New glitch from Greg. I watered this plant couple days ago but Greg says 2 weeks ago πŸ™ŠπŸ˜³πŸ˜³πŸ˜³ #GregFeedback @RJG
Ewwwww Greg is effing witchuuuuuu
Does it show that you watered on your timeline?
Greg watering feature is the plant killer
Thanks Vladimir I'll look into this in the morning!
@Annasea

Hey Anna,
I'm sorry to hear you haven't been happy with our watering recommendations. In what ways are they not working for you?
Hey Vladimir,
We checked on our end and we have a snooze a couple days ago but not a water. Is it possible you accidentally snoozed?
@RJG hm… I guess you are right. I remember I watered it in real, but I guess I swiped in the app to the wrong side and snoozed this plant.
@vvvelo I do that sometimes 🫣🫣
@RJG it only works for people who already know how often to water. Many drowned plants. What’s the point?
@Annasea Greg just give you an advice. You don’t have to follow it if you think your plant is not thirsty. I don’t follow watering schedule for every plant in my oasis. I use common sense and observation.
@Annasea Looking through your oasis many of your plants are labeled as much smaller than they appear and without drainage.

In order to provide accurate watering information we need to have accurate data about the plant's characteristics.

If you go to the plant card and hit the β€’β€’β€’ in the top right corner your can select "Edit Details"
@Annasea also if you could let us know which plants drowned, we'll look into what went wrong! We're constantly trying to improve the app and appreciate all feedback!
@Annasea I have to say, I LOVE this app! I've had plants for decades. I know you've had plants a long time, too. It took me a WHILE to get the hang of this app -- but I LOVE it!!

I got this app because I starting misplacing plants - I just couldn't find them when I knew they should be watered.

In 2022, this app is cutting-edge. You input the info and the app will learn how you care for your plant. It takes two or three weeks
@Annasea we have to use the water and snooze options so we reach greg first! And if Greg tells me to water, I ALWAYS check my soil first. If it’s already wet then I snooze it
DANG IT!! I hit the paper airplane. @Annasea any way, Greg takes about two or three weeks of learning how you hit the "water" button and the "snooze" button. All of that information is complied together along with EVERYONE ELSE'S plant information to give you a really good suggestion when you water a plant.

It's not perfect, but it's learning! After using this for almost two years, it's pretty much a perfect watering reminder for me.
@Annasea I think being able to guide new, green folks is something that we can do to help others learn the ins and outs of this app. Ultimately, this app is a labor of love -- about a dozen folks created this app to make caring for plants easy and fun and to bring the joy of plants to others. 😊 You have a lot you can teach new folks about caring for plants- you have some amazing plants in your oasis!
