Post Plant photos implementation 
Below are some rough notes on the idea:

Reflect different colored plant strains with tinting, coloring, etc.
- Brightness, color, tint, etc. could be easily modified with vector vegetable graphics

Rather than using actual photos for the representations of plants in your plot, you could supplement the plants with photos (and maybe a short description with germination info, planting times in your zone, etc) after you click on them.

For example, if you clicked on an Ugly Ripe tomato you would see a photo of an Ugly Ripe in the details window. You could then change it to a Cherokee Purple by selecting it from the dropdown - the photo would change and the vector graphic representing the plant would change color and tint to a purplish red.

This implementation would be beneficial for multiple reasons:
1) Representation of plant would be vector format so you can scale it without pixelation
2) It's easier to programmatically tint a vector graphic than to create a new graphic and set transparency, etc.
3) It would allow you to show a more detailed photo of the plant strain
