Reasons to Invest

$3.6 million in revenue in 2018 -- 1200% growth from 2017
#5 paid app in the entire Apple iTunes App Store in 2018; 30 million total installs as of September 15, 2019
Partnered with the American Public Garden Association (APGA) and Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) to distribute PlantSnap to all of the visitors to their 1200+ botanic gardens around the world, which get a combined 700 million visitors per year

PlantSnap reconnects people with the world around them

It's important for us to understand that we are a part of nature, not apart from it, and that it's our responsibility to protect our world for future generations. So, we created a tool that encourages people to stop and explore the beauty and wonder of the world they live in. We hope to find like-minded individuals to join us on this journey to complete our growing global plant database in a timely manner, and further our goals of stirring up excitement about getting re-acquainted with the great outdoors. By bringing people back to nature and helping them feel like they are an integral part of this amazing planet, together we can help them understand that we are stewards of the Earth, not owners.

Traditional methods for identifying plants are inconvenient and difficult

Plant identification books are often narrow in scope, expensive, and cumbersome. They are not meant to be kept in your pocket for quick access when you're out in nature. In 2012, CEO and Founder Eric Ralls was at a friend's BBQ when he noticed a large plant with beautiful flowers in the backyard. No one at the party knew what kind of plant it was. He tried describing it in a google search but turned up no helpful results. He sifted through websites with the region's plants, but no luck. He looked for a plant identification app, but none existed. That's when the idea for PlantSnap was born. 

PlantSnap uses AI to identify plants with just a picture

PlantSnap not only reconnects people to nature but also creates a database of plants that provides useful information to hobbyists and professionals alike. PlantSnap is translated into 37 languages and currently used in over 200 countries every day. With over 620,000 plants now in our database and 32 million installs so far, PlantSnap has become THE go-to app for gardeners, hikers, landscape designers, teachers, students, foragers, and anyone who enjoys nature. At PlantSnap, we’re reigniting interest in the beauty and wonder of nature that surrounds us every day, while empowering scientists and nature enthusiasts with the technology to catalog and share their discoveries.

10X Year-over-Year revenue growth and 32M downloads are just the beginning

With two successful StartEngine crowdfunding campaigns under our belt and increased accessibility now that our app is available in 37 languages and used in over 200 countries, our user-generated database has grown considerably with an average of 500,000+ user photos a day and reached some impressive milestones.

To say we finished 2018 strong is an understatement:

  • #5 paid app in the entire Apple iTunes app store with 30 Million total installs
  • $3.6 Million in revenue (a 10X+ revenue increase from 2017)
  • Partnered with American Public Garden Association (APGA) and Botanic Garden Conservation International (BGCI) to distribute PlantSnap to people who visit their 1200+ botanic gardens around the world, which receive a combined 700 million+ visitors per year
  • 620,000 different plants and over 250 million images stored in our database
  • Built and launched 2 new PlantSnap apps (MushroomSnap completed and waiting to be released, PlantCatch 75% complete and InsectSnap in production)

Secured some incredible partnerships

On top of our existing botanical partnerships, we have also completed our first major sponsorship campaign with Mrs. Meyers Cleaning Products for Earth Month in April of this year. Using PlantSnap, people could snap a photo of a plant and discover whether it was endangered or not in real time. If it was, we asked them to take a picture instead of picking the flower. With each purchase of affiliated products, they would plant the endangered purple coneflower in its preservation garden. To date, they've distributed and planted more than 270,000 purple coneflowers. The campaign was so successful that the agency created this case study and video, which was selected as an entrant in the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

We have a large international market for our product and data

The plant and garden market is a $340B per year global industry. For a detailed analysis of the industry, this study highlights plant/garden sales in the US market. Here you can find gardening market reports for dozens of other countries. For comparison, global music sales are roughly $20B per year. There is also a $10B advertising and marketing industry to coincide with our targeted, precise customer base. We are the world's largest geolocated plant database with detailed geolocated customer information that is of increasing value to the market to power sophisticated location-based ad targeting. Through Facebook analytics, we've identified 1.8B potential global users.

How it Works

  • Take a Photo - Snap a pic of any plant, flower, tree, cacti, succulent or mushroom and receive results in about 5 seconds. In the wilderness with no internet? No problem! Just save the photo to your phone and analyze with PlantSnap once you have a data connection.
  • Learn and Discover - Upload, and instantly identify your plant. Learn facts such as where else you can find the plant, its growth habit, its edibility and more.
  • Keep Track of It All - Compile your discoveries in one place—never forget where you found a plant or what it's called. Be prepared to find all the plants in your area!
  • Be a part of our Global Citizen Science initiative -- Simply by snapping photos of plants wherever you go, you will play an integral role in this massive, global initiative to map, catalog and evaluate every known plant species on Earth. This data will then be used by scientific organizations and universities around the world to conserve and save plant species, thereby protecting our environment and the global ecosystem.

