Plant Proposals currently available;


Stalkgrass
Assigned to Aaron Silverleaf.
Referenced by: Grunok
Search Link: Grasslands of Hylach (http://www.santharia.com/places/hylach_grasslands.htm)
Details: A clump-growing, short-turf (palmspan to palmspan-and-a half tall) grass which has one or two very tall (up to two peds) seed stalks per clump. Based on earthen Dallisgrass
Plant in mind: Dallisgrass (http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/plantanswers/turf/publications/weed14.html)


Starstem
Referenced by: Grunok
Search Link: Grasslands of Hylach (http://www.santharia.com/places/hylach_grasslands.htm)
Details: A sleek, beautiful green grass, less hardy but more desired than the other two.  
Plant in mind: Bermudagrass (http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/plantanswers/turf/publications/bermuda.html)


Strongrass
Referenced by: Grunok
Search Link: Grasslands of Hylach (http://www.santharia.com/places/hylach_grasslands.htm)
Details: A strong, coarse-textured, hardy grass which grows under most conditions.  Is a considered a pest in many areas.  
Plant in mind:Kikuyu.


Blackberry Bush (Ráhaz-Dáth, Truban) -> assigned to Shati Up
Assigned to Lutalica
Referenced by: Talia Sturmwind
Search Link: Ráhaz-Dáth (http://www.santharia.com/places/rahaz-dath.htm)
Details:
The Blackberry Bush grows in the northern half of the Ráhaz- Dáth, where trees are standing quite far away from each other, so that it gets enough light, it is a plant for half-arid regions. The berries are valued by humans and animals alike. Height about two peds, leaves small, dark green.  Spikes. Leaves (bark, roots?) have a medical use (choose which one, could be slightly poisonous as well), berries small, but juicy. The black colour thins out to a dark lilac-blue when mixed with water. Can be used as a dye.
This plant is a desert plant and needs therefore some features these plants have normally!That‘s up to you!


Heartsore, Arly's Kiss
Referenced by: Miraran Tehuriden
Search Link: here (http://www.santharia.com/people/arleina.htm)
Details: When the elf maiden Ar'leina tried to commit suicide, her blood was transformed into a multitude of beautiful small flowers with petals of a golden-red shade. From certain parts of this flower a concoction can be made that leaves an unpleasantly sharp taste on the tongue, but reinforces the heart, alleviating chest pains.


Pheasant Grass  
Referenced by: Bard Judith
Search Link:  here (http://www.santharia.com/cgi-bin/search.cgi?zoom_query=pheasant&zoom_per_page=10&zoom_cat=-1&zoom_and=0)
Details:  Importance. Good hay, golden seedheads are popular with wild birds.
Summary. Tawny plumes of seed heads decorate this longstemmed wild gold grass. Also a major component of the plains ecosystem, Pheasant Grass grows from one to two peds high in small copses or thickets. It dries quickly and is very attractive, keeping its shiny golden colour and not dropping seedheads everywhere. Birds thrive on the grain, and horses enjoy the cut dried "pheasant hay" in the winter.
llustration: See here (http://www.santharia.com/pictures/jeff/kuglim_helvetine.htm), bottom left.


Rrihoorr Moss[Lit: Lightening Crop]
 Referenced by: Rookie Brownbark
Search Link: The Council Tree (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,12565.0.html), in the Fauna section.  But it might be easier to just quote the passage where it is mentioned:

Quote
Another persistent pest is the Styruine Round Worm.  This horrible little grub is known to attack the precious winter stores which are kept in the storage rooms under the Council Tree.  Fortunately the Brownies have discovered a simple way of getting rid of it – they attract it to certain parts of the cellars with generous handfuls of rrihoorr moss, a crop which can often be found growing alongside Greenbark moss and has a strange spicy flavour.  The Brownies then collect up all the worms and eat them.  This bug seems to have a preference for this spicy plant, and can be easily rounded up for the pot.  It  goes nicely with any dark green leaves, and adds a good, slightly spicy flavour when mashed into a sauce.

Details:  Spicy in flavour and mosslike, otherwise feel free to make it up. It is used as bait for Styruine Round Worms, but could be used for other things too - eaten by the Brownies, as a dye, a bedding....or pretty much anything else.

