Parrot Flower Power review: Can technology give you a green thumb?
Flower Power can be useful to help you monitor your plants' overall health, and point out when one of them might need extra attention. However, if you need the device to remind you that you actually have a plant, you'll likely be disappointed.
- Lets you know if your plants need water, fertilizer or sunlight
- Easy to set up and use
- Bluetooth notifications require you to be near your plant to get them
- Alerts don't tell you how much water or fertilizer you need
- On the pricey side
Sure, you've heard of the connected home, but what about the connected garden? If you're someone who manages to always kill your plants, Flower Power, a new gadget from Parrot, might sound like just the thing. The $60 Bluetooth-connected device aims to turn your black thumb green by sending you daily push notifications about your garden's health. The small sensor can provide up-to-the-minute reports that can ensure everything from your potatoes to your petunias are getting exactly the right amount of sunlight, water and even fertilizer. So, is the tiny gadget what your garden needs?
