Default DeficiencyFinder.com - new resource for diagnosing plant problems.

While far from finished I want to let everyone know that there is a new free resource available for figuring out plant issues, deficiencies, toxicities and other growth problems. After making a few deficiency diagnosis diagrams and writing a few articles on the subject I figured a database with actual photographs of each individual plant species and each individual deficiency might be more helpful.

My database is called the DeficiencyFinder and is located here: www.DeficiencyFinder.com

I encourage anyone having a plant problem to browse through the site, read descriptions and message me or post on the forum if you need help confirming or figuring out a plant problem.

I'll be adding toxicity sections, and different ways of sorting the entries in time.

If you'd like to help me expand the database I'm always looking for good photos of any kind of plant problem. Send me an email or a PM and I'll give you credit when I use them in a description. I'd also like to thank all hobbyists who have already helped by contributing photos, thank you!

This is what the site looks like:

That's awesome Zapins! Thank you for your hard work on this. One suggestion; if it's possible, move the "synonyms" from the right cell to under the plant's name in the middle cell. My first reaction was "what are the synonyms for the deficiency?". You might also want to call it "Synonyms/Common Names" to reflect the Latin synonyms and what it's called in the hobby.

I was actually thinking the same thing when I first wrote synonyms. It is a bit confusing. I think I'll change it to Common Names or Common Plant Name.

Thanks for the suggestion!

What happened to this site? I can no longer access it. I always checked it when trying to determine my deficiencies

The guy who gave me free hosting closed up his hosting business recently. I will try get the site rehosted again, been a bit busy lately in real life but I will get it up and running again and keep updating it with new plant deficiencies.
