Do you want to learn plants by the thousands
      Imagine encountering a plant you've never before seen, yet instantly recognizing it. That's the magic and power of the patterns method of plant identification.

      Related plants have similar characteristics for identification and often similar uses. Learn to identify plant families according to their common features, and you will instantly recognize other family members as you encounter them, even when traveling thousands of miles away from home.

      For example, plants of the Mustard family have 4 petals plus 6 stamens (4 tall and 2 short). Stamens are the male part of the flower, which is easy to remember because they always "stay men." If you find a flower with this combination, then you know it is a member of the Mustard family, and it is edible, typically as a spicy addition to a salad. There are more than 3,000 plants in the Mustard family, so you have just learned to identify 3,000 edible plants across six continents.

Want to learn more?
      Start with the basics by reading Shanleya's Quest: A Botany Adventure for Kids Ages 9 to 99 to learn to identify 45,000 plants to the correct families. Play the Shanleya's Quest Patterns in Plants Card Game to nurture your instant recognition skills with fun games like Memory, Slap Flower, Crazy Flowers, Wildflower Rummy, and Shanleya's Harvest.

      Take your plant identification skills to the next level with Shanleya's Quest 2: Botany Adventure at the Fallen Tree. The book and game will teach you 30,000 more plants, making plant identification fun for people of all ages.
