Five years ago my family redesigned our entire property - a tiny 6,700 sq foot suburban front & backyard - and incorporated hundreds of U.S. and/or PA native plants.
I have generally refrained from adding cultivated plants to my iNat observations, but the few times I’ve done so I’ve always been careful to check the Cutivated box.
I’m especially interested in surveying the growth and behavior of the native plant species we’ve purchased from local Conservancies. I will be confident on all of my IDs because I quite literally purchased & planted each one.
I’d be interested in hearing some suggestions for how to do it - should I create a Place, so my observations are collected under that Place? Should I create a Project to pull location-specific or tag-specific observations together?
Also - is it possible to create a private Place? As this will be my personal property and I grow vulnerable species, I do not wish to create a Place as if it is a city park or other such public space.
And, one more question…while many of the plants will be PA native species, if I’ve purchased and planted them…I should mark them as Cultivated, correct?
Thanks in advance for any of your thoughtful suggestions.
