Featured Reviews Plant Light Meter

This meter only works on green leaves and images taken at certain angles. It isn’t a reliable source to tell if your plants are getting enough light. And it definitely isn’t for artificial light. Overall an okay meter.

I love being able to monitor my plants’needs by repositioning them for their best light needs!

Upgraded from an iPhone 7plus and I can’t allow this app access to my camera. The app doesn’t even show in Apple settings. Please fix this issue bc the app works great...or at least it used to

Plants need light


I am very glad for this app I love how easier it is to know The right lighting thank you



In direct sunlight it goes back and forth between medium and high. DIRECT. SUNLIGHT. It’s very easy to use but I don’t feel it’s very accurate
