Keeps getting better

I started using this app about 6 months ago and it did ok with identifying my plants. I recently started using it again because I found it was more accurately identifying plants (tested at nurseries and such). The love the app design putting the camera ID button in an easy to find place so I can quickly ID those useless “hi, I’m a plant” labels in the big box stores. I love the photo and note journaling capabilities so I can chronicalize my plants journey through life. The water and fertilizing tracking and notifications are great since you have the option to either use their seasonal calculations based on the plant species, or set it up manually. I’ve used some of the genus-specific soil recipes that it offers and they have worked well for my plants. The light meter is somewhat helpful and they added the ability to save your light setting when you are capturing the light. It helps to place a blank white strip of paper (about 20# or 24# paper) over the camera to help diffuse the light. Unfortunately I don’t trust the educational videos because I have seen their videos give “tips” that contradict both the information in the text as well as general internet advice.
Wishlist: would love a function to set tracking and reminders for pest treatments. Would also love if you added more Hoya and orchid varieties in the picture ID catalog.

Fabulous and useful

Incredibly useful app. Does an awesome job identifying plants and shows great photo examples so you can be sure you’re getting the right results! Has care tips, tells you if a plant is potentially hazardous, shows commonly asked questions and their answers, and so much more. Love that I can “save to my garden” and look back at what I’ve scanned and reread the info anytime. Love the “diagnose” feature as well!! Had helped us identify different diseases and root rot and gives advice for care. Turns out we planted some (hardware store purchased) basil that had some infection in the roots that seeps into the soil, so now we can’t plant basil or mint or anything in our garden for several years. Would never have known without this app! Would have just thought the stalks were turning black because I have a black thumb 😂

My only critique is the cost of the “full version” of the app. I would be *happy* to pay the developers for their hard work on this app because it’s really so incredible, but $30 a YEAR is much too steep for me. What happened to apps being a couple bucks at most? What’s the deal with this whole yearly subscription thing?? I personally feel like the creators would make more money by charging less and having more buyers, but I’m no accountant. I’ll just keep clicking “continue with free version” til the cows come home.

Free Option is Useful!

I use the free option and overall I would recommend this app for plant identification and plant care reminders. I try to use an app for a while before I write a good review. There are NOT annoying ads. Each time I open the app it does ask me to purchase the full version but I click “cancel” and move on. I use this app frequently to take pictures of plants and identify the species. For free you can also take pictures of plants you own and add them to “my garden.” You can add pictures over time and see a timeline of the growth of your plants which is cool. It will suggest proper water and fertilization schedules for your plants and you can set up reminders/notifications to water or fertilize each of your plants. On I-phone there is also a widget you can add to your screen for the care reminders, I like it more than just the app icon.

There are added benefits if you pay for it like bird identification and you can unlock more information about the plants you identify and you can use something called 360 identify which is supposed to be more accurate. I have used the bird identification before because it used to be part of the free option and it was accurate. I hope this helps someone else decide whether or not to try this app! It’s worth a download to compare it to other apps you are considering.
