PLANTS TELL YOU WHAT THEY WANT

PLANTS TELL YOU WHAT THEY WANT | Balcony Gardening | Scoop.it
Growing plants would be a lot easier if plants could express what it is they need from you. Fret not because that’s what the Pet Plant by Junyi Heo does. The very sleek looking pot measures soil conditions, temperature, humidity, and water – calculates those variables based on the need of said plant, and expresses its condition via a series of pictograms on an LCD display. It’s also smart enough to know if you’ve over watered and will systematically drain itself into a water vessel. All this high tech goodness does mean it needs power but a simple USB interface does double duty by charging and transmitting pertinent information to and from computer software.
Kimberley Hopkins's insight:
Perfect for those who aren't too good at keeping things alive. Trick people into thinking you are a responsible plant owner who doesn't murder the contents of every pot in your home.
