Download Blossom - Plant Identification 2.10.0 for iPhone/iPad by Conceptiv Apps LLC directly from Apple Appstore. This app version requires iOS 4+ to be able to install and run.
Interface is nice, and the plant info / watering reminder is nice but that’s about it. Plant identifier is absolute shiite. Keep misdiagnosing plants which is kind of the reason you’re paying $20 a year right. Trashed it and went to a different app that would actually identify and diagnose my plants better. Save your money and get one of the other apps that are way better.
I have multiple water care notifications setup. The notification that pops up every time the user completes a task is extremely annoying. Even after the task is complete the notifications keep showing on iOS and WatchOS. So I’ve had to completely switch them off. Will not be renewing 😡👎
Identified my African violets as begonias and Christmas cactus as Pothos. pretty bad identification.
I probably will not pay for this app a second year. Aesthetically it is quite pleasing, but it lacks several things I consider vital to a good plant app: 1) I use this app largely for care reminders. There is no “snooze” button for reminders so if a plant isn’t quite ready to be watered I have to re-do its schedule to reflect how many more days I think it’ll need before sufficiently dry, or let overdue reminders pile up, which leads me to my second issue.... 2) Far as I can tell, there is no way to “break out” piled up overdue reminders. I can only see one on top of the virtual stack, and if I want to remind myself which other plants I need to be monitoring daily for water I have to clean that too overdue reminder. 3) This is a complaint I have with most pant apps, but it seems pronounced on Blossom - the plant ID function is incredibly limited. Even searching by name doesn’t yield results most of the time - the ID DB doesn’t have a Ficus Audrey, for instance. So it’s quite limited there. If any of the features I’ve mentioned as lacking actually are available on the app I have not been able to find them. Edit: There have been several very positive updates of this app and I’m nearly completely happy with it at this point. The ‘snooze’ function has completely transformed its usability for me, which I really appreciate. It seems like the ID DB has expanded somewhat. It still is not as comprehensive as would be ideal, but I can work with it.
It’s does not ever give me the right name, would not recommend to any one, I’m canceling my subscription today
I actually paid for the membership and was pleasantly surprised that I was able to talk to an actual botanist! I sent in some photos of a plant that wasn’t doing too well, and received a detailed response with what is causing the plant to suffer and how I can fix it. This is such a huge help for beginner plant parents!
The basic free version will only let you identify a few (3-5) via picture, which I was unable to find out exactly how many, that information does not seem to be out there. I tried to add a few of my plants this way and it was unable to identify any plants with the few attempts I had. I want to be able to try it out before I spend money on it. This might be a much better app if you jump right into the paid version, but then why offer a demo version.
I have a bunch of succulents that need help and this app doesn’t have most of them in their library.
I’ve been using this app for several months with no issues. But now I’m having issues with it locking up and couldn’t get it to do anything. So I deleted the app and reloaded it and then it wanted me to sign in again and I forgot my password so I had to reset that and now it tells me I have a new account and all my data from my account is not there. Please let me know how I can fix this. I paid for this subscription.
…after which I deleted the app.
