I live with someone that loves growing house plants. We have a bazillion of them in our family room. Jeanne likes buying and growing plants, but (and don’t tell her I told you…), she doesn’t have the Greenest of thumbs. At any one time, there will be several plants that look like they are just one petal short of a trip to the trashcan. I’m wondering if the Click & Grow Automated Flower Pot system might help. Add a seed cartridge to the electronic flower pot, plug it into your computer via USB and download the appropriate growth program for the plant you want to grow. The planter will then monitor all the parameters that affect plant growth to make sure your little Green friend receives the best care possible. Of course, you still have to add the water. The Click & Grow systems aren’t available yet, but prices for the planters should be around $30 and $5-$12 for seed cartridges.
