How many hours have you been searching about how to take care of a plant? How many months you needed to discover that plant you loved? How did you find it? Chooseyourplant is a product I wish I had when I started in the houseplant hobbie a few months ago because it would saved me a lot of hours of researching on Google.
After having houseplants as one of my hobbies for a few months, I've decided to build something I found noticed there's a huge market gap. There is no application for discovering plants. It means that every time you want to acquire a new plant, you have to look google for days, look for the trending plants on Pinterest or other websites, and once you find a plant you like, research about how to take care of it.
