    The world is home to various types of plants and trees, making it difficult to recognize uncommon ones. With over 1000 different plant species, you can be overwhelmed. Whether you’re a gardener, researcher or just came across a plant for the first time, you can identify it from your smartphone.

    Help your children to better study and understand the several plants on planet Earth. This tool provides information about plants; all you have to do is upload their pictures, and it’ll give you their names and features immediately. It recognizes more than 20,000 plants.

    Have tried a few of these plant identification apps over the past 6 or so years. Honestly I feel like they all use very similar photo recognition software, if not the exact same. So they all do a pretty swell job (including this app) at locating the correct plant species via a user uploaded photo. However, this app is free and takes donations to stay afloat, rather than subscriptions. This fact alone causes me to like this app way more than the rest. I like being given the option to support this app, when it is financially feasible for me and my budget. I think this method will bring grow the community within the app, and strengthen the membership as a whole. The one suggestion I have is to maybe clean up the interface. It’s a little clunky, and awkward. Not too user friendly in all aspects, although it is in a few. In some areas there are more options to choose from where there needs to be less, and in other areas there are less options to choose from where there needs to be more. There should be more regions to choose from when saving your identified plant photo & information. Otherwise it’s a solid app, and I am happy with my download... thank you! Cheers!

    So fun to use! I found the name of a plant that I thought were going to be tomatoes. It turns out that eating 10 of those things would KILL YOU! I don't even know where it came from. It started growing in a pot and I cultivated it! Oooo Lord thank God for PlantNet!

    During covid-19 sheltering and shutdowns, my plant love has rekindled ever brighter on my neighborhood walks. Of all the 4 plant apps i downloaded to help me identify the abundance of flaura here, PlantNet is my #1 go to. It makes me happy and is extremely user friendly to navigate. So much so, i want to interview these awesome developers to learn from their mastery and see if maybe there is a way to work with them develop an ocean app that keeps percolating for me. It involved coral reef restoration - art, sci, tech, international community involvement. I'm not an avid app user, yet this app inspires and delivers. I am an artist working with ecology; so grateful for PlantNet. Thanks for creating this wonderful world of fun and discovery to keep me engaged with beautiful aliveness during the pandemic.

    I love how accurate it is. The camera recognition is fantastic. Such a cool feeling taking a picture of a leaf and then seeing the exact same plant pop up on the screen. Love this app!
  • My Fav App, But Mar 15, 2021

    By Honeypouf
    This is really the only app I use for Plant ID. I like the community effort that goes into the data, especially different photo inputs from people because it helps me compare and see slight differences for comparison. It’s the app I recommend to other plant enthusiasts. I prefer it because I like the layout, it’s usability, and it’s accessibility. Other apps are behind a paywall or require sign up with personal information; I never get far enough to use them - I delete those almost as soon as they are installed. One thing I dislike about this app is that while more information for the plants are available by clicking on the plant name after you ID your photo(s) is that there is no way to highlight the text to copy/paste OR share the findings with another. I have to manually look up the plant again in a search engine using the common name and then find the Wiki article again. I can’t memorize the scientific names, or type them all out when sharing on the go in a busy day.

    I’ve always been in love with the natural world and this app has opened a whole new door to it for me. It’s only the 2nd app like this I’ve tried but Plantnet has exceeded my expectations. Only a couple small deviations I’ve found so far that if worked out could help take away one of the ?’s when trying to identify a plant and improve the over all quality When I search a identical picture of a plant from my LG phone and IPad I get two different results. For example, I had 5 results on the LG and 11 on the iPad. I believe the lesser number of results is always the same to the larger but why two different results? Also little more detail about the environment where they originated, uses, lifespan, are they threatened or endangered and a short summary how to care for would be amazing! It’s a great app though. Well done Plantnet! Can’t wait to continue growing my collection and discovering more of this near secret world of botany around us all.
  • Change and accuracy Apr 14, 2021

    By Cool jey
    Writing this to help development. I’ve used this app a few years but haven’t used in last 6 months months or so until recently. It used to be extremely accurate in id’ing my pics with a plant - I’m not looking up any unusual plants, I just forget the names of common plants. however the past few times ( in the last month or two), the app does not come close to identifying a match. It seems to be related to a change to this auto flora filter that wasn’t there before but I really don’t know. I’ve noticed when I expanded outside the US flora it found my plant last time. Which is odd considering I’m in the US! But in any case, something has changed that is impacting accuracy that I’ve not experienced in the past. Maybe it’s just dumb luck ( or unluck) but it may be worth the feedback.

    excellent app to guide you instantly by online identify any plant, fruits, vegetables etc you may find around you anywhere even from damaged or altered status. Useful to avoid poisoned toxic variants and therefor saving your life from confused species. At last but not at least... it is free despite many similar even weaker apps
  • Fantastic with a grain of salt Jul 17, 2021

    By suffogrind
    The app is really a wonderful resource and is fairly accurate. The problem is the human error factor. It compiles positive identifications that people upload-but people sometimes don't look close enough and log a false positive- so a bunch of photos are associated with an Inaccurate id in perpetuity. Generally the app has the correct ID within its top five, and perhaps a double check online by users would make it perfectly accurate.... I do not hold my breath. The simple fact that it is free, gives it a pass, and with a little bit of diligence on our parts, it could be the greatest resource out there. Overall 5 stars, with a grain of salt as the idiom goes-lol.

