Planted in Indonesia

One of the issues that we are coming across with this effort to improve the data on wild flowering plants is that a lot of observations of plants that are planted (not naturally occurring) still need to be tagged. iNaturalist rules that even exotic species are eligible for Research Grade, but only if they have spread themselves (eg the seedling of a planted tree). There are quite a few planted specimens turning up as Research Grade in iNaturalist.

Of course, it's fine to add these observations, they just need to be tagged appropriately.

If as an identifier, you spot an observation of a pot plant or a street tree, as well as marking it 'not wild', it would be super if you also point the users to the new project - e.g. "Your observation will appear in the new project https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/planted-in-indonesia , where users can help one another to identify garden and house plants, street trees, crops and so on. Please do feel free to join. "

Establishment status

@tansh91 who has been kindly identifying some of the plants says "Can someone label all the exotic plants "Establishment means: Introduced" in the Indonesia country page?

https://www.inaturalist.org/places/indonesia#taxon=47126 "

Any views on a good source for which are introduced to Indonesia?
