Calling all fledgling and veteran plant parents: The horticultural experts at modern garden center Bloomscape just released a new app to guide you on your journey of ensuring that your greenery lives and maintains its best life.

Dubbed Vera by Bloomscape, the app provides users the chance to create profiles for their house plants. Aside from the customary selfie (complete with flattering angles and perfect lighting), the plant profile includes fields to enter the plant’s name, where it’s situated in your home and the date added (think social media for plants, only a lot less drama).

Bloomscape’s Grow-How™ Team is responsible for the library of content, which includes a variety of plant care tips to help you go forth with the confidence and know-how of a seasoned plant parent. If you’re concerned about the possibility of accidentally neglecting your plant’s needs, Vera is equipped to send reminders and other care tips to help you avoid making common mistakes like forgetting to water your plant

You can create a schedule that includes watering and fertilizing reminders, track your plants’ progress by creating a log of care activities like daily misting, repotting, and even when you last hummed a tune to your plant (pro-tip: plants love music), plus learn all about plant care tips that are specific to the species. Also, Vera users will be relieved to know that all of the app’s featured tips have been co-signed by Bloomscape’s in-house expert, Plant Mom.