Blackberry Bush (Ráhaz-Dáth, Truban)


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Miraran Tehuriden on 30 September 2008, 06:42:22
As you wish! It is now assigned to you. Please make sure to inform Talia Sturmwind when you present us with your first version, she is responsible for the area this plant will grow in. Good luck and enjoy your entry!


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Aaron Silverleaf on 04 November 2009, 11:32:01
May I do the rewrite for the Carroot.   ;)


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Deklitch Hardin on 04 November 2009, 11:39:40
With the updated version of the Yahrle Herb now on site, that one could be removed from that list of entries needing to be updated. (Whenever it is convenient to do so, of course) :D


Mira->Done!


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 05 November 2009, 03:52:01
@Aaron: Why's the Carroot up there? Hmmm... Could use a lengthier overview mayhaps, and a Reproduction section, I see. But it's a Bard Judith entry, so I guess nothing wrong with the content. If you just expand the entry slightly in this regard and leave the rest that should be fine, I'd say. So I guess no harm done then.


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Aaron Silverleaf on 05 November 2009, 07:00:44
Alrighty. I'll get the entry edited before you can say ABC. :D


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Miraran Tehuriden on 05 November 2009, 07:09:57
Indeed. The Carroot entry need updating to the more recent standards, and needs a Reproduction section. That is, in fact all you'll be allowed to do, so you might want to pick another entry that gives you more liberties.


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Bard Judith on 05 November 2009, 08:25:11
If the Carroot is deemed necessary to rewrite, I shall be happy to bring it up to contemporary standards myself.

 No offense to Silverleaf, but please choose something else to practice on.


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Aaron Silverleaf on 05 November 2009, 10:18:46
Ok! I'll just do the Stalkgrass if that is available ?  :cool:


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Azhira Styralias on 05 November 2009, 10:27:42
Hrm...here I see an interesting little plant begging to be expanded upon up North!

Perhaps I can play with Drogo's Alth'Tiert (http://www.santharia.com/herbarium/alth_tiert.htm) plant? I envision something similar to my tear frost, but in a hot, volcanic environment. With some bonus fire magic reagents!



Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Miraran Tehuriden on 05 November 2009, 19:47:55
The Alth'Tiert is hereby assigned to Azhira, and the Stalkgrass to Aaron, neither with special limitations.

Judith; the only thing wrong with the Carroot entry is the lack of a reproduction section. (Hence the limitations i posed upon Aarons' rewrite add-on.) It is now 'assigned' to you to prevent further confusion.


Edit->thread cleaned out, lists updated fully.


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Deklitch Hardin on 05 November 2009, 20:18:52
Could I try my hand at the Roses Overview? I presume it is going to be a matter of taking that Rose page that it references, updating it (so that it has similar information to the other plant overviews (birch trees and cacti for example)), and then adding in the Overviews of the different roses?


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Miraran Tehuriden on 05 November 2009, 20:29:42
Exactly! And goodness gracious, we (finally) have a volunteer for an overview! All yours, it is.

Hi I'm a newbie and I was wondering if I could work on the Blackberry Bush entry.  Also, I may work around here a bit ecause I have access to a family member wo is very knowledgeble and has a large amount of resources on plants.


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Miraran Tehuriden on 11 February 2010, 08:13:49
Granted. Please contact Talia Sturmwind for her particlar wishes, she runs the Rahaz Dath region

Post by: Gwai'ayia Quillouf on 06 June 2010, 12:46:28
To help me get back into the swing of things....I'll gladly make an corrections expansions that are needed to the Erissa's Tears entry, if you will fill me on the what it needs.  I also noticed that when I clicked on the link for the legend of the snow maiden it wasn't working, why, may I ask?

Feel free to throw any other plants in my direction that need work or expansion.  Goodness knows I like the feel of dirt underneath my finger nails, mud in my toes, and have plenty of free time.


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Miraran Tehuriden on 07 June 2010, 07:43:52
Erissa's Tears just needs adaptation to the current template (A reproduction section, for instance. I can imagine it can be fleshed out significantly as well.

