Ratings and Reviews
Great app for keeping your plants healthy!
I’ve been using Planta for just over 4 months now as a premium user and I love it. It helps me keep my plants organized and healthy. While I am a relatively new plant “parent”, and I rely on it to help me know when to water, fertilize, and generally care for all of my plants (35!), I know that I still have to trust my own instincts and that every plant is different. That’s why I enjoy the features Planta has in place to make sure you care for your plants in ways that work for you. I enjoy all the features, including the plant health tracker, and access to a plant doctor bot for plants that are in trouble. For the most part all of my plants are thriving.
That being said, I would ask for Planta to think about adding a vacation mode feature into the app that lets you switch your schedules for the amount of time you will be away. Not all of us have people who will look after our plants while we are away, and it would be nice to be able to modify the watering schedule without having to snooze plants every 2 days until you get back. Also a tips section regarding how to prepare your plants for your vacation would be super nice, too. Maybe also a calendar view for upcoming activity would be a nice future add, too. 😊

Hi! Thanks so much for your review, we're so glad that you like the app :) A vacation mode is a great suggestion! We can certainly look into potentially adding something like that in the future, and a calendar view too. If you ever have any other suggestions for us then feel free to send them to us directly at email@example.com Best / Amelie, Planta
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. 🙂

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
Very helpful, makes me feel confident to buy more plants
I had a few houseplants for awhile but could never remember to water them, and so I didn’t feel like a very good plant mom. I decided to try an app, and I’m happy I chose this one, and I’m happy to pay for the premium version. I find it super helpful with the daily reminders, and the ability to identify plants through the app.
There are somethings I wish I could do through the app — I wish when you add a plant it would prompt you with questions about the current condition the plant is in, is the soil still moist when you bought it, are there new leaves that haven’t opened yet? Things like that that could help you notice the progress your new plant makes since bringing it home.
I appreciate the Dr Planta feature but I wish they gave you the option of writing in what the issue is, instead of just giving you a couple of options to choose from.
Also, I wish you could update a plant’s type after you have entered it as part of your inventory. I think I chose the wrong color variant on one of my plants, and I think I just have to delete it and enter it as the other one? Please tell me if there is a way to change this without deleting it and losing all of the data I had saved for it.
Overall I’m very happy with this app, and I think the premium features are worth it for a newbie like me. I have learned a lot already and I’ve only had the app for a month. Thanks Planta!

Hi! We're so glad to hear that you like the app and that it's helping you to feel more confident! Thanks for your feedback also, we can absolutely bear these things in mind when making future changes to the app. Do remember that if Dr. Planta doesn't manage to resolve your plant's issue then premium subscribers can also email us directly at email@example.com to get further help/advice from our plant experts :)
Right now it's unfortunately not possible to change an incorrectly identified plant, but we're working on changing this in the future. Thank you again for your review, and happy planting! Best / Amelie, Planta
