It takes a lot of work to keep my crazy plant lady status on point, and by no means are my babies immune to the occasional root rot, brown tips, or yellow leaves. Which is why I’ve come to heavily rely on the free gardening app Planta, whose tagline “never kill a plant again” is total #lifegoals. The free app lets you input your specific plants, organized by room, along with the amount of shade/sunlight each one gets, then sets up a watering calendar that sends task notifications, as well as specific care tips. It’s a plantophile’s dream.
