Thread: Plant ID app

  1. #1

    Default Plant ID app

    Not sure if i'm posting in the right place, maybe The Fountain would be better?

    I was in Adelaide over the weekend and wandering through the gardens when I came across a really pretty moss. I took a photo in order to post it here so you lot could ID it. Then a friend told me about Plant Snap . It's an app that can identify photos of plants on the spot. I've not tried it with aquatic plants but I wanted to give you guys the heads up because I foresee it becoming a very handy little thing for beginners and even experienced plant growers

    I've just done a little fiddling around on this app. I tried some emersed Echinodorus leaves (of a species, not a cultivar), some crypt flowers and an emersed Pogostemon and it didn't pick up on anything to the correct genus. The closest it got was to linking a crypt flower to Spathiphyllum. I'm thinking it's probably not geared to aquatic/marginal plants.

    I still think it's pretty nifty and I'm keen to try it out with some more commonly seen plants. Does anyone have any success with it being completely accurate?

    I will download to have a play. I think this would be awesome even if it was 80% accurate. I have no idea about terrestrials and it would be nice to know which ones are around when you go for a walk.

    I've admittedly not tried it on any aquatic plants as yet, but I'll give it a whirl next rescape. I also tried out Pl@ntNet which is similar, maybe try that one too?
