  • Great app for keeping your plants healthy! Sep 7, 2020

    By elev82
    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. 😊

    I changed my review after buying the subscription. It's a great app however I'm not sure how to select that I have watered a plant before the app's scheduled care. I've tried a few different ways. I do like the plant identifier, the light meter hasn't worked for me yet I've never heard the "beep" but I have moved a few of my plants because I had them in the wrong spots and so far I haven't forgotten to water anything.

  • Great app - needs more details Jul 8, 2020

    By emma damato
    So I’ve been using the free version of this app for a few months and I wanted to try out the premium version so I know when to fertilize and all. I’m glad it tells you when to fertilize, but every plant says “all purpose fertilizer” which honestly if you use that on all of your plants you will burn some roots and kill them. Some house plants need a specific fertilizer. And it’d be cool if there were some natural alternatives in there as well, like banana peel water. Also, add what kind of soil you should use! There should totally be a big soil section, but not one that just says “all purpose potting soil” like, definitely have someone who knows what they’re doing tell you what different mediums to mix for this certain plant. (Coco coir, peat moss, perlite etc.) If you added these small details I’m sure you’d have much more business. The right soil and fertilizer is so important for growth. One more thing, do some quick research on each of your plants to make sure Planta is giving you the right info. I’ve been barely watering my rubber trees and letting them dry out because that’s what planta said, but I just did some research and saw that they need to stay moist during the summer 🤦🏻‍♀️ sooooo, that’s why two of my rubber trees are drooping and dropping leaves. Overall, I’m super grateful for this app because I could never keep up with my 47 plants without it, but definitely could use some more details!

    I really like the app and it has helped me a lot even doing the free version. I wish it had a few more options or additions on the location parameters. One thing that is really getting to be is that randomly a couple plants will be removed from my list without me knowing. Not sure how long it is before i realize the plant is dry. Tired of second guessing and adding the same plants back on.

  • Best app out of all the other Oct 14, 2020

    By Ritz8D
    I was struggling to find an app I kept deleting some because they never notify in time, they never recognized my plant, or their plant spectrum was not broad enough. I really like this app it gives you information about your plant that I never knew. I hesitated on getting the subscription but I’m glad I made the decision on buying it. The plant doctor is so helpful it tells what I’m doing wrong when I didn’t realize that I was doing harm to the plants. I love the schedule misting option cause most of my plants need that and I forget to do that when I live in a dry area. The only reason why I didn’t give it all 5 stars because it has some flaws I hope they can fix. For example live in Los Angeles and the app says the weather here is 70 degrees which in reality it’s either 80 or 90 😣 so I don’t know if that will affect my plants watering at night since it tells me to water them longer than I usually do. Talking about the watering schedule I wish it has a schedule of setting a LOUD alarm at a specific time because I am a college student the only time I can care for my plant is between 10-11 o’clock am and I know I can’t water them later because of my assignments; another thing is when I water them at night, I learned the hard way, my plants are more prone to pests and bacteria. If anyone is reading this help to get the developers attention to fix this app I really like it.

  • Needs to be improved Mar 8, 2021

    By Aracely-----
    One thing that doesn’t make sense is the fact that you can’t personalize the dates for when it notifies you to water your plants. The day you download the add is the automatic day all your plants need to be watered. What if I had watered my plant before I downloaded the app? Also some of my plants don’t need to be watered yet but I continue to get notifications that I have tasks that are late. Also I gave one of my plants extra water and I wasn’t able to track it because the app considered it to early so the option wasn’t even given to document it. Also it sets automatic days you have to water your plant. For example every 9 days you have to water your monstera but this doesn’t consider the size of the plant. A bigger plant has different watering needs then a smaller plant of the same kind. I do like the plant helper feature that helps you diagnose what’s wrong with your plant. I also like how it has a lot of information about a wide variety of plants and includes pictures. Another think I forgot is the app is demanding me to repot my plant but why?? There is no reason to so why am I getting the notification to do it? All the information I gave was that my plant was in a plastic pot in a medium lit room. What could have indicated I needed to repot my plant from that information given? The light meter feature was also helpful might I add. I was a premium member for about 4 weeks but now I think I’m switching to another app.

