    If you find yourself in a garden shop surrounded by 100s of plants and the 1 spice that catches your eye you don’t know much about, you need to get the information. You can identify nearly any plant with just a photo and find out how to take care of indoor.

    Do you have garden with 10 different plants in it? Before you can figure out what your garden needs, you have to figure out what you have. This app will help you know what are weeds and what are flowers.

    When you have a garden and you have 5 or so different plants in it, you want to know whether a plant is a weed or just a cool-looking flower. I love this app because it's so quick and easy to identify plants with it.

  • Trained help Jun 17, 2017

    By Timc266
    I echo the reviews of others that like the fact that trained botanists will review the photos submitted to give more definite answers than what simple picture comparisons may provide. I was quite happy with my answer provided, however it does cost $2 to receive such an answer. I was able to identify other plants rather easily by comparing pictures submitted of known plants to mine. There was one though I needed expert help with and the answer was prompt as promised. I think it's worth the occasional $2 for such help. The only disappointing aspect of such help was that the specific species could not be identified given the variations endemic to my region. The answer provided was still much more than I could have done on my own however. They were able to identify the genus which was more than I was able to do. 4 stars out of 5 for the prompt reply from the expert at a reasonable price but not 5 since the species could not be identified.

  • Botanist HELP - YAY! Jun 11, 2017

    By ThreeTzuMama
    This app on its own was not able to help me identify a very fragrant shrub from my front yard. What it DID do for me, however, was put me in touch with a knowledgeable individual whom I was told in advance was a Botanist, who very promptly responded (on a SUNDAY) to my submitted photos (I sent five - one of entire plant, a closer shot of a 1 foot section, and three close ups of leaf, blossoms and blossoms and leaves together) via email with my answer. They nailed it. (Pittosporum Tobira - Mock Orange!) In addition to the identification came practical information regarding the origin/care/watering/sun/pruning/pests of my plant. The app is free. The answers? $1.99 USD, which, for the prompt, accurate information plus the bonus info included was not unreasonable, I feel. If you are seriously seeking an answer to your gardening puzzle, this app may just be your best friend because if you're diligent you will get your answer. If you can't locate it on your own within the app you still have recourse to get your answer via a trained professional. VERY pleased, indeed.

    Easily Five Stars. Excellent support. Full information of the explanation of what we needed. Our question was promptly acknowledged and we were told how many responses were made ahead of mine. An hour later we had our response. The information was accurate and corresponded to the plant that we asked about. We often passed by this bush with beautiful flowers that always intrigued us as to what it was called. Easily we took a few pictures of the whole plant and close ups of the flowers and easily submitted them via the app. I used this service about six months ago and we got similar expert replies and great customer care. A small fee for the Botanist's effort and time is part of the submittal - it is worth paying this small amount for knowing how to get a plant identified that you want to bring you joy for years to come after you plant it. Thank you app Developers and Botanists!

  • Unsolicited iOS notifications May 28, 2019

    By revNickname41
    This app is one of those apps on the App Store that occasionally tugs on your shirt begging for attention by using iOS notifications just to try to get you to use it. This is a reference app. I use it when I need it. I don’t appreciate these nags. I realize I can disable notifications... but then I don’t get notified when a match is found, and I think unsolicited nags is an abuse of the notification system anyways. To some people these notifications might not be an annoyance, and I recognize that. It would be nice if we could customize what types of notifications we get. This way everyone can be happy. Other than that annoyance I think the app does a good job at doing what it says it can do.

  • Fabulous site to identify plants Mar 31, 2020

    By Vickie_qc
    I have been able to have identified all kinds of plants, bushes, trees, weeds, and even grasses with this site. I have quite a selection coming from all over the place that we have either lived in, visited, or received from friends while traveling to other countries. So far, this app has given me enough of a selection to be able to pinpoint the plant I am trying to identify. And when that doesn’t work, you can send pictures to the horticulturist who is really good at identifying it for a measly couple of bucks. So far, they have successfully identified all of my requests except for one tree, that is still more or less a mystery. I have an idea of what it might be but no confirmation. I recommend this site to everyone trying to figure out the greenery in your area.

  • Can't ID some common bedding plants Jul 23, 2018

    By Mmmnnnnggdgdgdfsuekcncb
    As an experienced gardener with a degree in botany, I thought this would be helpful when I'm out and about. So I tried it on the bedding plants on my porch to test it. While it did offer the correct item in 6 of 9 trials, only one of them was the top hit (purple spoonbill osteospermum). It completely failed on a plain red snapdragon, and a black single petunia. There was also no option to input a leaf for a non-flowering plant, such as ferns, or something grown for their leaves such as coleus. I tried my angel-wing begonia and got no results with a leaf (I did try the flower also, since it has a few at this time). Items tested also include pink semi-cactus dahlia, single yellow gerber daisy, double purple calibrachoa, double purple petunia, and purple lobelia. Since this app has failed at common bedding plants that I have no trouble with, I can't see how it would be useful to me when I see something unusual in someones yard and want to know what it is on the spot.
  • Very Poor App! Apr 13, 2017

    By Morbis59
    This App was reviewed on my local noon news program and they made it sound so wonderful and helpful so I, being in need of all the plant and gardening help I can get, downloaded this App. I was skeptical to say the least as I've had horrible results from other Apps that were "supposed" to identify things by sound or photos! This one lost out instantly! I gave it a test and it completely failed to identify my plant! It gave me well over "50" possible matches and "none" were even a tiny bit close to what my plant is! I entered a photo of my "Streptocarpus" Ladyslippers Grape Ice. Could not identify it....not even the least bit close. The matches I received were totally ridiculous no where at all what I entered! My plant is a very, very common house and garden plant that is closely related to an African Violet"! I thought this would be a simple test to see how accurate this App is! It's horrible! If it couldn't identify this simple plant, how could it identify more complicated types?! It's been deleted! Totally useless App!
  • Failure to identify an orchid plant Aug 1, 2019

    By Pimalakajaj
    I was looking more for a gardening care app but also a plant id. I saw this and thought I’d try it. It failed to identify orchid plant matched with plants I’ve never seen before except for a plant that my mom calls a snake plant which is a plant that has pointed leaves and grows straight up with a stripped detail and if the tips are broken it won’t grow. Also I do not like that you MUST subscribe for email and promotions or newsletters to sign up for free. I attempted to push the grayed out green button with out the box checked and it wouldn’t do anything. Then I noticed the button changed shades of green when the option of receiving emails was checked vs unchecked. Why make it an optional thing when it is a must to use the app? You might as well take the ability to check the box or leave it unchecked out by stating that you will receive emails while using the app. I’ve removed the app. Hopefully I can unsubscribe for promotions and such.

    Update: Paid $1.99 to get a plant ID. Never heard a thing thereafter. Dislike that one must register an email with it. The 'selection' allows only a square so you are out of luck with a taller, slender, plant. I dislike that there is no way to narrow the search such as location, so I was getting answers from the cool, wet climates for a plant in Phoenix., AZ. I like the "ask a horticulturist" feature for the $1.99 fee, but the system still limits one to square photos. You can send more photos, though, so I sent a square crop of the bottom and a square crop of the top so the viewer will see the whole plant. Lastly, there is no way to narrow the feature, such as " -toothed " -- it kept recommending pictures of toothed leaved plants which were way off base. I give it a "meh".

    I downloaded the app. I was asked if I wanted an ad free subscription for $3.99. I said yes and was charged for it. Next step was to enter my name and email address and a verification code would be sent to me in a few seconds. I received nothing. Checked my spam folder too- nothing. Looked back at the app and it still said it was verifying my email address. This went on for 10 minutes. Still nothing. Restarted my phone and tried again. Tried 3x w/ different email address. Still nothing.
  • Misleading and hollow app Jul 11, 2020

    By zeroeure
    It’s unfortunate to have to write this as it seems to be in tandem with a whole slew of apps centered around plant keeping and horticulture. If you are looking for answers, the only ones you will get from this are through the Facebook group that you would have to join. Otherwise, there’s nothing in the app. The other things to do are go through a portal of places to buy plants, which you can easily do with a web search. The ask a horticulturist laughable section is sadly only to “identify” your plant, and they literally just send you a Wikipedia article.... it’s honestly embarrassing that this is what horticultural apps have for us today. All of this I already do as a beginning plant keeper, I’m looking for a space online I can speak with others who are also hobbyists or horticulturists. This app doesn’t do any of that. It’s a shell of an app for web searches and a Facebook (cringe) group.

    Have tried using this app several times over a couple years. Should have uninstalled it a long time ago. Wastes my time. Most of the time it doesn't find the right plant, and when I find it on my own, I cannot store my searches anywhere. I thought it might be nice to keep pictures of my plants with their names, but even the free version isn't doing it successfully so why would I purchase this app?
  • Just google it Aug 27, 2021

    By Keely2442
    I love plants and gardening but houseplants are truly becoming my obsession and I have been acquiring new plants and making an active effort to study each one, it’s name, it’s preferred lighting/watering/fertilizer conditions etc. so I was excited when I heard good reviews about this app that could possibly make my plant life a little easier now that I have so many of them. Downloaded this app and another plant i.d. app and when I tried the app none of the plants the app suggested was anything close as to what my house plants from WALMART were! Took a picture of my Calathea Compact Star and the app suggestions were a philodendron(not even close!)and prayer plant(fairly close-ish) Same thing with another plant I just got. I used the google app and did an image search and it correctly identified my Calathea Compact Star.

    I used to like this app, but now it is unusable because of how many ads it opens - 12 tabs of them on my most recent try, and that was after I had to reinstall to get it to do *anything* besides open ads. Now it will let me take a photo but gives an error instead of possible identifications.

THIS APP ! Not user friendly and is NOT worth waisting your time downloading it ! THIS APP SUCKS
  • Useless waste of time Jun 25, 2017

    By TS123xyz
    I installed the app and looked at the pictures of various leaves in their database. I didn't find anything so I decided to spend the couple of dollars to have my tree identified. In addition to the picture of the leaf, I sent a picture of the tree and a picture of a branch with several leaves and the berries. After a day + I received an email saying they could not identify the plant and that I could send more picture (even though I enclosed several pictures with the submission.) I actually think this app is a fraud and that they are just stealing money with hope that most won't bother to ask for a refund. Save your 2 bucks and go buy a cup of coffee instead. It is unfortunate that what seems like a nice idea and a useful app is really just a colossal was of time and a useless app. I'll be seeking a refund though.

  • Mostly good matches, a few misses Jun 9, 2017

    By The Notorious t.i.g
    Love this app! I'm trying to naturalize a large portion of my yard, meaning lots of Weeds find they're way in. Granted, some are lovely Weeds, and this app has helped me identify ones that look great but will take over and crowd out the variety in going for. One plant had to be submitted to a horticulturist, and I received an answer in a few short hours, well worth the $1.99. Sadly, this beauty only sprouts every two years so I'll have to keep it in file when I get confused as to what it is in 2019 😀. There's one plant that has yet to be identified, mainly because the big differentiator is the flowers, which haven't happened yet. Two of the possibilities are things to remove whereas the third option is a definite keeper so I'm hesitant to yank it out just in case.
  • Identified my House Plant IMMEDIATELY! Aug 19, 2017

    By Graciiesd
    I was attempting to identify my house plant to make sure it wasn't poisonous to my new kitten and had zero luck with the LeafSnap app.. it made me needlessly 'snap' off a healthy leaf and place it on white background for contrast purposes to take a picture. After waiting almost 2 minutes it returned 26 possible plants and not ONE of them came even close to looking like my plant. So I decided to try ONE more app and I'm glad I chose this one. I didn't have to pay a dime, I just took a picture of the entire plant (no snapping off leaves or special backdrop colors needed) and BAM! It came back with two pictures both being my Exact plant!!! Took like 45 secs total... Seriously. Deleting LeafSnap immediately and keeping this super helpful and efficient app!

