Well, if you read the article, the authors actually answer this. Some of us like to know what we have in our tanks. Some have an interest in propogating plants, I know Mikaila does this and makes money doing it. Some of us want to know what plants we have for the same reason we want to know what fish we have--not all plants/fish can co-habitate together, and knowing the requirements of each plant species allows us to maintain a tank with less problems. I also like to know the plants that grow in my garden. Simply put, I like to know about my hobbies.