  • Good concept, but needs work May 7, 2020

    By Adayday
    I almost don’t want to recommend any new plant owners use this app, with the fixed watering schedule without knowing your location and tracking your local weather, you may get your plants killed with this app. I’ve been using the app for one month now. I’m not an expert on plants, but I have about 20 indoor and outdoor plants that lives over 5+ years. A healthy plant requires more than just watering, it also depends on lighting, and local weather. Even in the same house, you may experienced a plant grows different on a different location of the house. For Planta’s free plant, it only offers FIXED watering dates, which you can’t even make personalization changes. Does paid version fix this problem? It didn’t say—this, the marketing team did a bad job on promoting the paid version. With the fixed schedule, for my tomato I bought in March, it’s recommending to water every 3 days, until today, May 7, it still says the same thing. But I live in California and today the highest temperature is above 90, you basically have to water tomato everyday otherwise it’s gonna die. Same with my indoor plants. One plant I’ve been watering it once a week for years, then Planta suggests to water it every two weeks. I decided to give it a try, and going to stop this suggestion as I see the plant leaves gotten bad. I’m currently debating on deleting this app, as I don’t see its being actually helpful.

  • One Addition I Think Should Be Added, Considering The Price! Sep 2, 2020

    By Bruce MacFergus
    I downloaded this after seeing it in the Apple store, but upon seeing the price for a year, and no permanent price, for instance, I was rather dismayed to discover that there wasn’t a list of the current plants that could be shown to us with their photos and common and scientific names, before we purchase this app for any length of time or of the premium plan! I happen to be a multi year customer of two major nurseries back east, in Connecticut and in Florida, and they have a vast selection of the rarest tropical plants and tropical flowers and tropical fruit, of anywhere in the country, and possibly in the entire world including Australia! Before I would purchase this, I would want to have communications with this developer and give them the names of those nurseries and await their response, and know that they do have all of the needed information first! I am not about to pay down $36, and then find it won’t be of little or any use to me! But I think they give us too little to make any real determination about whether we want his app or not, and rather force us into paying for this before we have any real idea of how much good or not, it would do us in attending to our plants correctly, considering the vast array of plants that are out there! It’s much easier to get information about plants that grow in this United States, but not from outside of our borders!

  • Not for desert-dwellers Feb 22, 2021

    By EmilyClair2255
    So admittedly I’m new at plants, but even with the location classification, the watering schedule is way off. I’m from Phoenix, and the app told me to water a dracaena once a month... lol. I left for a week and the soil was bone-dry. It’s too bad- the app is beautifully done. I’ll try setting my own schedules, but that seems like it defeats the purpose of the app. ETA: I triple-checked my inputs. 9b, dry air, draft, correct temp, partial sun, and nursery pot. Literally the exact plant type from the sign. And we’re talking bone-dry, crispy-tips, soil-comes-out-in-one-brick level. I don’t think there’s any dracaena that wants to be that dry for 20 days, especially one that likes humidity (I should add that it has its own humidifier that’s on a daily timer). I also asked around last time I was at the nursery, and they said 10-14 days. I’ve been taking moisture readings daily and in its current location, the soil from the nursery dries completely in 6 days. I am having similar results with my other plants, as well, but most of them are desert plants who aren’t as dramatic about moisture as the dracaena is. If I missed something, please let me know. Again, it’s an awesome app and I have no doubt it works perfectly for the majority of people. If I had 50 bucks to just mess around with pro, maybe it would work better. The free version’s recommendations just aren’t gonna work for me.

    great app so far. Update: changing to a 5 because you responded to my comment lol. The only recommendation I have is to include more information on unhealthy plants. For me, this could best be done by listing common issues (lighting, watering, pests) and including a pic of what an unhealthy plant would look like with each condition! A large undertaking for an update, but I haven't found a large database that's provides guidance like that and it would be a valuable addition to Planta :)

