We have organized Gardenize in 5 major blocks. The first three we call MY GARDEN.
Use the mobile camera to take pictures of plants in your garden or your home. You can take as many pictures as you want, e.g. from different seasons. Or take the opportunity to document plant development, from the time you plant a seed to a full-grown plant and maybe harvest. Write notes such as scientific name, seeding time, height etc. You can also note in what area the plant is growing.
MY GARDEN AREAS
Take photos of your flower beds, raised beds, greenhouse, balcony or indoor and give them a suitable name. Note the size of the area, how much light the area gets and what kind of soil it is. A free text field is available for your special notes.
Start keeping track of what you do and when by using the diary. Pick one of the standard activity types or create one that suits your needs. Choose from your list of plants and garden areas and snap one or more pictures to create fully searchable notes as "Watered Roses in Flowerbed by the kitchen". Add complementary notes in free text field and notes about time and amount.
The last two parts we give you for fun and inspiration.

Excellent plant tracking app
This is NOT a plant identification app. There are lots of great ones out there. This is an app that keeps track of your plants, where you got them, and when important event occur like repotting (or anything you deem as important as its customizable). You can store up to 5 photos per plant. The paid version allows more photos, but the paid version isn’t available in the us right now. The interface is easy to use an navigate. You can enter as little or as much detail as you want, and can go back and edit the data at any time. It’s my favorite plant app, not for beginners who need to know when to water, but a valuable inventory and “proud plant parent” app!

Thanks for your rating and review!
I want to call this app perfect but I just cannot. There are a couple of bugs I would love to see fixed. Firstly, the app closes regularly when I am switching between applications. I cannot possibly remember everything I need to enter for one plant, but often the app closes while in the midst of switching back and forth to find the information I need for a new plant.
Secondly, it is super slow to update between devices. While it closes frequently and then updates and syncs on reopening, I can log out and move to another mobile device but everything I changed has not actually synced on the new device. The restart upon close is super slow. It can take up to 2 minutes sometimes for it to open upon first use.
Is it really necessary to only allow it to open on one device at a time? I often switch between my tablet and my phone, yet everytime I have to do so I am waiting for the spinning ball of death to log me in and sync, even though it is not actually syncing until later.
I have looked at other similar apps and nothing comes close, but these problems are annoying enough after five months of use for me to look elsewhere. No one else is updating and no other app can do what this one offers. I am sticking with it out of sheer need and hope that updates can improve the experience.
The app is set up to log garden plants, but I use it for my houseplants and succulents. I have so many houseplants that I couldn't remember their names and what their minimum temperatures are (because I take them outside in the summer), so after researching a bunch I found this app and so far I love it. I've put in all of my plants and their basic needs for fertilizer and temperatures, and it has helped save me a lot of time that I wasted relooking things up.

Hi Sopie, Thanks for your rating and review, and as you say, Gardenize works just as well for house plants as for the outdoor environment!
