Ratings and Reviews
I love this app! I’ve been using it for years! I run up hard against a few limitations, such as the fact that it only updates your account when you ADD an orchid, not when you subtract one from your collection. You also can’t keep track of a plant’s development, or sort by temperature ranges. When we’re having a cold snap, I want a quick list of everything that needs to come indoors when the temperature drops below 50* F. But I haven’t found anything better, and I’m so invested in this one, it would take eons to input all the data into a new app. I’m home.
Very handy and easy to use
I’ve been using this app for several years in conjunction with the PC version. I find it easier and faster to do the data entry on the PC and then back it up to my iPhone app. It’s very easy to add genera, species and hybrids to the database. Very handy to have at shows to avoid buying duplicates.
I do not use the watering schedule because I have over 800 orchids and a full time job. Plus they are all watered the same so keeping track of this isn’t useful to me anyway. For easy access to your entire collection along with photographs, this app is well worth the very small investment.
Using daily to manage Orchids
I use this app daily as I water and fertilize my plants. I'm also placing events in the log so I can tell more about growth, flowering, and rest periods. I started tracking a few weeks ago so I'll know more as the year progresses. I'm new to orchid culture so I'm feeling more in control!