We're creating and sharing a valuable database of plants on earth

We have a patent-pending training process for a machine learning algorithm used to identify plants with just a photo. When someone performs a simple scan of their surroundings with a phone camera, our new auto-detect technology identifies leaves and flowers in the area. Our algorithm is roughly 94% accurate for the 620,000+ plants and 250M+ images trained into the algorithm. It also gathers anonymous data from users that can be used for education, gaming, safety, gardening, landscaping and much more.

We have both subscription and Ad-Based revenue streams

PlantSnap Pro - Paid App sold for $19.99

Subscriptions - Premium Memberships - monthly, annually subscriptions give PlantSnap a recurring revenue stream

Ad Revenue - Our indirect revenue stream comes from ads in the free version of the app. 

  • In-app ad campaigns with ad networks, including Google and Facebook, placed through AdMob, average eCPM of $3.95.
  • Launched our own ad serving platform for direct advertising campaigns, significant increase in eCPM

Retail and Ecommerce - Largest unmonetized revenue channel

  • “GET” button within the App has been developed and implemented but not monetized
  • "GET" button driving over 200,000 customers linking to outside ecommerce partners/month

PlantSnap was displayed on the Apple stage when they were giving details on the new iPhone 11 Pro.

Our App provides instantaneous results and no guesswork

Most plant identifying apps can identify no more than 5000 species, at most. They also use crowdsourcing to generate data, which takes time, days or more, and can be a major source of frustration for those looking for quick answers. We’ve managed to create a system, using auto-detect and augmented reality, that allows you to upload a photo and instantly get detailed information of the snapped plant with no guesswork or human interaction involved. PlantSnap has over 620,000 plants in our searchable database which provides instant results and it is translated into 37 languages. This means that PlantSnap will work in any country on Earth, for 95% of the global population.

PlantSnap is the digital interface to bring people and nature together

We believe technology is the answer. With PlantSnap, we hope to bring people back to nature by putting an application on their phones that will allow them to instantly identify any plant, flower or tree simply by snapping a photo. We want to take this a step further by helping people to reconnect with not only nature but also each other. We are launching PlantSnap 3.0 in late September which will incorporate a social component called PlantSnappers. This will allow people to "Friend" other PlantSnappers around the world, share photos, share gardening tips, etc. 

To further this mission, we have a lineup of other developments for PlantSnap in the works:

  • PlantSnap Social - PlantSnappers launched as part of PlantSnap 3.0 in September 2019
  • MushroomSnap - development complete, ready for launch
  • PlantCatch - gamified version of PlantSnap similar to PokemonGo, Spring 2020 Launch
  • InsectSnap - early stage development, patents, trademarks and copyrights in place

Calling all Plantsnappers! A way to connect and share your findings

The goal of PlantSnappers is to connect you to other plant lovers and plant professionals. Our intention is not to replace other social media platforms but offer one that is only for plants. We hope that PlantSnappers will give you an outlet in which to share your enthusiasm for plants and your love of nature and our environment with like-minded people all over the world!

  • Share your favorite findings and discoveries with friends. You can share plant photos straight from your camera roll and PlantSnap will automatically identify the plant for you when it posts
  • Comment and interact with your favorite posts made by your friends
  • Share tips and ask advice on gardening and plant care
  • Connect with a global community of plant lovers all over the world who use PlantSnap in over 200 countries

With this database, PlantSnap helps users determine what plants they're looking at, and answer the questions they may have, such as:

  • Is it poisonous or medicinal? 
  • Is it beneficial or intrusive?
  • Can this grow in my region? 
  • How do I care for this plant?

Blending a love for technology and a love for nature

As the founder of RedOrbit and current CEO of both and PlantSnap, Eric Ralls has long aspired to merge technology with a love for nature and our planet. Eric is a serial entrepreneur. After graduating from Vanderbilt University with degrees in psychology and Japanese, Eric then attended Thunderbird School for International Management. Seeing the business potential of the internet, Eric then jumped into technology in the early days of the internet boom in 1998, merging the latest innovations with his love for the planet.

Join us in reconnecting with nature and preserving our home

Investing in PlantSnap is investing in the future of our planet. Reconnecting people to nature is key to them understanding the beauty, wonder, and fragility of our world. Our first major sponsorship campaign with Mrs. Meyers cleaning products for Earth Month was so successful that the ad agency Ogilvy did a case study for it and created a video which was chosen for the Cannes International Festival for Creativity - and this is just the beginning. Together, we can build a bridge to nature that everyone from the everyday nature lover to the lifelong career scientist can use to protect our home.