I have always had a love for plants and when something pops up in my yard I’ll let it be and keep it watered. If it blooms I want to know what the heck it is! They have the answer. Best plant identifier I have ever used and is definitely worth the price of having a botanist look at it! I highly recommend this app!

  • Usually really helpful...May raise to a 5 Jul 5, 2017

    By SherryLowry
    I know a good bit about plants & flowers but now that I am in Central Texas there are MANY pretty new to me to be working with directly. (...as in contrasting seeing them on a lovely Hill Country Drive from a small to quite distant view.) I've not been super successful so far with the app auto-identifying my flower pic uploads. ...And that may be photographer user-error as to the shot quality. Actually...odds are good here. What I did not know -- probably due to failure to peruse their site in detail -- is what the cost of the next level of help is. Heck, $2 even makes this sort of fun and is a good Edu investment for my bucks. If my photography improves I'll come raise this 4 to a 5 as it is definitely a well done app, generally. I live in the heart of startup land and listen, their development and Databasing investment in this is not peanuts.

There was also no option to input a leaf for a non-flowering plant, such as ferns, or something grown for their leaves such as coleus. I tried my angel-wing begonia and got no results with a leaf (I did try the flower also, since it has a few at this time). Items tested also include pink semi-cactus dahlia, single yellow gerber daisy, double purple calibrachoa, double purple petunia, and purple lobelia. Since this app has failed at common bedding plants that I have no trouble with, I can't see how it would be useful to me when I see something unusual in someones yard and want to know what it is on the spot.

    I love plants and gardening but houseplants are truly becoming my obsession and I have been acquiring new plants and making an active effort to study each one, it’s name, it’s preferred lighting/watering/fertilizer conditions etc. so I was excited when I heard good reviews about this app that could possibly make my plant life a little easier now that I have so many of them. Downloaded this app and another plant i.d. app and when I tried the app none of the plants the app suggested was anything close as to what my house plants from WALMART were! Took a picture of my Calathea Compact Star and the app suggestions were a philodendron(not even close!)and prayer plant(fairly close-ish) Same thing with another plant I just got. I used the google app and did an image search and it correctly identified my Calathea Compact Star.

    I down loaded this app based on some reviews/ratings! However, i have found this "Not to be user frinedly"! I take my picture then it doesnt give you any options! I just have to start tapping stuff! it needs to give u a place either right b4 picture or right after to put in a generalized, drop down arrow, discription of whet ur looking for! i.e. Shrub, Tree, Flowers, no flowers, leaf color - as dark green, lite green, purple..etc! Gives to many irrelavent options 1st thing!
  • Very Poor App! Apr 13, 2017

    By Morbis59
    This App was reviewed on my local noon news program and they made it sound so wonderful and helpful so I, being in need of all the plant and gardening help I can get, downloaded this App. I was skeptical to say the least as I've had horrible results from other Apps that were "supposed" to identify things by sound or photos! This one lost out instantly! I gave it a test and it completely failed to identify my plant! It gave me well over "50" possible matches and "none" were even a tiny bit close to what my plant is! I entered a photo of my "Streptocarpus" Ladyslippers Grape Ice. Could not identify it....not even the least bit close. The matches I received were totally ridiculous no where at all what I entered! My plant is a very, very common house and garden plant that is closely related to an African Violet"! I thought this would be a simple test to see how accurate this App is! It's horrible! If it couldn't identify this simple plant, how could it identify more complicated types?! It's been deleted! Totally useless App!
  • Failure to identify an orchid plant Aug 1, 2019

    By Pimalakajaj
    I was looking more for a gardening care app but also a plant id. I saw this and thought I’d try it. It failed to identify orchid plant matched with plants I’ve never seen before except for a plant that my mom calls a snake plant which is a plant that has pointed leaves and grows straight up with a stripped detail and if the tips are broken it won’t grow. Also I do not like that you MUST subscribe for email and promotions or newsletters to sign up for free. I attempted to push the grayed out green button with out the box checked and it wouldn’t do anything. Then I noticed the button changed shades of green when the option of receiving emails was checked vs unchecked. Why make it an optional thing when it is a must to use the app? You might as well take the ability to check the box or leave it unchecked out by stating that you will receive emails while using the app. I’ve removed the app. Hopefully I can unsubscribe for promotions and such.

