Toca Lab: Plants is an app designed to introduce primary school-aged kids to plant biology. In the app, kids can apply fertilizer, water, and light to different species of plants.
The correct treatment unlocks new plant characters for the game, and the game teaches the binomial name for each plant character. The plant species in the game range from the baobab tree to the dandelion and unicellular algae. As a grown-up plant biologist, the best feature in the app was making hybrids between the plant characters.
