Learn what plants are what, and make your planting ideas come to life.
If you have plants in your home, you agree that greenery gives you relaxation and calm, and also a nice decoration to your place. And maybe you want to add some new flowers or bushes to your outdoor space. First, however, you need to know how to take care of your plants in every way, and you’ll need to identify what types of plants are what.
You can find many free and monthly subscription plant apps that identify plants, provide care reminders, and discover new plants to make your indoor and outdoor spaces more colorful and joyful. Here are some popular apps you should try for this summer.
PlantSnap is one of the most well-known plant identification applications and has more than 600,000+ searchable plants, flowers, trees, succulents, mushrooms, and cacti in the database. It is free to use for Android users and $3.99 for iPhone users.
Once you download PlantSnap, it provides a video tutorial to easily and quickly learn how to use the app. Then, it asks you to take a clear photo of a few leaves or single flowers and zoom in for accurate identification. Once the app recognizes the plant or flower, it provides more information like the name, genus, symbol, habitat, class, order, family, kingdom, and more. It also informs you if the plant is toxic to your pets. This app continues to develop using the millions of anonymous images taken by the users.
PictureThis ranked #1 in Education on iOS App Store. It is free to try for a few days; then, it is $1.99 per month or $19.99 per year. This app identifies 1,000,000+ plants, flowers, and trees, diagnoses any plant problems, and provides suggestions for proper treatment. Surprisingly, you can have a one-on-one conversation with a botanist and get more help if needed.
The app provides plant guides that help you to choose the right plants to grow in your area. Additionally, you can create your plant diary, keep notes, record the growth, and even get reminders to water them. Many reviews say that it is highly accurate and identifies different species of rare plants.
What’s That Flower?
What’s That Flower was developed to help people who want to know what flower it was that they’ve just seen at the park. The biggest benefit of this app is that you don’t need a photo to identify the plant. Instead, you will answer a questionnaire that will help you narrow it down to the one you are looking for on the app. The questionnaire asks for the flower’s color, habitat, number of petals, region, and other characteristics. Then, the app will suggest a few lists of plants that are similar to what you are looking for.
Unlike one monthly subscription option, this app provides various purchase options such as no advertisement, offline mode, custom filer, search by photo, observation, and more.
