Technology to Turn Your Black Thumb Green

Technology to Turn Your Black Thumb Green

Gardening used to require something anthropologists called a green thumb: a mystical power that helped keep plants alive even in the most ridiculous of environments. But technology is saving the day for those of us who enjoy plants, but have a serial killer's knack for decay. The Parrot Flower Power is capable of monitoring sunlight, soil moisture, soil fertility and temperature and relaying all of that information to your iPhone via Bluetooth. It can even tell you if you're over watering or under watering and whether your planet needs different soil conditions. If you haven't planted anything yet, it can tell you which plants are perfect for your conditions from its 6,000 plant online library. If you have plants that aren't plastic, you need this. parrot.com
