Ever tried gardening or simply making an effort to keep just one plant alive, only for it to die no matter how hard you tried to take care of it? That might mean that you have a black thumb. 

Black thumbs do not have to be forever, we believe, and all you need to turn it into a green thumb is some help in gardening and taking care of plants. If help in keeping plants alive is what you're looking for, here are some gardening apps that are available for download for iOS and Android!

Before you even start thinking that you can't keep a plant alive, here's a thought: if the astronauts at the International Space Station can harvest Zinnia flowers, it is more than possible that you can keep a plant or two alive here on Earth.
