If you do an entry, always make sure to use the appropriate development icon when you post it here on the Forum at the first post of the thread. Change this icon by editing the first post at the thread once the status changes as well. The icon may also be changed by a Moderator or Administrator.

If you're a member of the Santharian Dream and would like to add stuff to the Herbarium, please post in the Herbarium section of the Santharian Development Message Board. People will then comment on your new addition and if the entry is approved it will eventually move to the site in one of the updates.

However, in order to design plants, herbs, trees, weeds etc. for the Santharian Compendium the following necessary sections need to be covered. If you still aren't sure what you should put in certain sections, please read through some entries first and see how others have done their entries.

 a) Categorization
Take a look at the Herbarium Menu and see in which category and subdivision your plant would fit (Bushes, Flowers, Edible Plants etc.).

 b) Basic Overview of the Plant
Write a short description on the plant for general orientation what this plant is all about. Can contain things such as its some things on its appearance, its main uses, how it is found etc. Perhaps some general information that might not fit into any of the other areas - maybe some history if required.

 c) Description
Write here what the item looks like, any extra things that grow from it, and items that it produces. If you aren't familiar with Santharian measurements, please check out the entry on Santharian Measures and Weights. first. Write it so that we can "see" it and that an artist could draw a picture from it. Mention perhaps the climate the plant flourishes in and the general "growth" cycle.

 d) Territory
Put here where this plant grows (which continent, which climate, which special region, e.g. mountains or sea etc.). How far spread the plant is would also be worth mentioning, along with any other information which relates to the placing of the plant.

 e) Usages
Is it medical? Is it used for anything in particular? Can people eat it? Does the plant have any postive or negative effects on a race?

 f) Reproduction (optional)
If the reproduction of the plant is worth mentioning, do it here. Not required, but sometimes it's quite useful to know.

 g) Myth/Lore/Origins (optional)
Does your plant have any magical creation surrounding it? Is there something in particular about this plant which makes it special? E.g.: Was it created by a god/dess, powerful person, freak of nature, through experiments? Where did it come from - where is it now?
If you follow these guidelines I'm sure developing plants, trees, herbs etc. for the Herbarium is much easier and will produce better results. - Happy developing!

@colossuem: I've looked over the entry. Be aware that although drawing attention is of course always an option, sometimes people are simply busy ;) It happens, you know?

Yep - there's still a lot to do on the continents we have opened for development.
