@kelsonv Yes, I've notice that.
I think there are a few reasons:
- most people post cultured (or potted) plants on iNat, out of ignorance of iNat's purpose, which usually gets ignored
- less people on iNat are good at identifying plants. My region has a few good identifiers, fortunately.
- maybe your shots don't capture enough info to ID the plants. This has happened to me. This forum post has some photo taking recommendations, including for plants [ https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/photo-taking-recommendations-by-taxon/1962/4 ]
@sohkamyung That's a really helpful forum thread. Thanks for linking to it.
I guess I've got to make an effort to take more varied photos of the plants I find.