The snow maiden link probably broke when we reorganised the library.

entry granted.


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Gwai'ayia Quillouf on 08 June 2010, 10:51:00
Well, that was easier then expected.  Shall we try something more difficult then?  I'll take the entry for the Heartsore plant.  It needs creation anyway.


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Kareesh Valendar on 02 December 2010, 12:46:35
I would like to try my hand at updating the onion entry. ^^


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 03 December 2010, 04:33:46
Does it need updating? It's a bit short, but it's a Judy entry, so what's there is good and should stay there. Sure, it can be expanded, as there's no Reproduction section e.g. as of yet - so make sure to mark changes/updates when you update it!


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Azhira Styralias on 03 December 2010, 05:52:35
My North and Mists entries have a few plants that need full entries. The Ghostlings eat a stinky bush berry called a "jha'liss"

I also made a red vine plant in the Caaehl. And I have a corn type plant eaten by the Kaaer. Also, around the Wyrmrot Spire grows huge tangled thorny plants that are likely some mutated bramble given considerable growth by dragon blood.  :evil:

Volunteers welcome!


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Kareesh Valendar on 03 December 2010, 08:04:10
The onion entry was listed as being in need of rewriting/expanding. I was just planning on bringing it up to speed with the current requirements of the herbarium. I can ask Judy first, if that is possibly needed.


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Bard Judith on 03 December 2010, 08:45:50
Az, I wanna do the corn!  I love grains and we don't have nearly enough of them.  In fact I was planning a general 'Maize' entry, so I might make your 'corn-type' a subset of that.  Can you give me the link to whatever info/references you have extant?

Kareesh, are we talking about the Weeproot?  Sure, if it doesn't meet spec, feel free to add/expand.  I'm sure you'll respect what's already there...do feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions or issues!


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Kareesh Valendar on 03 December 2010, 08:52:59
I don't think so, Judy, unless an entry got put in twice. It's just called "onions". Linkage! (http://www.santharia.com/herbarium/onions.htm)


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Bard Judith on 03 December 2010, 10:43:43
Nice catch, Kareesh; it did!  http://www.santharia.com/herbarium/aelons_vegetables.htm
 (http://www.santharia.com/herbarium/aelons_vegetables.htm)

Oh, Artimidor, dear... we seem to have an overlap!

Perhaps 'onion' could be added as an alternative name to the aelon entry so that searches turn it up instead, and the old entry deleted?


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Azhira Styralias on 04 December 2010, 10:18:18
Oh great Judy! The maizet plant is not so much a grain as it is a root. However, I am revising the entry now and could easily make it a type of corn. Right now, the entry states as follows:

Quote
The tribe has also developed a type of bread-like wafer from the bulbous roots of the maizet plant. The hardy stalks of brown plant grow in abundance along the heaths and the tribe has even cultivated the plant in fields to the east of the Themed'lon. The roots are pulled during the late summer and ground up in a mixture of flavored dried moss and water producing a sticky paste. The paste is then baked in a domed oven to form flat, flaky bread. The tribe call this starchy food "tor'mata".

As you can see, I clearly took inspiration from a corn-type plant and flaky bread is a type of tortilla. Yummm!


Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 07 December 2010, 05:00:09
So... "Onion" would be added to the Aelon entry, and the onion entry is completely obsolete? Is it all contained in the Aelon entry? Just to make sure before I actually remove the entry from everywhere...

Also it looks like Kareesh doesn't have any work then, or? Because it's all there already, eh? Unless there's still more to add... - or she finds another interesting entry to do :)

Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Amabella Catston on 28 April 2013, 17:24:34
I'm new at writing entries. May I start by writing the one on Pheasant grass, or is it taken? Looks like my character's draught horses would enjoy eating the hay...



Title: Re: Herbarium Entry Proposals
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 29 April 2013, 01:32:17
Yep, Pheasant is still open for development, Amabella, and no plans from anyone to work on it as far as I can see. So it's all yours! Just make sure to check ozt the short overview provided by Judy I guess in the Grasses Overview (http://www.santharia.com/herbarium/overview_grasses.htm) and build from there. The good thing is also that we already have an illustration for this one... - and hopefully an entry soon. :cool:
