For a lot of people looking after plants could be an enormous task to think off, however a new crowdfunding project has launched today that aims to help people with that, and that is a new smart plant pot called Planty.
Developed by a company called nthing, Planty allows you to automate the process of looking after your house plants.
To do this Planty is connected to the internet and allow users to monitor their plants via the smartphone companion application, and provide them with notifications and updates about the plant.
Some of those updates will include when to water the plant (which can be started from the app, even away from home).
“Plants are no different from humans. They breathe, they drink and they require nutrition. However, they can’t communicate and tell us what they need, so many dry to a silent death.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could here what your plants are so desperately trying to tell you? Meet PLANTY, the Internet-connected SMART POT that gives your plants the unprecedented ability to communicate their needs to you. Planty connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi and monitors your plants’ soil, temperature, light and water levels. All this data is delivered directly you to via the Planty app on your smartphone so you can react appropriately.
For example, if your plant’s ambient temperature is too high or too low, Planty will send you an app notification so you can adjust the room temperature or move it to a more appropriate location. Or if your plant is dry and needs water, you can water it DIRECTLY from your mobile app! Just press a button, and Planty will take care of the rest.
Over time, Planty’s algorithms enable it to learn more about the perfect conditions for your plant and provides you even better suggestions on how to help it thrive.”
