Great app for keeping your plants healthy!
I’ve been using Planta for just over 4 months now as a premium user and I love it. It helps me keep my plants organized and healthy. While I am a relatively new plant “parent”, and I rely on it to help me know when to water, fertilize, and generally care for all of my plants (35!), I know that I still have to trust my own instincts and that every plant is different. That’s why I enjoy the features Planta has in place to make sure you care for your plants in ways that work for you. I enjoy all the features, including the plant health tracker, and access to a plant doctor bot for plants that are in trouble. For the most part all of my plants are thriving.
That being said, I would ask for Planta to think about adding a vacation mode feature into the app that lets you switch your schedules for the amount of time you will be away. Not all of us have people who will look after our plants while we are away, and it would be nice to be able to modify the watering schedule without having to snooze plants every 2 days until you get back. Also a tips section regarding how to prepare your plants for your vacation would be super nice, too. Maybe also a calendar view for upcoming activity would be a nice future add, too. 😊

Hi! Thanks so much for your review, we're so glad that you like the app :) A vacation mode is a great suggestion! We can certainly look into potentially adding something like that in the future, and a calendar view too. If you ever have any other suggestions for us then feel free to send them to us directly at email@example.com Best / Amelie, Planta
Great app - needs more details
So I’ve been using the free version of this app for a few months and I wanted to try out the premium version so I know when to fertilize and all. I’m glad it tells you when to fertilize, but every plant says “all purpose fertilizer” which honestly if you use that on all of your plants you will burn some roots and kill them. Some house plants need a specific fertilizer. And it’d be cool if there were some natural alternatives in there as well, like banana peel water. Also, add what kind of soil you should use! There should totally be a big soil section, but not one that just says “all purpose potting soil” like, definitely have someone who knows what they’re doing tell you what different mediums to mix for this certain plant. (Coco coir, peat moss, perlite etc.) If you added these small details I’m sure you’d have much more business. The right soil and fertilizer is so important for growth. One more thing, do some quick research on each of your plants to make sure Planta is giving you the right info. I’ve been barely watering my rubber trees and letting them dry out because that’s what planta said, but I just did some research and saw that they need to stay moist during the summer 🤦🏻♀️ sooooo, that’s why two of my rubber trees are drooping and dropping leaves.
Overall, I’m super grateful for this app because I could never keep up with my 47 plants without it, but definitely could use some more details!

Hi! We're working super hard to try and add more details to our various info sections and want to expand each of them to include more options. Just hold tight until then! Also, sorry to hear about your rubber tree - you are always welcome to use the Dr. Planta feature or reach out to us for help if you ever notice a plant looks unhappy. Best / Ida, Planta
Best app out of all the other
I was struggling to find an app I kept deleting some because they never notify in time, they never recognized my plant, or their plant spectrum was not broad enough. I really like this app it gives you information about your plant that I never knew. I hesitated on getting the subscription but I’m glad I made the decision on buying it. The plant doctor is so helpful it tells what I’m doing wrong when I didn’t realize that I was doing harm to the plants. I love the schedule misting option cause most of my plants need that and I forget to do that when I live in a dry area. The only reason why I didn’t give it all 5 stars because it has some flaws I hope they can fix. For example live in Los Angeles and the app says the weather here is 70 degrees which in reality it’s either 80 or 90 😣 so I don’t know if that will affect my plants watering at night since it tells me to water them longer than I usually do. Talking about the watering schedule I wish it has a schedule of setting a LOUD alarm at a specific time because I am a college student the only time I can care for my plant is between 10-11 o’clock am and I know I can’t water them later because of my assignments; another thing is when I water them at night, I learned the hard way, my plants are more prone to pests and bacteria. If anyone is reading this help to get the developers attention to fix this app I really like it.

Hi! We're so happy that you like the app and have been finding it helpful :) We're working on improving the accuracy of our temperature values, but until then if it is especially hot, you may wish to add extra waterings to compensate for the difference. As for your reminders, you have the option to choose when to receive notifications - you can change this if you go to My Plants > Settings (gear in top right corner) > Notifications > Remind me at (choose time). So then you can pick a time that suits you :) We don't typically recommend watering at night, so if at all possible it may be better to switch your watering time to, for example, in the morning. We can certainly consider adding the option to have an alarm setting for when you receive your reminder. If you have any more suggestions or questions, or even if you just want any help/advice, then feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org :) Best /Tove, Planta