"Retention is the new acquisition"

about 1 month ago

Happy Holidays from PlantSnap!

In this update:

- "Retention is the new acquisition"

- Another PlantSnap a

- PlantSnap social feed usage triples

- Over halfway to fundraising goal

- "Gift of Ownership" Offer Expiring

"Retention is the new acquisition"

The phrase "retention is the new acquisition" is a new but familiar refrain when it comes to making money with software, but what exactly does that mean?

For software companies like ours, it simply means that just because someone downloaded our software, that doesn't mean they are using it!  

The proliferation of "free apps" -- or more appropriately "apps supported by advertising" -- has conditioned many app store customers to hastily download software before considering if they will use it. The availability of such a low commitment option to the consumer means that app store customers are easily convinced to download an app but not necessarily the right customer for the product.    

But PlantSnap's retention rates are among the highest in the entire app industry for both Apple and Android and boasts over 33 Million downloads.

How do we do this?

PlantSnap CEO Eric Ralls sits down with Peggy Anne Salz for the "Mobile Presence" podcast to discuss how we keep our retention rates sky-high month in and month out: 

PlantSnap a "Top 5 Gardening App"

More awards, this time from Europe!

Even though 2020 will mark our 3rd year helping folks identify plants, we are still amazed at the amount of fresh and positive press coverage PlantSnap receives internationally throughout the four seasons.  

Our most recent accolades come from "Mighty Gadget" in the United Kingdom where PlantSnap was named a "Top 5 Gardening App": 

It is also fun to note that although it isn't a prime gardening season in the UK, PlantSnap is still top-of-mind worldwide as folks prepare for 2020.  

2020 is going to be PlantSnap's biggest year yet and we are excited to have you with us!

PlantSnap social feed growing

PlantSnap introduced an in-app social feed for users this fall, and user activity TRIPLED over the last 30 days in the feed!  Our PlantSnappers absolutely love being able to share plant photos and see what other users are finding all over the world.

Be sure and check out the family-friendly PlantSnappers feed in the lower-left corner of PlantSnap for both Android and Apple on the app!

Plant a tree for free

3 months ago

StartEngine campaign

What a first week! 

PlantSnap and StartEngine welcomed 250 investors to the campaign and we have now raised over $180,000.  Thank you!

Help PlantSnap plants trees for free

PlantSnap and have partnered to plant more trees on behalf of folks who share a photo on social media.  

Yes, it's that simple!  

Over 7500 PlantSnap and tree lovers have already participated!

Get started here:

Why are we helping to plant more trees? 

The answer here from

Problem: we lose trees at a rate of 50 soccer fields per minute as our food systems destroy our ecosystems. Most of this degradation occurs in the developing tropics of Africa, Latin America, and South and Southeast Asia where hundreds of millions of chronically-hungry, smallholder farming families use destructive and short-sighted agricultural practices that further degrade their communities trees, soil, water and biodiversity, making them even more likely to migrate and more vulnerable to the climate changes that lie ahead.

Solution: The Forest Garden Program is a simple, replicable and scalable approach with proven success. By planting specific types of fast-growing trees, fruit trees, hardwoods and food crops in a systematic manner over a four year period, families can positively change their lives forever. Forest Gardens consist of thousands of trees that provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and a 400% increase in their annual income in four years.

The challenge we face is how to train hundreds of millions of farmers to plant Forest Gardens. Most smallholder farmers world-wide are low-literate, highly dispersed, chronically hungry, and living in extreme poverty. They own, on average, less than five acres, and are dependent upon tree products from local forests for their survival.

The big, hairy, audacious goal: we see converting degraded and denuded farmland into Forest Gardens one of the planet’s best ideas for eliminating hunger, extreme poverty, deforestation and for lessening humanity’s contributions to climate change. TREES’ Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal (BHAG) is to break the cycle of poverty and eradicate hunger for our first 1 million people by planting 500 million trees in 125,000 Forest Gardens by 2025. This will entail working with approximately 125,000 families to revitalize a quarter of a million acres, coupled with interventions at different levels of the value chain (related to inputs, credit, water and marketing) to ensure the long term sustainability and continual spread of Forest Gardens.

If we can grow a movement by convincing massive numbers of farmers across any given landscape to plant Forest Gardens, we can, first and foremost, eliminate chronic hunger and extreme poverty on that landscape, but even more, at scale we will have a program that can reverse deforestation and meaningfully begin to mitigate climate change.
