Conservation Through Cultivation is a motto that we like to use when talking about keeping the interest in conserving and preserving habitat. The Plant Library was started to help garner an interest in a variety of plants to make a way to trade plants amongst enthusiasts. This not only reduces the wild collection of certain plants but it garners an interest in the habitats these plants came from, their care, and an interest in doing something to reduce the habitat loss and destruction that the environment suffers.
Through plant tissue culture and conventional horticultural methods these plants we obtain are disseminated throughout the hobbyist arena. Several methods to propagate them are also found in the articles on Biotope One. The Plant Library project was started in hopes of helping hobbyists obtain plants and to educate them about how to propagate and protect them in their natural habitat.
We are always working on organizing and expanding the Plant Library. Below we have a list of plants that we are keeping and cultivating and if you are interested in trading for plants please contact us. Not all plants are available at all times as their growth and availability are subject to many factors.
