Dev cpp gives me the error
18 C:\Dev-Cpp\Untitled1.cpp request for member setStats' inplant1', which is of non-class type `Plants ()()'

And the same for line 19. Please someone tell me what's wrong. I'm a noob at c++. Thanks in advance.

#include <iostream>
using std::cout;
using std::cin;
using std::endl;

#include <string>
using std::string;
using std::getline;

#include "Plants.h"

int main()
{
 string kind;
 Plants plant1();
 cout<<"Enter plant kind"<<endl;
 cin >> kind;
 plant1.setStats(kind);
 cout << plant1.getAge() << " " << plant1.getSize() << " " << plant1.getName() << endl;
 cin.get()
 }

>>Plants plant1();

When declaring an object do not include the (). Its just Plants plant1;

Tried it but gives me a new error. thanks though

You were right. i fixed it a little bit more but now it gives me

You are trying to use a default constructor without having a default constructor defined.

EDIT:
Part of your issue before was that you had an "overloaded" constructor but no default constructor, which normally isn't a good thing. It seems that it still thinks there isn't one.
/EDIT:


I suggest you study constructors and destructors a little more...