    Fair IDing Capabilities, no ability to copy and paste in/from the app, making researching or purchasing plants inconvenient and tedious. This lack of copy and paste leads me to believe that the company is just going to privatize and monetize the community's work. :(

  • First time using… Sep 7, 2021

    By landscapeDB
    I decided to try this app today and when I opened it all I had to do was to snap a shot and it identified the plant very accurately. I was able to add all plants to My Plants section however, when I went to open it again later, the whole home page had changed and my list was gone and so was the My Plants section at the bottom. I tried taking a pic again and this time it became a four-step process having to pic Family or Genus etc. don’t know why it changed but I wouldn’t pass this app on to anyone based on my experience.

    I go around my garden using the app and discussing the plants we have with company.. or the new neighbor comes in the spring before plants have flowered and asks what her plants are in her yard and I use the app to help her decide what to keep and not. very helpful and easy to use
  • So helpful, love it Jun 10, 2019

    By Peter Dont Buy Anything
    unlike most other apps like this in the app store, this is completely free. no in app purchases, not even any ads! i love how with non-native plants, if there is no native match, the search engine will suggest plants from other parts of the world, and that has really come in handy. it is also great in that with any picture, you can choose what part of the plant is in the picture/what you’d like to identify, and along with the closest match, it also gives other possibilities and relatives. great app, all i ask is that you don’t sell out and start making this cost money!

    Great identification by tree bark alone. Much better than other apps I have used. It even ask how you want to identify. Bark, leaf, ect.
  • Aug 31, 2021

    By C Nankivell Jr
    This app works great for identifying plants. The 1st plant I checked was poison ivy, and the 2nd was poison oak. Definitely recommend you to check it out if you want to know the plants, flowers, weeds around your location.
  • Best plant identifier app so far Jun 2, 2021

    By pjsiem
    I’ve tried many apps to identify plants. So far this one takes first place. The interface is easy to use. What i love the most is that it gives you various suggestions with percentages of how likely it is to be said plant. It also shows you many pictures of the plant shared by the community so you can scroll and compare. I love this app. The only suggestion I can add is to allow us to create a group of the plants we own.

So they all do a pretty swell job (including this app) at locating the correct plant species via a user uploaded photo. However, this app is free and takes donations to stay afloat, rather than subscriptions. This fact alone causes me to like this app way more than the rest. I like being given the option to support this app, when it is financially feasible for me and my budget. I think this method will bring grow the community within the app, and strengthen the membership as a whole. The one suggestion I have is to maybe clean up the interface. It’s a little clunky, and awkward. Not too user friendly in all aspects, although it is in a few. In some areas there are more options to choose from where there needs to be less, and in other areas there are less options to choose from where there needs to be more. There should be more regions to choose from when saving your identified plant photo & information. Otherwise it’s a solid app, and I am happy with my download... thank you! Cheers!

  • Good app Jul 24, 2020

    By Bindybox
    I use this app together with another app. This helps me narrow down or confirm this app’s identification. PlantNet seems to be right most of the time, which cannot be said for some other apps... I wish, however, that the app makers would amend a feature: under the information section that comes in the plant’s description, the “Uses” section would be more accurate and scientifically based. It is not valid to state that a plant is a “weed”, particularly if it is native to an area, possibly experiencing decline in numbers due to habitat destruction, and essential for ecosystem function. Even if a plant is successful and aggressive (sometimes obnoxiously so), it is not a weed if it is native.

    It misidentifies a plant on occasion, but it's still far better than the others I've tried.
  • Awesome 👍 Nov 17, 2020

    By showstopper891
    I love this app. It is a great app! I highly recommend this app for plant identification. But there are a few cons... I don’t love how you are not allowed to say you don’t know what category it is in. When the option is there?! But it is a great app. I also don’t like that even if you get a clear picture it says unidentifiable. I get you can get everything but say sorry the app does not know. If I could I would give this a 4 and a half. Overall great app
  • The AI is great, other details... Jun 24, 2020

    By This nickname was taken2
    It’s amazing to watch the ID happen moments after uploading one pic. Other details of the app are not great. I kept trying to add a pic from my camera roll and then supplement w a newly taken photo of the same specimen. Not possible, plus renders the first set of pics unsubmittable. Also adding pics from camera roll causes them to be duplicated in the roll. Annoying. Barebones explanations generally. Not at all clear what the stars mean.
