The Moistly Plant Buddy Keeps Tabs on Hydration as a Prosthetic Green Thumb

You don't have to boast a green thumb in order to keep houseplants, for the Moistly system can act as a sort of translator between you and your potted companions. This compact mechanism has two two jobs: to sense the moisture within the soil around it and to signal when the level is too low.

Tweetonig and CloudSensor collaborated on this clever gadget, enabling those who forget to water their flowers to keep them thriving. The device has a pair of visible parts that include a subterranean tab and a leaf-shaped body. Should the dirt within your planter become too dry, the Moistly will begin to beep repeatedly for your attention, all the while blinking a bright green light to notify you that it's time to pick up your watering can.
