The monthly Plant collaboration is a coordinated effort by WikiProject Plants to improve Wikipedia's plant-related content. Being a member of WikiProject Plants is not a prerequisite for participation in this collaboration (nor, conversely, is participation here a requirement for membership in the WikiProject). All Wikipedians, regardless of their level of expertise in the subject area, are welcome to contribute. There are many plant articles in particular that have very large articles because of their complexity. These may be better worked on in a collaborative manner, rather than by a single editor, in attempting to reach Featured article status.
Aside from the main benefit of creating better plant articles on Wikipedia, it is hoped that a successful initiative will: a) Attract new editors to work on the Project; b) Improve the writing skills of existing editors; and c) Demonstrate the value of collaboration on Wikipedia. The ultimate goal of the Plant Collaboration is to get at least one plant or botanical article featured every couple of months.

Plant COTM history
As of April 2012, attempts are being made to revive this collaboration. The collaboration was previously active in April to June 2008, with only one article (Ginkgo biloba) selected and worked upon, and garnered insufficient interest/momentum to keep going at that time.
