Edit strain list

Take care when changing your strain list in a GroLog. We recommend only changing your strain list if you added the wrong strain or left out a strain originally. Botana helps keep accurate records of your garden. Changing your strain list in a GroLog can mess up your data integrity.

Note: If you've already tagged images or tasks with a specific strain, you can not remove it from a GroLog.

  1. Go to the Edit GroLog screen
  2. Look for the Genetics section and tap Add Strain or tap an existing strain name
  3. You can scroll through 9000+ strains... but it's better to Search!
  4. Start typing in the Search bar
  5. Find and tap the strain in the results Note: If you tapped an existing strain, it will be replaced.
  6. Tap the check mark at the top right to save the changes to your GroLog.
