Editors’ Choice

Your houseplants will love this app. Simply tell Planta a location (living room, kitchen, office) and how much light the area gets and the app will recommend the plants most likely to survive there. Maybe a pothos for shady spots, a moth orchid for sunnier ones. With Planta, you can turn your home into a horticultural haven.

Great, But could be better

I love this app! I like the easy access to clicking my watering cycle. I like that I can categorize my plants into different rooms they are in. Things to make this app even more worth $35: -I’d like to have the ability to edit the watering cycle to a more specific date. You can only mark today, yesterday, about a week ago, about 2 weeks ago, or not sure/never watered. These are so vague when you add a plant. -if you accidentally mark that you have watered a plant that hasn’t been watered, you can’t edit the watering cycle. I end up having to put a reminder on my calendar. -Maybe adding a calendar to the app would make it easier for us to know which plant needs watering. -when my plant is sick and overwatered, the app still gives me a reminder to water the plant even if it diagnosed it as overwatered. It would be helpful to not have it in the “water” reminders if it is identified as overwatered. Looking forward to more improvements for this app!

Omg! You actually read my feedback :D this makes me happy and feel heard! Also, thank you for showing me that I can edit the watering cycle and change the date! Looking forward to the grow light options and to the many more additions to this app <3

Very helpful app but some suggestions…

🪴🪴🪴🪴Edit: I noticed that you added the slow release fertilizer sticks as an option but you cannot change this for an existing plant. 😔 I have 120+ plants and would prefer to use those types of fertilizers but don’t want to have to delete all my plants and add them back and lose all my progress. Can you please push another update that allows you to modify your current fertilizer preferences? ⭐️ 🌟⭐️🌟⭐️🌟

I have been using Planta for several months now and use it daily. I am a premium subscriber and while I do love the app I have some suggestions: it doesn’t seem to update watering schedule based on the amount of times you snooze the action. I live in rural VA and in the spring my houseplants don’t seem to need to be watered as often as the app suggests based on pot type and location. I would have thought the app would develop an algorithm over time but it doesn’t seem it has. Another helpful thing would be for you to be able to take a picture of a plant problem and submit it for review. I have had some issues with my plants that I am not positive are the issues outlined in Dr. Planta so I am not confident I am always treating the condition effectively. I wish that feature was more robust. I would also like to have the option to add light sources that are grow lights as I grow a lot of mine under lights. Overall, I love the app and will likely subscribe for another yearly subscription next year too. 🙂

Developer Response ,

Hi! Thanks so much for your review and for your suggestions! We'd love to make the algorithm self-learning in the future, we can totally see that this would be a useful feature. In the meantime, if you find your schedule is consistently off (and everything is okay with your set up) it may be beneficial for you to use a custom schedule instead.

We're also working on expanding Dr. Planta in the future! In the meantime, in case you weren't already aware, if Dr. Planta doesn't manage to help you then premium subscribers can always email us with questions/plant photos at or via the in-app contact form in order to get help and advice directly from our plant experts. Adding grow lights is also on our to-do list! Best / Amelie, Planta
