What to do now
First go to Special:Allpages and go through every single plant and add any photos which are missing. Also when you are going through all the pages, if there are links to additional species of plants on the pages (such as on the Strawberry page), then add those pages and photos as well.
Next make sure the lists of plants below are all added to Plants.am. If you finish a list, remove it from the list so I can see you need more lists :-)
