I'd advise against enabling the background-image style if it is possible to  
define the styles in the pub/css/local.css or pub/skins/yourskin/skin.css  

For example, in pub/css/local.css or in pub/css/Group.Page.css define a  
class for the div element that will have a background image, and in the wiki  
page just apply the class attribute.

To enable styles other than the default ones, add something like this in  

  $WikiStyleCSS[] = 'position|left|top';

I assume that you have custom markup for the custom <plant> tag.
