Having a green-thumb isn’t a necessity to be a tech-geek, but for those that whisper sweet nothings to their green leafed friends, the Flower Power app by Parrot is the perfect gardening companion.
Using a wireless accessory shaped like a forked rod, the device is plunged into the soil next to your favorite plant. The app then monitors the plants stats in real-time. The information is pushed via Bluetooth to an iPhone app so you can be aware when your budding baby needs attention. The app catalogues over 6,000 plants by various characteristics, allowing for any green-thumbed environmentalist to be aware of the growing powers of their plant.
Data in the app is updated every fifteen minutes, so users can keep informed on moisture levels, sunlight intake, temperature, and fertilizer metrics. Alerts are easy to follow and the stats are visualized in tidy graphs for overview. The app also includes to-do lists so you never miss a watering date ever again.
