To those with a green thumb may not need this help but for the rest of us who a serial plant killers, either by forgetting to water them or over-watering plants, the Waterbug app is a game-changer.  With the app, simply snap a picture of your houseplants and then set a watering schedule for them. To add an extra layer of protection, the app also gives you a recommended watering schedule based on the type of plant. The app also gives you guidance on pruning and pest control too. Once you’ve set up a schedule, the app will remind you to water specific plants when it’s time to do so. After you let the app know you’ve done your job, then the timer will reset for the next watering. The waterbug app costs $2.99 and is only available for Apple products.  However there is a stripped down  and free app called Planty for Apple and Android that has a watering schedule but without the plant-specific knowledge built in.
