Hawaiian Native Plant Propagation Wiki
The Harold L. Lyon Arboretum Hawaiian Rare Plant Program (HRPP) has developed a Wiki site for posting and sharing of horticultural information related to native Hawaiian plants.
What is a Wiki site? The word "Wiki" is Hawaiian for "swift" or "quick" and refers to the ease of access to information. Wikis are built on an open source software called Mediawiki that runs the popular Wikipedia site, among others. Wikimedia is a non-profit foundation that maintains the underlying software that runs these sites. Wikis allow users to contribute content that is immediately available to viewers of the site. This speed and community involvement allow Wikis to contain large amounts of up-to-date information in a dynamic format. Unlike most Wikis, lots of effort has been put into making this site as easy as possible to enter and change information. That means no special programming or coding knowledge is needed to contribute to the project. Indeed, we would like to encourage everyone who knows anything about cultivation or propagation of native Hawaiian plants to contribute to this site so that it may become a repository of our collective knowledge.
The Hawaiian Native Plant Propagation Wiki was created through the generous support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. We hope to continue to improve the site and welcome any and all comments/suggestions. Please feel free to provide feedback to LyonHRPP@gmail.com
