My name's Ocean, I'm a high school senior in the South Bay
I'm mostly interested in the native flora of wherever I happen to be, but pretty generalist to anything of intrigue. Currently doing this for fun, but hope to make a career out of related fields as this kind of stuff is my interest

Feel free to tag/message with questions on my IDs or if you need ID help (or just plant questions in general)! If I don't respond to an @ I probably saw it and forgot to reply or just missed it, @ me again if its been a while. I also make a lot of IDs so if my ID seems outlandish please question it, could be a dumb mistake. I’m best with Phrymaceae and CA plants, primarily focusing on Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, & San Mateo counties.
I also started working on a visual guide for local Delphinium here:
I'll keep adding to it as I have time and learn ^^
