No Green Thumbs? No Problem! This Device Takes Care Of Things For You

Taking care of plants is one of those things that you’re either good at, or just simply terrible at. This particular editor happens to kill any photosynthesizing organism he comes across, so the Koubachi WiFi Plant Sensor could definitely come in handy. It features a special device that you plant in the soil near the plants it’s supposed to be monitoring. It’ll evaluate the soil moisture, the temperature and the amount of sunlight that area is getting and make sure it’s up to the required standards that the particular plant it’s assigned to needs. It communicates via WiFi to a free application on your iPhone, so you can know from a distance if things are peachy or not.

Of course, you need to actually check that application now and then, or even heed the notifications it’s sure to send. But hey, if you get to the point where even technology can’t help you gardening, perhaps you should look into some other hobby.

It’s $142.
