|This sounds like a good idea to me. Are those all the parameters that you want? Will the same template be used for fungi? I think "edible" will have to be from the point of view of the consumer, so how about a '''consumedby''' parameter? If there is a list of types, that would be handy for the documentation (which I hope you will help write, since you know the flavor of info that is going into the infobox).

**[[:Category:Plants]]

or does this need more discussion? I'm thinking of making a main {{tl|Vegetation}} template and having {{tl|Plant}} and {{tl|Fungus}} templates as pass-throughs to the main one. Depending on which sub-template you use, the page will be put in [[:Category:Vegetation]] and either [[:Category:Plants]] or [[:Category:Fungi]]. Thoughts?

Forums: Helping Hand > Plant template

Use the following template for a nicely presented post:

{{Forum post|Write your message here!|~~~~}}

So, could we make a plant template? I've been using Template:Item but it's really not doing it for me. I'd love to have one that is a mix of Template:Item and Template:Creature, such as
{{Plant
| image         = 
| caption       = 
| name          = 
| othernames    = 
| nicknames     = 
| type          = 
| location      =
| origin        =
| value         =
| usage         = 
| lifespan      =
| height        =
| trunkdiameter =
| stemcolor     =
| leaftype      =
| leafcolor     =
| flowercolor   =
| distinctions  = 
| first         =
}}

(And maybe something about whether its edible or not, but I don't know how to phrase that, or specify to whom.) See a few articles that could benefit: Blueleaf, Bluecap, Duskwood (tree). Thoughts?
P.S. Note that some "plants" are considered creatures (Hangman tree), but I don't feel like that fits for most of them.

I am not completely against this idea... hmmm, have we had this discussion before?

It's very possible it's been discussed before; I'll admit I don't really follow the forums. What I could find was the discussion Forum:Are plants considered items?, which is related in terms of categorization but didn't broach the idea of a plant template (according to my skimming). I would like a standardized template because I have big plans for a bunch of plants I would like to put in/clean up, you see :)

You have my vote in support.