  • So easy and functional. Feb 12, 2021

    By SallyIvo
    I have about 30 plants of all kinds in my house. I needed a plant management system to help me. I have tried three systems with just five plants each to see which system had the most features and also was easy to use. I used the premium feature that has to be paid for on two of the apps. After two weeks of kicking the tires on each one, I found Planta to have the most features right at the place where you need them. Here is an example- the plant watering schedule will list all the plants that need watering that day with a picture you provided or the one out of their library. Let’s say your plant does not need watering that day and you want more info on the watering requirements of that plant. Just click on plant picture and then all the plant info appears. It presents this cool chart for each plant showing the water requirements by month so you can adjust your watering requirements. So in the warm period (Feb-Octin your plant hardiness zone) you can set the watering schedule you need to do. Then you can set a different watering schedule for that plant in the cold period. Pretty cool and so easy. I am still trying out all the other features. Great app.

    So far so good! I have never been able to keep a plant alive for longer than a couple months. I downloaded this a month or so ago and my plants have never looked healthier! Turns out I was doing a bunch of things wrong 😅😆 I've even managed to bring my dying bamboo plant back. I would highly recommend this app if you struggle to keep anything alive.

    Huge fan, I was skeptical of this app at first because of the subscription but using it without sub for a few weeks now, I am truly grateful to this app. It's helpful and keeps me on track with watering my plants. You can setup rooms with their sunlight level and then add plants to each room, it's honestly so helpful. I didn't listen to the app when I put a succulent in a slightly darker room than my bright office and sure enough, the succulent immediately died. The app knows what's best!

  • Some bugs that need fixing Sep 13, 2020

    By Sasha Dejoras
    Overall, I think this app is great! I paid for the annual subscription. As a plant novice, the watering/fertilizing/misting schedule has, if anything, helped me to become more familiar with my plants. There a few things I think could use some improvement. -Sometimes, based on the “info” portion for each plant, the app will say for example “water every 6th day in September”. However I would notice that I wouldn’t get a notification to water that plant even after 6 days have passed -fertilizing/watering schedule. The app will notify you when it’s time to fertilize your plant, which must be done with a watering. However, once you have performed and checked off the task for fertilizing, you then have to add an extra task that you’ve watered the plant. If not, the app will think that perhaps you haven’t watered since the last check-off, and will then remind to water at a sooner than necessary date, which may lead to overwatering. So typically, whenever there is a reminder to fertilize and no reminder on the same day to water, I’ll have to go to the plant profile and determine if I should snooze the fertilize task, or both water and fertilize that day. Or perhaps the main issue is that the app will remind to fertilize when it’s not even time for a watering. It can get confusing, but I’ve found my way around it.

    I like it but it would be nice if you could manually add unlisted plants and manually enter the water, misting and fertilizing schedule. Similarly, being able to record an unscheduled event (i.e. I watered the plant because I repotted it outside the normal watering schedule). I also wish the misting logic was improved. I have some plants show a misting and watering task on the same day, which seems counterintuitive. Great app but room to improve.

    Wants me to water plants a lot less frequently than I think they need -- even when I set the area conditions as very dry and drafty, the watering schedule stays the same. When doing progress reports, taking a photo resets the plant health to "good". As a workaround I've started taking the photo first, then filling out the top section afterwards. Also, even though I've set my privacy settings to keep my photos private, the progress report photo defaults to "everyone" EVERY TIME.

  • Could be improved Jul 18, 2020

    By heartisanite
    I’m a paid member, and I absolutely love this app. It keeps me on track when the number of plants I have to take care of is overwhelming. It’s beautiful and gives great information on each plant. The reason for 3 stars is because I think there are so many ways it could be improved. Namely, more customizations and better care info. I wish I could give my pilea plant a custom task like “rotate once every three days” or something. Or I could choose which image I want as the main picture for my plant while still adding more pictures in its personal album. I wish the app included the size of the pot in how often we need to water, because my smaller pots need water much more often than my larger ones too. I also wished the care instructions were more in depth. Each plant is given the same categories of care, but as plant owners know, some plants have very specific care needs. It would be great if each plant had its own small blurb at the end written by someone at the planta team which felt more personal. These suggestions are just to name a few. I hope with more and more updates we start to see an app with better functionality while still keep its clean and easy-to-use look.

