Bud is a visual diary of your plants life. Growers have kept journals for years to track their plants health and development. The information derived from monitoring a plants life cycle has helped increase yield and potency over time. Up until now most growers have used a variety of tools to track this information, excel sheets, word documents, photo galleries, and good old pen and paper. Bud aims to put this all in one place and give growers an organized way to track grows.

Growing is often a solitary activity and for those who want to keep it this way bud allows users to keep all their journals private. But for those who like to share, get feedback, discuss strains, talk techniques, and ask advice, bud offers a way for users to easily share their journals with the community. Public journals can be seen by all, and users can follow individual grows or other users to keep up to date with their latest updates. Privacy is important to growers so all images are stripped of meta data before being stored and shared.

Bud’s aim is to provide a product people like to use, so feedback is encouraged, happy growing.

Such a great app

Very clean and intentional design. It is a little laggy, but app development is hard and this app is free so whatever. It is definitely the best of its kind. I personally don’t use it for ‘grows’, just my regular boring plants, but I have showed it to a few friends who grow and they are obsessed. The social aspect of seeing other people’s grows is super nifty. Hats off to the creators and developers. 10 outta 10 would recommend.

Great app to track your grows

I think there’s definitely room for improvement but it does a good job at what it does. Allows notes on each update and multiple pictures. I wish I could label each sub picture so people know what each is. I grow 4 at a time and don’t feel like making 4 different grow series as all 4 share the same nutrients and time schedule. But for what it’s worth, it’s the best I’ve found thus far. I like to browse other people’s grows, it’s fun to see everyone’s grows and you can see who’s new to growing and who’s just starting. I think they should have categories for the types of grows. Hydro types, soil types, indoor, and outdoors. Would make for a great resource... maybe even a chat area. Blah, it is what it is.

Good app!

Good but needs some work

I like the app for growing. Helps keep track of feeds and when I switch to flower etc. fun to look back at old pics and see the progress made or if u had a problem in your previous grow you could go back and see what you wrote. The interface could use some work though. Whenever you search for something and click one of the searched options and decide you want to look at a different option it takes you all the way back to the home page. Also replying to people is weird, I never know if anyone gets my replies. These may seem like little things but there’s only so many things you can even do on this app to where I think those could be fixed.
