Participate in Calflora’s 9th Annual May Photo Contest

To join the contest, upload plant photos here during the month of May. Publish and then "like" your photo to add it to the contest. We made this video tutorial for you.

You may also add photos via Calflora's phone app Observer Pro for Apple or Android. Add photos as you take them or load photos into Observer Pro from your phone's photo gallery or roll after you've taken the photo.
