Have you ever had one of those weeks where you felt like a supernatural force was dropping subtle hints into your life? Well if you've been reading Unplggd, you know that I (Taryn, the "we" doesn't really work here) have been making an effort to grow a green thumb to be able to enjoy plants and flowers inside my apartment. It started with the suggestion of my roommate to bring some Ikea bamboo to our living room, then I kept getting hints from the blogosphere about ways to keep more ambitious plants alive with the creepy PlantBot and the Plant Twitter DIY Kit. But, you guessed it, there's one more: The EasyBloom plant sensor makes gardening easy by picking out the plant species that will thrive in your space.
EasyBloom corrects one of the biggest gardening mistakes: Picking out the wrong plants for your available sunlight, temperature and geographical region. All you need to do is place it where you want to put your plants for 24 hours and it'll collect the essential data like light, temperature, humidity and soil moisture. After the 24 hours have passed, you can plug EasyBloom into a USB port and it will sort through over 5,000 plant species before coming up with suitable recommendations of flowers that will thrive in your environment. EasyBloom is pretty affordable for $60, not to mention the money you'll save by not killing beautiful-but-expensive plants.
