Greatest plant app ever!!

This has been the best plant app I’ve tried!! It has allowed me to diagnose plant sickness with just the snap of a picture and it gives detailed guidance on how to heal them and how to prevent the sickness from happening in the future. It also provides care plans for each plant up upload so I always know what’s needed for a new plant. It also has some cool features like know the “how much to water” calculator which has been a god send! Over all this is an excellent app! I did take a star off because the price is a bit high and sometimes it’s ability to identify a plant from a picture is pretty far off, but if you know the plant name you can just type it in and pull it up that way. But just know that the “finding a plant name by picture” feature is not always accurate so double check it if you’re questioning because if you get a care plan for the wrong plant type it could result in a dead plant type! Overall very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to others!

Super cool & intuitive app

I have a bunch of plants and love creating succulent gardens from clippings and reviving dried up/ half dead plants from the side of the road or a friend who can’t handle the care of them. I’ve been able to take pretty good care of most and have a lovely garden of likely 40+ potted plants… Sometimes my adoptees have issues tho- recently had an aphid or spider mite problem, that started spreading to my other plants! I decided to finally give this app a try to see what the problem may be with a couple as well regarding their watering needs. Now I realize each plant is different in its care and I’m having fun learning what they need so I can make sure to water and feed appropriately. The weekly charge is super high at $7 so $28 per month is more than I spend on my pots, fertilizer and tools! It kinda makes the lifetime option the only one that makes sense. Idk, hopefully as time goes on they will make a longer trial period or a cheaper monthly subscription option. But either way, the app is easy/fun to use and super informative! You can essentially create a whole catalog of your plants and where they are located and get reminded about what they need. It’s pretty brilliant.

Updated, do NOT recommend, waste of money

The app is helpful. The watering schedule has improved the health of my plants and the ID feature works well. The sickness diagnosis does not work very well and the notifications only show up about 30% of the time. The notifications were the biggest selling point for me and now it’s hardly worth it. A notification app where the notifications don’t work isn’t worth $50 to me.Update after about a year: notifications never work. I’ve reinstalled, checked settings, there appears to no explanation for why I never get notifications for when to water/fertilize. This morning I tried to identify something growing near the base of my ivy and as usual, the automatic identifier didn’t come up with anything. I started a message to the botanist for help and every time I hit send got an “unknown error.” This happened about 6 times, restarted the app, same error persisted. Eventually, after hitting send, I was directed to the page asking me to pay $20 for help service. Apparently my $50 premium lifetime membership doesn’t include help? This overpriced, broken app keeps asking for more money for what? Additional broken services? Reduced rating to one star.

Worst app and customer service

I’m no pro gardener but certainly not a novice either. I downloaded the app because my pothos took a turn for the worse and I couldn’t figure out it’s problem with online research. I took several clear photos of a few of my plants and the app was incorrectly identifying them. It also told me brown crunchy leaves were healthy so I opted to cancel my trial right away. Now, 7 weeks later I realize they’ve been charging me on PayPal each week. I contact customer service and they say I don’t have an account with the email provided. I share screenshots showing my ID in the app as well as PayPal receipts. They were emphatic they see detailed receipts. I shared those from my Apple account after figuring out how to pull them. I tell the rep multiple times that the app won’t allow me to click on the subscription to modify it - it just says active. However , the app will allow me to upgrade to lifetime if I want - how convenient. Ultimately I’m told NO REFUNdS and I consented when I started my trial - even though I canceled the trial and immediately got rid of the trash app. No assistance to help me cancel the subscription nor any refund for the money stolen from me. I ultimately had to go to Apple directly to get this thing canceled and filed a compliant. Terrible app and terrible customer service.

Saved my plant

A money tree is growing in my apartment. To tell the truth, it has been growing in our house for as long as I can remember and there were no problems with it before. But recently my cat dropped it. The pot broke, but the plant itself was not badly damaged. I transplanted it into a new one and thought that everything would be fine, but its leaves began to fall off, which made me worried. Then I wrote to the experts in this application and they helped me find the problem. It turns out that I did not pick up the pot correctly and the roots began to rot. They wrote detailed instructions on how to revive them. So detailed that even I, as an amateur, managed it. On their advice, I changed the plant care plan a little more. I love to see how the actions I take help the plant. Previously, it just grew and I did not notice it. But now I think gardening can become my new hobby.

