Thirsty Light

Thirsty Light

$9.99 Hello? Dummy? Time to water me! Plants need water - even the most arid-climate-loving plants need it from time to time. As a geek, you might very well have a pot with something brown that was once green in it. Shame on you. All you had to do was give it a drink every now and then, and you failed. Way to go. There are plenty of detectors on the market. They all check the conductivity of the soil. If there is enough water, than the salts in the soil dissolve, allowing a tiny amount of current to run through the electrodes. The lower the resistance, the higher the water content. Trouble is, that's not accurate enough. Our Thirsty Light digital moisture meter uses a patented process to actually interpret the readings it gets, and gives you a far more precise measurement of the dryness of the potting medium. No cryptic readings to gauge - if your plant needs water, the head of the Thirsty Light blinks. It's really that easy. So no more excuses! Get yourself a little living plantlife in your office. Give it enough light and water, and it will thrive. Features * Drypoint Digital Circuit * Long-lasting LED * Corrosion resitant Brass Probe * 2 replaceable 1.5V Lithium batteries * ABS plastic casing * On/Off switch

  • Lacking a green thumb? The Plantsense Easybloom could help you it. Simply stick it into the ground where you'd like to grow something. Leave it in for a few hours, or better yet, days.

Leave it in for a few hours, or better yet, days. While in the ground, it measures humidity, water level, temperature and sunlight. Plug it into your computer with the handy USB Connecter, and the included software will analyze the sensor readings and tell you what type of plant can grow in your soil and how to care for it. It can also 'diagnose' a currently dying plant and tell you what you need to change. It accesses an online database of over five thousand plants so you'll be sure to find something to grow!

  • Internet-Enable your Houseplant There’s a school of thought that says that plants, like higher animals, have thoughts and feelings. They have an inner voice, and can tell you their life-stories, if only you could speak "plant."... Internet-Enable your Houseplant There’s a school of thought that says that plants, like higher animals, have thoughts and feelings. They have an inner voice, and can tell you their life-stories, if only you could speak "plant." It’s not a difficult language to learn, actually - there are only a few words to contend with, since all they seem to care about is how much water they’re getting. There are no masculine or feminine nouns. Plus, there are no verb tenses, because plants have no concept of linear time. The original breakthrough was made just a few months ago when the chief scientist at CERN, attempting to converse with a patch of catnip translated through their Milliard Gargantubrain computer, was able to discern "I CAN HAZ TWITTER?" The scientist didn’t quite understand that gibberish, but his granddaughter did, and the Plant Twitter Kit was born. Once the kit is assembled, connect it to the Internet through the built-in ethernet jack, jam the leads into the plant’s soil, and subscribe to the plant’s twitter feed. It will tell you when it needs watering, or scold you if you’ve overwatered it, and report its status in between. The DIY Plant Twitter Kit comes unassembled, so you’ll have to break out the soldering iron and get to work. Don’t worry, it’s not that difficult to put together, and the satisfaction you get from building your own translation circuit is huge. Details * Do-It-Yourself Kit includes everything you need to understand what your plant is saying * Connects to Twitter over the Internet to report its watering status * Some soldering skill is recommended but not required * You’ll also need a soldering iron, solder, needle-nose pliers, small snips, masking tape and a flat-head screwdriver

This plant is supposedly able to live for 50 years with no water and then spring back to life when it has water again. In a matter of hours it went from the dried up ball of matter to something sort of resembling a plant.... the green color is taking a little longer to come back. Fascinating project for kids or the plant lover around you.
