Totally inappropriate to map such things on OSM: too small, too many, too ephemeral, not readily verifiable by other mappers, GPS resolution not adequate. I've been in the field as part of a team counting one flower type in 4 small meadows: we found 26,000. Use one of the numerous open source data collection apps or roll your own.

Proposed?

Where was this "proposed"? user:EzekielT, you are apparently creating dozens of different tags as you see fit without discussing with the community. This is not acceptable. A flower in particular is totally inappropriate. -- SwiftFast (talk) 17:28, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

I'll propose it; sorry. I guess I thought it was okay since someone added "natural=fungus": https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Tag:natural%3Dfungus&action=history. Sincerely, EzekielT (talk), Mon. Jul. 24.

That fungus page was created by a new, inexperienced user. Please do not use that as example.--Polarbear w (talk) 09:26, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
