perfectly describes Moa's heart. Definitely, everyone in Sakura Gakuin are confused with Su~chan's graduation too...πŸ’¦ But, we will drive away the confusion with dancing and singing!

Borage's meaning - to excite heart - that's exactly how Graduation ceremony will be!! I think, we will be exciting hearts on the 31st of March over and over again!

Look forward to the 31st - tomorrow~πŸ’•

[article] Folk Medicine Plants From Mexico And Central America Found To Have Anti-Cancer Potential

The stem and root extracts of certain native plants from Mexico were discovered to be possible sources of cancer treatment, according to a study published in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicines. A team of researchers from the Technological University of the Mixteca and the University in Mexico in Mexico studied the potential anti-cancer effects of eight folk medicinal plants from Mexico.

The University’s research team explored the potential anti-cancer properties of eight native plants that belong to six botanic families, namely Asteraceae, Rubiaceae, Euphorbiaceae, Nictaginaceae, Boraginaceae, and Verbenaceae. They extracted methanol from either the roots or stems or a mixture of both of these eight plants.

The native plants studied are Acalypha cuspidate Euphorbiaceae, Galium mexicanum var mexicanun/Rubiaceae, Acalypha subviscida Euphorbiaceae, Adenophyllum aurantium (L.) Strother Asteraceae, Lantana achyranthifolia Verbenaceae, Alloispermum integrifolium Asteraceae, Salpianthus arenarius Nictaginaceae, and Tournefortia densiflora Boraginaceae. They are all traditionally and currently used to treat infectious and degenerative diseases.

The methanol extracts were tested for their antioxidant properties while four plant species were identified to have non-mutagenic properties and antitopoisomerase activity, meaning they inhibit the ability to change the DNA make-up of the cell.

The research team managed to identify the four plant species that exhibit the non-mutagenic and antitopoisomerase properties. These were A. integrifolium, A. cuspidate, L. achyranthifolia, and G. mexicanum.

The other plants, specifically the S. arenarius and the L. achyranthifolia displayed antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, a common bacteria that causes diseases such as minor skin infections, sepsis, osteomyelitis, bone infection, pneumonia, etc.

The final conclusion of the research team is that four of the plants, namely A. integrifolium, A. cuspidate, L. achyranthifolia, and G. mexicanum, have a strong potential for anti-cancer treatment.

Herbal medicine usage for cancer treatments

Popularly known as β€œherbal medicine”, the use of a mixture of indigenous plant extracts and herbs has been used for thousands of years and generations of medicine men for the treatment of diseases and the prevention and cure of diseases. Various studies have been recorded showing the potent use of herbal medicine to treat can

Seed germination advice?

Hello r/biology,

I am a first year undergrad student pursuing an honours B.Sc. with specialization in biology. I work in an ecology lab at my university and have been given the task of germinating Mertensia (Boraginaceae) seeds, however, it hasn’t been going very well. Here’s what I’ve done so far and it would be great if I could get some suggestions or feedback on my method:

The seeds (previously stored in a freezer for approx. 6 months) were placed in mini petri dishes lined with 2 layers of filter paper saturated with a 10^-4 M solution of ethephon. The petri dishes were sealed with parafilm to prevent the seeds from drying out, then placed in an incubator set to an alternating dark/light cycle (16h light at 20C, 8h dark at 15C). After noticing emergence of the radicle in several seeds, I transferred them to a plug tray filled with potting mix. Up to 4 seeds per plug were placed at soil surface and the tray was bottom-watered. Fast-forward 9 days later.. there are no signs of progress and I’m starting to lose hope. The daytime incubator temperature has been increased to 24C today but other than that, I am not sure of what steps to take next.

Sorry if I’m asking in the wrong subreddit but if you know of one that is more appropriate, please direct me to it!

I hit 200 Calflora entries tonight, here are some which gave me trouble.

There are a few Calflora entries which I thought I should get a second opinion on.

Phacelia plants give me trouble. I found three of them, but am not all that certain of the ID for any of them. Phacelia 1 Phacelia 2 Phacelia 3 Here are some species which seem plausible IDs to me: Phacelia cicutaria, Phacelia hubbyi, Cryptantha muricata var. jonesii, Phacelia distans. I think I finally have my milkweed identification right, I first labeled the ones without flowers as California Milkweed, then I changed the ID to Indian Milkweed. Milkweed 1 Milkweed 2 Milkweed 3

Brome gives me trouble, there are just too many species of brome. Here is one I identified as Ripgut brome Brome 1

Is Russian thistle a plausible identification for this plant?
