Introducing the Master Database
The Master Database
is built using Ideas Genie Pro and Bonsai Genie.
It is supplied free with every copy of Bonsai Genie.
An empty database is
created when you install Bonsai Genie.
This is for you to create your own personal plants and specimens database.
The software allows you to open any Ideas Genie or Bonsai Genie database.
The screenshot below shows
the Master Database opened in the Bonsai Genie software.
We’ve gone off the rails a little and used the software to create a “Garden” in the database called Bonsai Interest.
In that Garden, we’ve created a Garden Area
called Plants for Bonsai.
We’ve then added plants to that Garden Area and linked them to photos.
In the screenshot, note how you can copy
plants from the Master Database into your own (initially empty) database.
In your own database, you will create your own Garden and Garden Areas
and add your own Bonsai specimens to the garden areas. You can link photos to the specimens, as shown below.
