Identify Plants
with an App

About PlantSnap

PlantSnap is a mobile app that helps you identify plants, flowers and trees. Simply snap a photo of the plant, and PlantSnap tells you what it is!

PlantSnap can currently recognize 71,000 species of plants and trees, which covers most of the species you will encounter in North America and Europe. If you live outside of those areas, PlantSnap will still recognize many plants or trees that you encounter, and ALL of them very soon.

Who we are

The Founder

As the founder of and current CEO of, 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 over 4 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...PlantSnap currently 316,000 species in our database, 71,000 species trained into our artificial intelligence algorithm, and 55 million images in our database. We are training 50,000 new species per month, and will have every species on Earth covered by the end of 2017!
