If you love gardening or you’re just curious about nature, Plantum is a must-have addition to your iPhone. It can instantly identify all kinds of plants just by taking a simple photo.

For a limited time, you can get lifetime access to this AI-powered plant ID app for only $14.97.

Plantum app: Your pocket botanist

There are around 17,000 native plant species in the United States. Plus, you can find more than 3,800 imported species in gardens, farmland and forest. And there there’s all the native algae, lichens and fungi. Even for an expert botanist, remembering and recognizing even half of these flora is pretty much impossible.

Enter Plantum, an app that plant lovers are raving about. Already downloaded 20 million times on iOS, this powerful tool uses cutting-edge AI technology to pick out the distinguishing features of plants from a quick photo.

It might sound unlikely, but the technology really works. Plantum can recognize more than 15,000 species of plants with 98% accuracy. Even more impressively, the ID process takes just three seconds.

How to identify plants with Plantum

To use Plantum, you simply select a photo from your iPhone’s Camera Roll or open the in-app camera. Plantum then analyzes the image and shows you the closest species match. The app offers images and detailed information on every plant in the database.

And that’s not all. Plantum also acts like a botanical adviser. The app can recognize common diseases, and offer important information on caring for your own plants. It even has a light meter, which tells you the perfect spot for any specimen. It’s perfect for people who need an automatic watering pot to keep their plants alive!

All these features make the Plantum app a massive hit with plant lovers. It earned 4.6 out of 5 stars on the App Store, and was named by Well+Good as one of the best apps to “identify your plants and help you save them from the brink of death.”
