About FlowerChecker

Our mission is to bring nature closer to people through technology.

We started as a group of three friends, Ph.D. students with botany, and IT background. In 2014, we founded the FlowerChecker company. For five years, we have been working with almost 50 botany and horticulture experts (check the full FlowerChecker app story). We have been not only helping people to identify plants, but we were also gathering training data for our machine learning system for automatic plant identification – Plant.id. Our team grows, and so does the number of successful solutions we delivered.

With Plant.id showcase and FlowerChecker mobile app, we already helped hundreds of thousands of people to identify more than a million plants.

In Plant.id, we make use of this experience and bring smart solutions to businesses and organizations. We work with a wide variety of companies from different fields like smart gardening, nature conservation, or agriculture.

We’d love to help ecologists to do their fieldwork more effectively, facilitate wide-scale monitoring of invasive and endangered species, help to apply herbicide, pesticide or fertilizer more effectively, or make lawnmowers smarter. With all the innovation and creativity in the world, new possibilities are discovered every day.

Flowerchecker app FAQ

It depends, minutes to hours. However, so far we have been able to answer within an hour in more than 50% cases.
Since the identification process requires human involvement, each identification is paid, the cost is ~ 1 USD (using in-app purchase). No charge is applied when we fail to identify your plant.
Some plants are not easy to identify. Try to capture photos of the whole plant and different plant parts such as flower, leaf, or stem. It will help us with the identification and thus shorten our response time!
We do our best to identify your photos correctly, but we are not always 100 % sure. We will always let you know how certain we are. We provide no guarantee for our answers.
All uploaded requests are stored in our database for market analysis. By uploading images, you grant FlowerChecker a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use the images.
