Shazam for Plants



Hunter's comment

Ever been out in the nature and wondered about what specific plant it is you are astonished by?


Let me introduce you to PlantNet then:

Actually this app is quite simple. Just download the free to use app and point your camera on the plant and the recognition software will tell you what plant it is Basically works like Shazam only with plants.


Currently the database holds more than 4000 different wild plants and is growing day by day. Another good thing about this app it was created by a collaboration between some major herbariums and botanic research facilities to make it as accurate as possible.


I tried it on some common wild plants here in Vienna and it worked really good. And with research facilities being behind the app you won't get blasted with ads like many free apps do these days.

Sorry 😅, it seems like this hunt didn't meet our Steemhunt's Guideline within this section,


  • Apps that already have many downloads/reviews and similar app had been hunted.

12. Mobile/Web Extention Apps

Like games, there are tons of mobile/web extention applications nowadays, and many of them are too generic to be featured on Steemhunt. If you share the following apps, we may delist your hunting post:

  • Apps that only have web browsing or read-only features.
  • Apps that already have many downloads/reviews (with the exception of apps that have released a completely new version).
  • Copy cat of a renowned app.
  • Apps considered extremely similar to previously hunted apps.

If you think your hunt have a substantial reason to be verified or you’ve updated your post on Steemhunt (by clicking the "edit" button), please comment below or appeal at our Discord channel, here under #mod-joannewong. Thanks 😊


Respect your decision!

Was so exited since I just found about this app a week ago. ;)

I love PlantNet - it doesn't identify every unknown plant but it's successfull enough to be easier to use than all the guide books at home :)


Exactly! It is just easy to use for the occasional plant specification.

Pros / Cons


  • The best part of this app is: anyone can share and contribute the name and details of a plant you are observing.
  • Because this is like a community, you can certainly find a variety of details of the plant.
  • Its use is very easy. You just scanning, and the app will tell you the details (as long as the plant is already registered).


  • None.

My Opinion:

  • This app is perfect for those who love about plant observation.
  • The best of these applications is: anyone can contribute.
