Good app, but could use some changes.
Great concept, and really cool for the plants it has support for. However, there are a lot of plants (especially California native plants!) that don’t have any support. There should be an option to add your own plants in and put in the associated watering schedule, much like the current “custom care” setting. That way, people who know their plants can still have the benefits of having all their plant lists in one place. Also, it is odd to me that the scientific names of the plants are so hidden. Most serious plant growers are familiar with scientific names more so than common names, and it’s a little frustrating when search results come in sorted by common name with only the genus visible (sometime). When i tried to find a plant that the app did not support i tried to search the genus but the results were muddled by the common names. So in summary: this app would be even better if users can add their own plants in (possibly contributing to plantas database of plant knowledge; making it easier on devs to add new plant support), and if common names were less emphasized than scientific names.
Update: thanks for the response! Changed my rating to 5 stars.

Hi! Thanks so much for both the kind words and feedback. We're working on adding a feature that will allow you to add your own plant (even if we don't have it) so bare with us :). About the name, this is definitely something we'll need to look into. Until then you can change the common name to whatever you'd like if you open your plant > settings (gear at the top right corner) > name). I know this isn't ideal but I hope it can help for now and just get back to us (email@example.com) if there is ever anything else we can do for you! Best Martin, 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
This app is amazing and works well. I have been watering my plants every time I get a notification. I am still a new ish plant owner. Because I have only recently gotten into plants. I personally think that the plant scanner should be free. Now hear me out. I can not afford to pay for Premium. And a lot of the plants (succulents) I buy do not have the name of it on the tag. For instance one of the succulents I bought from a store was just called “succulent in a tin”. I was unable to identify the plant and because I am unable to afford Premium I could not find out the name. Thus resulting in me having to go under “cacti and succulents” and scrolls for like 2 and a half hours before I was able to find the correct name of the succulent bought.
You are also ( from my knowledge) unable to change the main picture of your plant. When the plants grows more or I move it or I repot it I would like to be able to change to main picture of the plant. For example, I just recently repoted my ivy and was unable to change the photo that is showed when I need to water the plant. But I am only able to add pictures to the “add details” spot after watering and it does not update the main photo.
Overall these are my only problems. And the app is amazing other wise. I hope this was able to help someone. 🌿🌿

Hi! Thanks so much for your feedback, we hope you are still able to enjoy the free version even without the Plant Scanner :) With regard to choosing the main picture of your plants, we have good news - you can change it! Just go to My plants > choose plant > green + sign > Add picture.
The most recently uploaded picture will automatically be displayed as the main picture. Hope this helps! Best / Tove, Planta
