But let's face it—most of us barely have time to water the houseplants regularly, much less manage a garden. Luckily, with these internet-enabled plant sensing systems, you'll be able to watch your garden grow from the couch. Kuobachi Wi-Fi Plant SensorFor some of us, caring for a single potted plant is quite enough responsibility, thank you—and even then, keeping up with its routine maintenance is a challenge. But rather than letting yet another ficus slowly wither to nothingness, stick a Kuobachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor in there and receive watering reminders.The Kuobachi, as we've explained before, takes all of the heavy lifting out of caring for houseplants. These all-in-one sensors measure light, soil humidity, and soil temperature, and upload the data to the Koubachi Web platform. By specifying which species of plant the unit is observing, the Kuobachi site will send you specifically-tailored watering, feeding, and general care instructions by email or SMS. The Koubachi plant sensor retails for $97 on the Koubachi website.
