Grow With Me

Morgan Blatz

Caring for plants brings many emotional, physical, and mental benefits. Often people are reluctant to try growing plants because they don't know where to start or don't feel confident enough in their abilities. Grow With Me aims to bring plant lovers together, whether they just started growing their first plant or are a hardened veteran. The app allows users to create plant profiles, write in their plant's journal, add photos, and set schedules and reminders for a variety of plant care activities. Users can also interact with each other in the community section, where they can ask questions or just chat about their plants. The app features calming visual elements and a color palette featuring natural colors and tones, bringing nature straight to users' phones.
