Help reading API documentation

How I can get information from this API without having the plant id from the start? Like looking a plant up by its common or scientific name.

Look at the plants endpoint.

Thank you for the help.
My knowledge of APIs is limited to the small section in freecodecamp, I might need to have a look at a broader article.

For instance, I now see that I can add that to the path along with the other query parameters, but I do not know what an endpoint is nor query parameters.
I’ll research a bit more before going forward.

The endpoint is basically just the base URL + route.

Here is some more info for Express at least.

Just found out that freeCodeCamp actually has an amazing video on youtube about APIs!
For anyone that stubles across this post.
