Identify Plants
with an App

About PlantSnap

Have you ever been out and about and wondered what species that beautiful plant, flower or tree is? PlantSnap is a mobile application for iOS, Android, and Windows built to help you identify plants with one snap. Simply take a picture of the plant, and PlantSnap will tell you what it is in seconds.

Powered by deep learning and artificial intelligence, PlantSnap is changing the game for plant identification.

Not only does the app help you better understand the plants that surround you – our data banks can help scientists understand plants globally. PlantSnap can be used as an educational tool in schools and colleges, and commercially in gardening and landscaping businesses. Wouldn't your job be easier if your clients already knew the names of the plants they wanted? We can also help you safely identify the plants you see, before you touch them – so you can always avoid those poison ivy rashes or nettle stings.

When you sign up for PlantSnap, you join a worldwide community of nature lovers. Now you’ll never forget to #smelltheflowers again.

Who we are

The Founder

As the founder of and current CEO of both and, Eric Ralls has long aspired to merge technology with a love for nature and our planet.

Our Story

PlantSnap started as an idea in Eric's head 5 years ago when he was traipsing through a friend's backyard and wondered about the identity of a plant he'd stumbled across. When he asked around and no one knew, he knew he'd stumbled onto a problem that he wanted to solve. Unfortunately, the technology just wasn't quite up to snuff just yet.

Fast forward to today - the tech is available and the team has made PlantSnap a reality. With 310,000 species and 75 million images in our database, we are currently using Deep Learning technology and artificial intelligence to help anyone, anywhere, identify any plant or tree on planet Earth!
