    Click on the fourth item from the top in the sidebar on the right-hand side of this page, the entry entitled "Attaching Images". This will give you more information on how to accomplish this maneuver.

    Or, do what I do: prevail upon a techno-savvy young person (in my case, my daughter) who will do it for you!

    By the way, welcome to the Forum. Until the photos are visible to us all, give us more details about your mystery plant. D'you mean the whole plant is red or just its leaves? Is this plant growing in sand? Does it grow from a rhizome or bulb? Any flowers? Does it have an aroma to it? Leaves opposite or alternate? How tall?---Well, you get the idea!

    Hmm. Could it be an Amaranthus?
    Wow---you DO have quite a crop of them!

    Am sure that our bevy of plant experts will have this quickly IDed for you.
    I can see why you'd like to cultivate it! So would I!
