App works great for me. Been using for almost 2yrs now. I used to have premium (& learned a lot from it!) but now I only use it to keep track of my own watering schedule that I make up (I don't need all the other options at this point), cause the app isn't 100% accurate. I don't understand how "grow light" is a premium feature when it's kind of important to know for the FREE watering schedule. Cause it does affect watering 100%. It's a good app to keep track of your own schedule for sure.

Thank you for sharing your experience! It's great to hear that the app has been helpful to you for almost 2 years and that you found the premium features useful in the past.I completely understand your point about the "grow light" and how it affects watering. We appreciate your input and will certainly take your comments into consideration/ Emma

I want to love this app, but it's incredibly frustrating when maybe 2 or 3 out of the 10 times I want to use, will it actually load. I've seen a few other reviews with the same issue but no resolution. Pro: Does the app actively tell me when I need to water my plants? Absolutely! I love that about it. Con: Good luck figuring out which plants need watering when the app won't open.

Happy so far! A suggestion I think would be helpful would be to allow filtering of your list of plants. It'd be nice to see only certain genuses or families. Also it'd be nice to list them alphabetically rather than randomly & to have the ability to search for a plant you have. Update: It stinks that you removed the choice to add a grow light from the free to the premium version only. Now I have to look for another app that will give me accurate watering suggestions.
