i did as it told me to , and my plants were in HORRIBLE condition
I stood in a nursery and tried to use this app to determine if the care of a plant was what I was looking for. It misidentified 2 out of 6 plants. Disappointing as I find the idea of the app brilliant.
Identifies my kalanchoes as African violets every time. Don’t buy it.
Even after you pay for the app it then prompts you to pay a subscription (which the description fails to mention) and it can’t identify even basic succulents. Wish I could get my money back.
I ran a test on a calathea musaica network plant, a pink princess philodendron and a golden goddess philodendron and it could not identify any of them. Not happy. It also said that a fiddle leaf I have with a hole from wear in the leaves has aphids due to the hole. Unimpressed.
The plant identification was ineffective (it thought my succulent was an African violet and was unable to identify others) so if that feature is important to you, I would find another app. It was important to me, so I chose to delete the app. I also thought it was odd that the app tried to keep me from canceling my trial by offering me a lifetime subscription for $19.99 when the price for a year is $29.99. It seems like that should have been the price to begin with. The price haggling felt like dealing with a cable company. I did appreciate that there was a free trial so I was able to try the app before committing to a subscription.
It seems like a really cool app, but you can only identify two plants a day without a sub. There’s also so many features that look awesome, that are only available in the sub... which is a bit pricey.
This app did not correctly identify any of the plants in my home (Golden Pothos, Spider Plant, or Aloe Vera). I wanted to try this app to see if it could identify some of the browning and disease on one of my plants, but you can’t even try that feature without buying it. If I could have had a free week to try out ALL the features, I would have been more willing to pay the $30 for a year (or even the $50 lifetime subscription), but without knowing if it will actually be useful, I cannot justify it. Google is free anyways ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Not interested in this app
I got the year subscription, thinking That the additional features would have been more developed. I was disappointed to find that the cure disease diagnoses for all plants are pretty close to the same. Which is fine, because that part seemed a little too good to be true. The part that really upset me is that not one plant care description notes the light requirements for the plant. I have had to look those up on google. Which for a plant care app, is pretty disappointing. If I could, I would get my money back and invest it in another app. That being said, the care reminders are helpful and the identification feature works pretty well.
