An API for plants
This morning I discovered Trefle, an API for plants, through the r/hydro Reddit. What is exciting is that it does seem to cover a number of the variables I'm looking to include in my growing spreadsheet:
- days to harvest
- pH range
- light range
- temperature range
There are also other interesting fields, e.g.:
- average height
Trefle gets its information from a bunch of sources, including USDA, Kew Royal Botanical Gardens, Wikimedia and PlantNet.
While Trefle itself isn't open-source, it should always be free for open-source projects. Another alternative to consider, that is open-source, is OpenFarm.
