    I just picked up Horticopia Pro for my laptop. So far so good, seems like it'll be handy. There a couple things that I don't like. The main interface panel looks pretty cheezy and due for a redesign. If you end up building your own database of plants in addition to those that come with the program, that aren't listed in their database, you can't share your work with other Hort users. There isn't any convenient way to import database from growers, specialty nurseries etc. kinda a let down. Oh yeah and the MicroSoft MySql (sqlservr.exe) which kinda runs the network properties is a memory hog at 43240k on my cpu. What gets me is that you have to download MySql to run the program even if you are not on a home or work network.
