3. Xiaomi sensors
Flowering plants require all the attention you can give them, demanding much more care than other plants. Xiaomi comes as a handy tool for gardeners who grow flowers in pots. All you have to do is plug the device into the soil. It is a highly advanced device with an extensive inbuilt database. The waterproof device has a monitor that has to be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth. The screen then displays information on all the essential needs of the flowers, which includes requirements such as water balance, nutrients consumption, soil temperature, etc. all of which contribute towards their growth.
4. Rugiada Plant Sensor
Vegetable gardeners can make the most of this smart sensor. This irrigation device not only senses when your plants need water, it also detects how much water they need and then doesn’t stop at just that. It supplies that water to the plants! This works in three ways- it provides water as a nebulizing spray, in drips or as a rotating sprinkler, taking into account the needs of the plants.
5. Digital Pot
Those of you who are used to grow plants in pots, especially the indoor ones, will know how difficult it can be sometimes to keep them alive. Most often the issue may be with the size of the pot or the lack of knowledge of how much water to put in. But what if your pot did all this thinking by itself and told you what to do? The digital pot does just that. It comes with a USB display to tell you about temperature, water levels, humidity and conditions of the soil in which the plant grows.
With these gadgets added to your collection of garden tools, taking care of your plants will seem more fun and less hard work.
