Bud is a visual diary of your plants life. Growers have kept journals for years to track their plants health and development. The information derived from monitoring a plants life cycle has helped increase yield and potency over time. Up until now most growers have used a variety of tools to track this information, excel sheets, word documents, photo galleries, and good old pen and paper. Bud aims to put this all in one place and give growers an organized way to track grows.

Growing is often a solitary activity and for those who want to keep it this way bud allows users to keep all their journals private. But for those who like to share, get feedback, discuss strains, talk techniques, and ask advice, bud offers a way for users to easily share their journals with the community. Public journals can be seen by all, and users can follow individual grows or other users to keep up to date with their latest updates. Privacy is important to growers so all images are stripped of meta data before being stored and shared.

Bud’s aim is to provide a product people like to use, so feedback is encouraged, happy growing.

Useful but needs work

I enjoy using the app to keep track of my grow and others that are just starting out.i find it very useful but it needs some work. The app is very laggy and slow at times and has connection errors a lot where the only way to fix it is to delete and reinstall the app which is annoying but fixable with updates. I'd like to see in a future update the ability to view a persons grow by tapping their name in the comments (making their name a link to their grows)and also to post more then one photo at a time.

Such a great app

Very clean and intentional design. It is a little laggy, but app development is hard and this app is free so whatever. It is definitely the best of its kind. I personally don’t use it for ‘grows’, just my regular boring plants, but I have showed it to a few friends who grow and they are obsessed. The social aspect of seeing other people’s grows is super nifty. Hats off to the creators and developers. 10 outta 10 would recommend.

Good visual log

I had to completely rewrite my review because I have learned to use this thing.

I'll keep this short. This is by far the best app I have used for a visual diary of my grows.

Create updates at significant times in your grow. Example post one when seeds pop. From there weekly updates are entered along with a photo. So let's say it's transplant day and I want to document that. You can do so with this app. Create an update describe the event and snap a photo. That easy.

I have created journals for my currently budding plants and my doner or mother plants.

Once again great visual diary to see progress and help remember important event dates like when you switched to 12/12 or when did I take those cuttings?
