comment which plants is it? small in size, long thin leaves
Welcome to the site. Please take some time to explain what characteristics of the plant in the photograph led you to that conclusion. Your answer would be much more helpful with that extra information.

comment Why are my Aglaonema's leaves turning yellow rapidly?
I've reduced its watering and the leaves don't seem to be dying as quickly now. Also, I've got cuttings sitting in water, waiting for roots to form.

comment Small aloe vera in small pot - will it get too big?
@zje I agree, that looks more like Aloe vera, not A. variegata

comment Small aloe vera in small pot - will it get too big?
Aloe variegata is sometimes mistakenly called Aloe vera because, well, it's an Aloe, and Aloe vera is probably the most well known.

comment What kind of plants are suitable to grow in Sydney's North Shore?
You say "vegetation" -- are you looking for plants that produce a lot of leaves, such as ivy? Or did you actually mean "vegetables"?

You would improve this answer if you described how you care for your plant: the amount of light it receives, temperatures, feeding and watering schedule, etc.

comment Mango seed growing, but not producing leaves
Hi Camella; you can use the edit link underneath your post if you need to make updates to it. I took the liberty of including smaller versions of your photos with a click-through to the originals. I also added a couple of relevant tags.

comment How do I get my Jade plant to grow again?
It sounds like the plant is already stressed. How will disturbing its roots help it?

comment What actually occurs for manure to become considered “well-rotted”?
From a suggested edit: A little picky perhaps, but the ammonia production does not deplete nitrogen from the soil. It is a by-product of nitrogen being released from the soil. As nitrogen is consumed, ammonia is released (as ammonium nitrate?).

comment Root system of an evergreen tree
Welcome to the site @Jane. I incorporated your comment into the original question because here we prefer posts to be self-contained so that all information is presented up front and people reading it don't have to jump back and forth to follow a conversation flow. (This site is different from a forum; take the [tour] for more information.)

comment Plant identification keys dataset
I know I asked for contact information, but posting someone else's address publicly is really not OK. I was hoping for a "Contact Us" page on the website.

I updated your post to clarify your affiliation with the site you link to. Please see the help center for the rules on self-promotion. And as already said, there doesn't appear to be any information about licensing on that site: could you be more specific about where to find it and what the terms might be?
