Identifying a plant is of interest to all plant lovers, whether we are talking about houseplants, outdoor plants, or the ones you find on your walk. By knowing what we are looking at, we’ll be able to identify the needs of particular plants and successfully care for them. However, there are so many species to identify and too many apps to choose from. So how do you choose the best plant identification app from so many plant identifiers?

How Did We Choose the Best Plant Identification Apps on this List?

Fortunately, we did our research and created this list of the best plant identification app choices for both Android and IOS devices.

This list contains three of the best free plant identification apps, three of the best plant identification apps coming with a price, and a few more we consider worthy of this list. After all, you can never have too many tools and accessories to help you care for your beloved houseplants or indoor garden!

At the end of this guide, you will also find a couple of best gardening app examples we think might interest you! At least one of them acts as a plant identifier, but all three we picked will help you plan your gardening activities better and offer your plants the maintenance they need.

Now, speaking of plant identification apps, since the first three apps are free for use, I decided to put them to the test. The results were not disappointing!

So, let’s get started!

I want to download a plant or tree ID app on my desktop, but none will allow that! I have Mac OS 11.4
cell phone window too difficult to use.

I find iNaturalist all but worthless. It fails to identify Western Red Cedar, Blackberry, Big Leaf Maple, Blue Spruce, Douglas Fir, Thistle and many other common plants and trees, and it thinks a pile of logs is a beaver.
