Smartphone plant pot watering product hits retailer

Parrot Pot, the latest connected gardening gadget is now available in the UK at RRP £129.99 to manage the care of plants directly from a smartphone from Amazon, Argos, Littlewoods & Very.

Founder Henri Seydoux said: "For several years, Parrot has been working towards a better understanding of plants, and how to use sensors to anticipate their needs. Indeed we too often hesitate being surrounded by plants and fear they will perish, or to acquire a plant we don’t know or one we know is fragile. Parrot
Pot answers these fears. Its sensors and smart irrigating system, together with the database we’ve built with botanists and scientists, enable you to perfectly handle the maintenance of your plants, some being quickly affected by excessive watering, some being very sensitive to the lack of water."
