This is the typical problem we face in the process of identification. The author has not even indicated the place where this plant is growing. I would request experts to please make efforts towards this end. Any plant for ID should have some important details like Place, altitude, habitat, habit, size of plant, size of leaves, size of flowers, etc.

I fully endorse the opinion expressed by Dr. Gurcharan ji. I think
one should follow the guidelines and provide the details indicated
by him. This would help identification easy for the experts. I for
one would like to emulate the reporting by Dr Singh ji, which is a
model.

Ranjini ji
Please provide the details about the place etc because you were posting some pictures from California(US) as well as from India. The thread can not continue without it else it will be meaningless.

I have always mentioned the place in all my earlier posts.This was
certainly a case of  oversight.This pic was taken in Los Altos,
California.I do apologise for the incovenience caused.

This is a group that is very sincere and has experts who go out of
their way to help botanists, taxonomists and non-botanist, non-
scientists alike without any demur... I love it..

and hence it bothers me that some members take it for granted that no
matter how little they send, they are bound to get an id ... so why
bother?



Yes, I think its carelessness or thinking that this is magic where no
matter what one sends, how little one sends, there will be experts who
will identify... so why bother.... may be we should have a rule ...
that no details ... no diagnosis... its not like its the emergency
room where if we don't do any diagnosis a patient may loose life or
limb... may be we need stricter rules?

Such submission also makes a mockery of group's rules, that you and
Mr. Garg send out so repeatedly...

It makes a mockery of efforts of those sincere folks who spend time
and effort... of those of us who spend a great deal of time to
submit the formatted info and good sharp pictures with flower, leaf
(front and back if possible), size ...verbal or measure- tape in
picture along with flower or fruit, stem, bark, tree or shrub or herb
as a whole whenever possible, and I even take pictures of surrounding
habitat if the specimen is wild and not planted in a planned garden or
forest...

Usha di...

Ushadi

I can really understand your love for the group, and concern that members (especially new ones) become more disciplined and provide information as per the format. Although it is often difficult to resist the temptation of providing Id if you know the name, but perhaps the things will improve if experts tell the concerned member to provide details before (or at least after) identification. This only will compel members (who as you wrote who take things for granted) to provide necessary details.
