Succulent ID App

Identify your Succulent Plants with the Succulent Identification App

Apps are all around us. 

You may have one for traffic reports, that tell you a way around a snarl in commuter traffic, or one that tells you where the nearest bar or restaurant is, based on your location.

Succulent ID App

This little app that I've developed is a way to find out what plant you have.

Do you need to identify a succulent so you can care for it better? 

Here's where you can find out.

It has a search function, so you can find plants that way, or just look for the category that your plant fits into; flowering succulent plants, spikey leaved succulents and so on. 

No need to know the incomprehensible botanical name for it.

If you've ever asked 'what's this succulent?' you'll find this App very handy to identify many succulent plants.

Plant ID at a glance...

Kalanchoe humilis, with key characteristics

For each plant, there will be a picture of it and some key characteristics on each photo - these tell  you if it needs full sun, part sun, is hardy, poisonous, or if it makes a good houseplant.

This, along with the detailed description and tips on how to grow it, will give you what you need to succeed.

Download it to your cell phone or other mobile device and the App can be accessed either at your local garden center, at a box store or in your collection.

No internet access is required to use it.

It stands to reason that this won't be encyclopedic in scale - it will be a way to identify a succulent plant by a simple description, then give you some plants that could be described that way to compare to the one in front of you. 

Marylyn says;

Found the App to be very easy to use. Tabs easy to navigate and the content informative, instructive and with excellent quality images. Thoroughly recommend it.

Each time you ask about a certain plant (or group of plants) we'll add more to it based on those questions.

And, now you can ask me personally to identify your plant!  If you look through the app and don't find the one you have (or something close) use the feedback button to send me your picture and I'll do my best to provide an answer for you. 

Sometimes, I'll even point out what's going wrong with your plant and how to correct it. 

You can give permission for me to use your plants picture on the website for others to gain the knowledge too.

In the app, each profile will give you a picture, to compare to your plant, and a key, to tell you what kinds of conditions that plant will thrive it, whether full sun, indoors, or out in the cold.

Of course, there is no way of listing every single kind.  I've chosen from the ones that people ask me about the most, either by emailing me, asking on one of my question and answer pages, or on the Facebook page. 

Lisa sent me a note via email:

I've found your app. filling, impressive, simple & easy to understand and use. I wish to say thank you. HIGH 5 STARS RATING FROM ME.

If you would like to say something about the app, you can leave a testimonial or a review on the App Store. Or, contact me!

Because there are quite often the same plants asked about time and again, these will of course be in the App.

In the app, you'll also have the chance to access the Succulent Care Handbook, all the succulent care you need to know about your plants.  Get, and keep, them healthy and happy.

Apple, in their wisdom, have decided to deny any updates I do to this app, so I've been forced to retire it - no further updates will be released. You will not be able to download it to your device, and no push notifications will be issued.

So sorry for any inconvenience. 

Don't worry though, I'll still identify your succulent here!
