What Shazam is for music and media, PlantNet is for plants. If you upload a picture you’ve taken of a plant, PlantNet will recognise it and provide you instantly with more information about it. This app has information about more than 6000 kinds of plants and keeps adding more every day. You can even help by sharing your own pictures and information with PlantNet. Sharing is caring!

2. Plantifier

But what if you can’t find the name of your houseplant or garden plant on PlantNet? Then it’s time to upload your picture to Plantifier. Instead of having its own database of plants for image recognition, Plantifier takes advantage of the knowledge of other plant lovers. In this case, however, you’ll probably have to wait to get your answer.
