PlantSense App

Information System, UI Design


Ever wish plants could tell you what they need? Though talking plants haven't happened yet, PlantSense gets you close through a plant care mobile app.

Since plant care instructions appear on small tags, which are easily misplaced or thrown away, PlantSense provides a platform to track them all in one place. It is a mobile app designed to take the guesswork out of plant care. Users can log their plants in the app and pair them with a sensor which provides real-time updates about plant health. The app provides care instructions and warnings with a playful, approachable twist. 


Illustrated plants appear on the home screen of the app to signify how all of the plants are doing. Any plant with a red icon moves to the top of the list. 


The home screen uses color as a warning system to signify how all of the plants are doing.

The color of the home screen changes to provide a quick visual cue of the owner's plants. It can be either green, yellow, or red to signify overall plant health. Any plant with a red icon will appear at the top of the list.
