This may sound like a weird one, but I am working on a plant ecosystem simulator as part of my research and am looking for property data on various plant species. Ideally, this data would include, amongst other properties:

  • Light requirements
  • Soil moisture requirements
  • Lifespan

Could anyone point me in the correct direction?

  • No, afraid not.

The closest I can find is PlantFiles, which is a huge database, and covers these criteria:

  • Height
  • Spacing
  • Hardiness
  • Sun Exposure
  • Danger
  • Bloom Color
  • Bloom Time
  • Foliage
  • Other details
  • Soil pH requirements
  • Patent Information
  • Propagation Methods
  • Seed Collecting
