In today’s post, we will test and review the best plant identification app by testing it on some of my garden plants from easy level to difficult level and then finally calculate it’s accuracy in identifying plants. At the end of this episode, there is a giveaway of 10 VIP or pro subscriptions of this App.
We must know the importance of identifying a plant and its family. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, this information is crucial for proper care and management of a plant.

The Advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) and deep learning
technology of PictureThis App can quickly scan the plant and recognize the
plant almost instantly within seconds. This is so important specially, if you
