If you have houseplants, you’ve most certainly experienced the tragedy and self blame that comes along when your neglect causes their untimely demise. You don’t have to be a plant killer anymore, the Moistly easy to use plant buddy is here to help you. What is it? It’s a sensor that will beep and blink when you need to water your plants. Unlike other plant gadgets (see related links below), this one doesn’t have to connect to your WiFi and doesn’t have to be setup or charged every other day. It is powered by a CR2032 coin cell battery that lasts for 2yrs. The device is stuck in the soil next to a plant. When the plant needs water, Moistly senses this and starts to bleep and blink by playing a short melody and flashes a green LED light to alert you. It helps keep plants alive-and-kicking by preventing under and over watering. The only thing I worry about is being awakened in the middle of the night by a thirsty plant… If your plants are crying out for help, you can pre-order a Moistly now for $18. The regular price will be $20 each after October 15th.