    Update: Paid $1.99 to get a plant ID. Never heard a thing thereafter. Dislike that one must register an email with it. The 'selection' allows only a square so you are out of luck with a taller, slender, plant. I dislike that there is no way to narrow the search such as location, so I was getting answers from the cool, wet climates for a plant in Phoenix., AZ. I like the "ask a horticulturist" feature for the $1.99 fee, but the system still limits one to square photos. You can send more photos, though, so I sent a square crop of the bottom and a square crop of the top so the viewer will see the whole plant. Lastly, there is no way to narrow the feature, such as " -toothed " -- it kept recommending pictures of toothed leaved plants which were way off base. I give it a "meh".

    I downloaded the app. I was asked if I wanted an ad free subscription for $3.99. I said yes and was charged for it. Next step was to enter my name and email address and a verification code would be sent to me in a few seconds. I received nothing. Checked my spam folder too- nothing. Looked back at the app and it still said it was verifying my email address. This went on for 10 minutes. Still nothing. Restarted my phone and tried again. Tried 3x w/ different email address. Still nothing.
  • Misleading and hollow app Jul 11, 2020

    It’s unfortunate to have to write this as it seems to be in tandem with a whole slew of apps centered around plant keeping and horticulture. If you are looking for answers, the only ones you will get from this are through the Facebook group that you would have to join. Otherwise, there’s nothing in the app. The other things to do are go through a portal of places to buy plants, which you can easily do with a web search. The ask a horticulturist laughable section is sadly only to “identify” your plant, and they literally just send you a Wikipedia article.... it’s honestly embarrassing that this is what horticultural apps have for us today. All of this I already do as a beginning plant keeper, I’m looking for a space online I can speak with others who are also hobbyists or horticulturists. This app doesn’t do any of that. It’s a shell of an app for web searches and a Facebook (cringe) group.

    Have tried using this app several times over a couple years. Should have uninstalled it a long time ago. Wastes my time. Most of the time it doesn't find the right plant, and when I find it on my own, I cannot store my searches anywhere. I thought it might be nice to keep pictures of my plants with their names, but even the free version isn't doing it successfully so why would I purchase this app?

    I used to like this app, but now it is unusable because of how many ads it opens - 12 tabs of them on my most recent try, and that was after I had to reinstall to get it to do *anything* besides open ads. Now it will let me take a photo but gives an error instead of possible identifications.

    downloaded this app to use and the only thing I've seen is it blowing its own horn ! if i hadn't already read the advertisement and information on it , i wouldn't have downloaded it , all i get when I jump through all the hoops to use it is advertising for guess what !!!!! THIS APP ! Not user friendly and is NOT worth waisting your time downloading it ! THIS APP SUCKS
  • Useless waste of time Jun 25, 2017

    I installed the app and looked at the pictures of various leaves in their database. I didn't find anything so I decided to spend the couple of dollars to have my tree identified. In addition to the picture of the leaf, I sent a picture of the tree and a picture of a branch with several leaves and the berries. After a day + I received an email saying they could not identify the plant and that I could send more picture (even though I enclosed several pictures with the submission.) I actually think this app is a fraud and that they are just stealing money with hope that most won't bother to ask for a refund. Save your 2 bucks and go buy a cup of coffee instead. It is unfortunate that what seems like a nice idea and a useful app is really just a colossal was of time and a useless app. I'll be seeking a refund though.
