There’s nothing quite like being around and interacting with nature to relax and help ease the mind. With gardening, simply focusing on the task in hand, be it weeding, pruning or planting, can have an astoundingly positive effect on your mood. Since people have busy lives and don’t always have time to keep track of their plants, this app provides a much-needed support system to help nature their plants by providing a virtual plant on the app imitates the approximate growth of their plant showing how a properly taken care of plant should look, thus providing a measure to work from.

Days with reminders are indicated by having a small dot underneath the day.