I have a few plants, everything was fine with them until I left them to my friend to look after him while I went on vacation. After that, the plants began to feel bad, they began to fade, one of them turned yellow almost completely. I tried to look after them as before, but they did not bounce back, I did not know what to do and what happened to them. I tried to google what they got sick but found nothing. All advice turned out to be inappropriate in my case. Then I downloaded this application, uploaded photos and experts were able to identify my problem. They told what to do in this situation, drew up a treatment plan for the plant and they returned to normal. I am very happy. Thank them for that. Plants have been with me for a very long time and I would be upset if they wilted. I will not leave them to this friend again.

Very good

I was recently presented with a small money tree. I really wanted to raise him. I watered it a little and exposed it to the light, but it still didn't grow. I tried to change the exit strategy, but it still didn't grow. I didn't understand what was the matter. It took a long time but it remained the same size as it was when it was presented to me. Then I downloaded this application and asked the experts what was the matter. It turns out that the pot in which this plant was presented to me was too big for this and it spent too much energy on the development of the root system. Because of this, Ratsenia did not have the strength to grow at all. They explained to me how to transplant plants in great detail and I was able to transplant it into a smaller pot. Immediately after that, I noticed how it started to grow. Many thanks! If I have any other problems, I will definitely contact the experts with them.

Really Difficult to Cancel Subscription

I am not one to typically leave reviews, but this has been especially challenging for me and I hope that the company can read this and make some changes or someone else who is passionate about plants and wanting to learn more can proceed with caution. I really support the idea of the app, and think that with some changes to the payment system it could be a helpful idea,However, I have been trying to cancel my subscription for many months and the app would continue to charge me weekly even when under the settings of the app it says I am not subscribed. So, that means there were many months that I was paying for the app and not able to use it. As a student who budgets my time energy and finances extremely meticulously, this was infuriating at times. It felt violating and really shady. I ended up needing to contact Apple to be sure that my subscription was removed.This was gas money, food money, and how I was supposed to meet my basic needs. I do not have nine dollars for times a month to spare for a "donation" I did not sign up for. Very disappointed in this - maybe The company could issue me a refund as I was not able to use the app during the time that I was paying for it. if that happens, I would be happy to make an addendum to this review. Otherwise, I recommend highly against purchasing this app.

Best app ever

To be honest, I have never developed plants. I already thought that there was some kind of evil eye on me. Whichever plant I buy, it always withers after three months, even if it was a succulent that hardly needs watering. It seems to me that only a cactus would not be wilted, but I do not really like cacti. So I kept trying and this time I got a ficus. I found out the seller all the details about his departure and did everything right, but the ficus also began to fade. I was already completely desperate, but then I found out about this application. I photographed my plant and the experts helped me solve the problem. It turns out this time it was not about me. Pests have started on the ficus. It's good that they helped me to cure my plant and get rid of them. Now it grows further. I hope everything will be fine with the plant. What a pity that I found out about this app so late. I could have saved all the previous plants as well.

Great Plant assistant.

I’m fairly new to plants, and the intricacies of owning caring and growing them. In my plant journey, I have adapted the theory of use all tools necessary to grow your skill or hobby. In this process, I have tried multiple, I would go as far as saying, countless apps, to aid me in becoming a better plan parent. after trying multiple premium apps I can confidently say this one is the best. Upon opening the app the aesthetics are very attractive, upon opening the app for the first time I was very pleased at how easy it is to use. One of my plan babies. I’ve had a difficult time keeping alive, not knowing if it’s being properly watered, getting enough sunlight, or near and in air-conditioning. This app help me immediately identify that my current watering schedule, for my Monstera was not conducive to keeping it healthy, while also informing me of common diseases that affect this particular. The light meter, which was the focal point of me download this app has been a plant saver. I believe this app has already helped me save several plans and will continue to help me be a great plant father. I recommend this app to the Novice and expert plant grower alike, look no further download this app.
