  2. If you have notifications turned on for Planta but you're not receiving alerts, you might not have Banners selected. Go to iPhone Settings > Notifications, select Planta, then select Banners


  1. Open your phone's settings app.
  2. Tap Apps & notifications. Notifications.
  3. Under “Recently Sent,” tap an app.
  4. Tap a type of notification.
  5. Choose your options: Choose Alerting or Silent. To see a banner for alerting notifications when your phone is unlocked, turn on Pop on screen.

Also check the following in the Planta app settings:

  1. Go to "My Plants" tab
  2. Tap the settings icon in the top right corner (gear icon)
  3. Tap "Notifications"
  4. Make sure all switches are turned on
