If you’re like me, you love to surround yourself with live plants indoors and attempt to grow things in your garden every year.

And if you’re like me, you get busy and lose track of proper care and feeding of your precious flora resulting in a lot of brown.

Well, there’s an app for that! Actually it’s an app and a wireless plant monitor whether your plants are inside or outside.

Parrot’s Flower Power system takes precision gardening to a new level because it allows you to easily monitor moisture, temperature, sunlight and fertilizer levels.

Just stick the low-power Bluetooth stake in the ground, load the app on your iPhone and you’re no longer gardening in the dark.

Now whenever you’ve been neglecting your plants, you’ll get a gentle reminder on your iPhone that it’s time to show your plants some love!

Their plant database has over 1000 species so the device will know what the optimum conditions are for the best results.

They even include guidance like when you should plant and interesting facts like basil likes to be around tomatoes.