  • Almost love this! Apr 3, 2020

    By JazziFizzleStix
    This app is so close to a 4-star in my book, but it could be a 5-star app. I’m a Planta user and pay for the membership because it is worth it compared to other apps like this. The app is nice! It allows you to find out what any unknown new plant friends you brought in. It helps you determine the best place to put your plants. It even reminds you when to water, mist, and fertilize. However, you only have access to some of these functions as a paying member. I think it would be nice to allow these functions for free but offer paying members access to online plant help through the app for beginners to work one on one and maybe open forums for users to chat when help isn’t available? Also, I feel like there are fewer “homesteader” plant options available, which leads me to having to turn to other sources. I think that especially right now, the app would benefit from that. Many people are starting to grow their own foods at home right now. Also it would be cool to see how-to content about care for each plant. You could have people submit videos to reach out to the public about this. Taking care of my plants has been one of the things getting me through this!

    I've had the premium version of this app for over a year and I absolutely loved it. Yes it's schedule isn't perfect but it definitely helps to keep track of watering and all that extra stuff because over the summer I had amidst 160 plants... So why the two stars? See originally I would have given this app a 5 star rating, but up until 3 months ago the app completely stopped working, I've almost never had an issue with its before, but now it's so glitchy I can't keep track of any of my plants. I have to choose out the app about 7 times before I can actually do anything... And if I try to go to my daily tasks forget about it. I don't want to delete it because i have over a years worth of plant info on there but honestly I don't even use the app anymore. I've had to learn to just put my plants on a "judgment" schedule... It gets a bit overwhelming at times because I have to many plants and I wish the app worked. I've tried everything but Uninstalling the app for fear of losing all my info... I really hope you guys get all these glitches fixed... This was my favorite plant app hands down.

I happen to be a multi year customer of two major nurseries back east, in Connecticut and in Florida, and they have a vast selection of the rarest tropical plants and tropical flowers and tropical fruit, of anywhere in the country, and possibly in the entire world including Australia! Before I would purchase this, I would want to have communications with this developer and give them the names of those nurseries and await their response, and know that they do have all of the needed information first! I am not about to pay down $36, and then find it won’t be of little or any use to me! But I think they give us too little to make any real determination about whether we want his app or not, and rather force us into paying for this before we have any real idea of how much good or not, it would do us in attending to our plants correctly, considering the vast array of plants that are out there! It’s much easier to get information about plants that grow in this United States, but not from outside of our borders!

    Not the greatest experience thus far. The ivy plant I've had for over a year and thriving became overwatered following Dr. Planta's directions, and now I'm trying every trick I know to save his life. Tried to use the plant hospital and all it basically told me was there was nothing that could be done and he was as good as dead. The advice available is not exactly comprehensive, and is really only good for someone who either knows absolutely nothing or knows enough to ignore some of the prompts.

    This app achieves the very basics, but that’s it. For what I paid, I expected a lot more. The ailment diagnostic and treatment feature is practically unusable. I have gone in several times already knowing my plant’s ailment and have not gotten the right answer after answering all of Planta's prompts. I had to enter them manually, which was STILL harder than it had to be. Just let me click a button that says my plant has sunburn! Other ailments like thrips it tells you how to treat and then when you click that you’ve done it for the day it says you’ve “cured” thrips. Anyone who has battled thrips knows one treatment does not cure thrips. So this feature is not accurate or useful. Plant ID is completely inaccurate and there are a shocking number of common houseplants missing or labeled in a super weird way in the app. The light meter, one of the premium features, did not work. It told me every room was dark, including my south facing windows. Lastly, it gives you way too many things to do for each plant, I think just to make you think you need the app. My plants do not need to be misted twice a week. That is absolutely bonkers. No chance I am continuing my subscription of this app.
