Now, click on the camera symbol, and take a picture of a plant, or pick a photo of a plant from your own photo gallery.

Write the plant name and variety. Continue to add information according to your needs.

To save the new plant, click the Tic mark in the top right corner.

On the event tab of the plant you will see events when you start adding them (see step 3).

On the needs tab you see caring instructions you have added.

You can always get back and edit and add the plant information and add more photos by clicking the pen symbol.

To add an area, click on the green button with the plus sign again, and choose ”NEW AREA”.
