Planta is a dedicated plant care and identification app that helps users take care of their plants recommends the right planting techniques based on the plant species and notifies users of necessary planting activities as set by the users.

Planta has detailed plant-keeping guides that talk about everything from choosing the right type of pot to placing your plant under the right shelter.

It has short and simple forms that ask major details about your plants, such as whether you’ll place the new plant indoors or outdoors.

The app saves the data and creates custom guides with quick tips and tricks that make it easier for plant enthusiasts to take good care of their green friends.

Home and lifestyle magazines like Bust, The Ringer, and Daily Dot have featured Planta as one of the best plant and home garden care apps available online.


How is Planta App Making a Difference?

According to National Gardening Survey 2019, American gardeners spent $52.3 billion on plants and garden retail in 2019. More than a quarter of these proceedings came from people aged between 18 to 34 years.

During further research, it was found that what only started as a social media fad had soon turned into hobbies and even full-time businesses for many people. Now because there are so many ‘plant people’ in this specific decade, primarily because:

  • people are almost locked down inside their homes
  • millennials are turning to pet plants
  • indoor plants are good for physical and mental health
  • and plants destress when they are kept in home offices,

a premium app like Planta is playing the vital role of a virtual plant caretaker: recommending plant wellness tips and tricks to help over 200,000 plant people on different stages of their journeys – from hopeless plant fanatics to masters.

Within 2 years, it became something more than a plant identifier and now is a complete plant care app solution that processes users’ requirements and creates personalized plant care recommendations depending on users’ current skillset, interests, and time they want to dedicate to their green friends.

While trends for plant care started from Instagram and Facebook, it is now a popular activity: a home décor concept and part of the wellness movement led by millennials. That’s where the Planta app jumped in, identified the market gap, and capitalized on it.

What’s more surprising?

After the Planta app got launched in September 2018, several other paid and free plant apps came to Google Play and the Apple store and are operating successfully – and profitably!

A thorough business analysis of Planta and TeeMates (a golfing social media app) teaches us the power and importance of a unique idea in today’s business ecosystem. Another mobile app, AMJ Workplace Wellness, is dedicated to improving corporate employees’ physical and mental health.

What’s common in these mobile applications? 

All of these digital solutions are profitable business startups and have their roots in social concerns. For a successful business startup in 2021, all you have to do is look around yourself, find a social problem that concerns you, research the causes of the problem, and develop a mobile application that solves the problem for your target audience.

How Does Planta App Work?

Plant identifier, customized planting recommendations, and techniques based on specific users’ knowledge and skills levels are three core reasons that make Planta the best plant care app in the stores.

After downloading Planta, the first thing users can do is scan each plant they have at their home or home office. Then add their details, existing plant care routines, set their own care alarms, the light and temperature of the plant shelter, and their personal skill level in plant care.

Furthermore, users can use the plant identification feature in the app to scan their old and new plants. The feature identifies the plant species and fetches relevant details necessary for keeping the plant healthy.


How Much Does Planta App Cost?

The basic version of Planta is free. The premium version of the Planta app costs $7.99/month. The app has other, more flexible payment plans, including:

  • 3 months plan: $17.99
  • 1-year plan: $35.99

Is Planta App Available on Android?

Though initially designed and developed for iPhone, the Planta app is now available on Google Play Store for Android devices. It has crossed 100K downloads on the Play store and currently has a rating of 4.3 with around 4000 reviews.

Wrapping Up…

According to the user reviews, the Planta app is a must-have for all plantsmen and ladies out there. In short, all plant enthusiasts need a caretaking assistant for their plants.

What’s more interesting is that Planta, with its premium memberships and pricing packages, is a profitable mobile business. Founded on a simple plant care idea, it has captured a sizeable share in the mobile market, and a good number of iOS and Android smartphone users trust the app for plant care. No doubt Planta, with being the best plant app out there, is also a digital success story for the founder.

And what’s more interesting is that the success of Planta proves the point that by solving a common problem with an innovative solution, entrepreneurs can fuel their business’s growth, ensure high revenue and become the dominant player in their market.

However, entrepreneurs don’t necessarily have to start by launching a fully functional product because it is super-crucial to prove the viability of a product by publishing a startup prototype first or, in other words, an M.V.P.
