First things first. I saw that most of people have some difficulties when plant caring, also this is a personal struggle. But, to confirm the hipotesis that people like to have plants but have some struggles with it, I run some discovery proccesses such as online forms, personas, empathy maps, user flows etc. You can check it below. :)
With the empathy map, I mapped some possibilities about pains and user behaviours on the plant caring. This gave me some hipotesis and doubts that I have to validate with people.
For the form, I choose the online form, so I could have a wider range, I posted the link on slack groups to collect the answers. I got over 140 answers and with the data I started to see a pattern on the difficulties and the alternatives people use to resolve it. Also it helped me to validate and invalidate some of my hipotesis.
This first part is in portuguese, since I started this project on my post-graduation course, and also I distribuited the form on brazilian groups
