I only wish it would allow to customize the places. For example I have different porches and the app doesn’t provide how how to differentiate each one. Beyond that, it’s perfect!
The app seems really great and helpful, but I can’t afford the premium subscription which means that I miss out on so many cool features like plant identification by picture, and plant recommendations by room.
I was a premium member and used this mostly because I would forget when the last time I watered my plants were and I wanted to keep track. The identification software was great and very accurate, however i felt like it was telling me to water and fertilize way too often. I’m def not an expert but Every other source says 1-2 weeks for most indoor plants depending on the season, but this had me at almost every four days. And shouldn’t fertilizing be seasonal as well??
i bought it for identifying plants, imformation, and many other things. guess what. everything costs money. theres a premium for everything.
Wish there was a vacation mode and we could name each individual plant what we wanted
I am someone who loves to feel organized, so this app has been such an amazing addition to my plant care routine. I feel like I actually have a routine now! I’m really just getting into the plant care world (really trying to learn how to best take care of them), so it has been amazing to be reminded when to water, mist, fertilize, repot, and clean all of my plants with the premium subscription. It’s great that you can snooze actions if, for example, it’s not quite time to water. I also really love the fact that the app keeps track of all the photos that you submit so that you can track the progress - no more scrolling through all of my photos to see what a plant looked like in the past! Plus, I have really liked seeing the plant suggestions for my space, as I want to grow my collection more. Planta has truly become such an enjoyable part of my everyday life! Something I would love to see is a feature that allows you to specify whether a plant is being propagated in water. I have a few water propagations going myself, so the fact that the app thinks they are in soil leaves the data on those plants a bit inaccurate. I also wish there was a way to be more specific about the amount of light that each plant is receiving within the room that it’s in. For example, I have a spider plant in a room with south facing windows. The app thinks that it is getting too much sun because of this, but the plant is pulled away from the windows enough to really not get much direct sun at all. I know that the plant is fine there - thriving, really - but the app thinks it needs to be relocated to a darker room. Overall, I highly recommend to any plant enthusiasts out there. This has quickly become one of my favorite apps!
This app shouldn’t be a subscription but a lifetime purchase.
I’m a brand new user, but I like how easy it is to keep things in one place. Tried Vera first and set up all 70 of my plants, but frustrated by not being able to easily adapt watering schedules for different seasons and the manual work needed for each plant. Couple suggestions for developers on Planta: - ability to edit plants’ light by different locations in the room - near a window, etc. the light in some of my rooms can vary a lot depending on room size etc. - ability to modify history - when adding new plants, would be nice to be able to manually add last time it was watered instead of everything defaulting to need watering the day it’s added. - way to “share” plants that need care while you’re away - so I could export my plants to a friend if they’re going to help plant babies when out of town & they know exactly what needs to be done
seems like a great app but don't let me download it if i have to become a premium member to even use it.
