Plants Data API

Plants Data API

The Plants Data API provides an extensive database of plant information.

API description

About the API:

The Plants Data API is a comprehensive database of plant information that offers a wealth of data for developers and researchers to integrate into their projects or studies. One of the primary features of this API is its ability to search for plant information by either common or scientific name. Each plant entry in the API is listed with a variety of properties, including genus, species, family, growth habit, duration, and growth rate, providing a comprehensive understanding of each plant.

In addition to these general plant properties, the Plants Data API also provides a wealth of detailed information for each entry. Some of the most important properties included in the API for each plant entry are mature height, foliage texture, flower color, fruit color, toxicity, drought tolerance, shade tolerance, temperature minimum, and lumber product availability. This information can be used to help identify plants and to inform decisions about their suitability for specific environments or purposes.

With its easy-to-use interface, the Plants Data API is an excellent resource for anyone interested in learning more about the world of plants. Whether you're a researcher studying plant biology, a developer building a gardening app, or simply a nature enthusiast looking to learn more about the flora around you, this API offers a rich and diverse collection of information to explore.

Zyla API Hub is, in other words, an API MarketPlace. An all-in-one solution for your developing needs. You will be accessing our extended list of APIs with only your user. Also, you won't need to worry about storing API keys, only one API key for all our products is needed.

Prices are listed in USD. We accept all major debit and credit cards. Our payment system uses the latest security technology and is powered by Stripe, one of the worldโ€™s most reliable payment companies. If you have any trouble with paying by card, just contact us at [email protected]

Sometimes depending on the bank's fraud protection settings, a bank will decline the validation charge we make when we attempt to be sure a card is valid. We recommend first contacting your bank to see if they are blocking our charges. If more help is needed, please contact [email protected] and our team will investigate further

Prices are based on a recurring monthly subscription depending on the plan selected โ€” plus overage fees applied when a developer exceeds a planโ€™s quota limits. In this example, you'll see the base plan amount as well as a quota limit of API requests. Be sure to notice the overage fee because you will be charged for each additional request.

Zyla API Hub works on a recurring monthly subscription system. Your billing cycle will start the day you purchase one of the paid plans, and it will renew the same day of the next month. So be aware to cancel your subscription beforehand if you want to avoid future charges.

Just go to the pricing page of that API and select the plan that you want to upgrade to. You will only be charged the full amount of that plan, but you will be enjoying the features that the plan offers right away.

Yes, absolutely. If you want to cancel your plan, simply go to your account and cancel on the Billing page. Upgrades, downgrades, and cancellations are immediate.

You can contact us through our chat channel to receive immediate assistance. We are always online from 9 am to 6 pm (GMT+1). If you reach us after that time, we will be in contact when we are back. Also you can contact us via email to [email protected]
