Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need you? Can't I use online forums to get this information for free?
Is WebMD sufficient for when you're sick? Then online forums should suffice :)
In all seriousness, we highly suggest you give forums a try - here is the main challenge:
You're getting advice from people with an unknown level of experience. People looking at your plant won't be asking you the right questions before providing solutions. But it's also free, so...we get it. If forums worked for us we wouldn't have built this app!

Who are your typical clients?
Our clients are across the spectrum from those who just bought plants for their home to plant veterans that need more niche advice.

Will I get the same PlantHero next time?
