A big trend right now is filling your room with plants. A lot of us spent a lot of time inside in the last year or so and to make staying inside easier, we all compulsively bought items that we could fill our house with.
One of the main items that people have been decorating their homes with is plants. Plants are a great decorative tool for a number of reasons. First of all, they are living things, which bring a natural feel to your home. They also come in many different shapes and sizes, which means that you can find a number of options that will perfectly fit into the look of your house.
If you are now a proud plant parent, something that you have likely figured out is that caring for plants is a lot of high-maintenance work. If you have quite a lot of plants, then it is a lot of work to make sure that they are in the best shape that they can be.
It can be overwhelming at times, but thanks to tech it is now easier than ever to care for your plants. Here is some must-have tech that all plant lovers should own.
If you are a plant owner, you will quickly realize that one of the hardest parts about being a plant owner is knowing exactly when you should water your plants. As nice as plants are, they can be very difficult to maintain and they love to kick off if you decide to over or underwater them.
The usual technique of checking whether or not a plant is ready to be watered is by using the finger method, but this is not the most accurate method that you can use to read the moisture levels. A moisture reader will tell you exactly how wet the soil is, which will help you determine whether or not you should water the plant.
Bug Identification App
A big issue that you will face as a plant owner is pests. Plants attract bugs to their soil and it can be incredibly annoying to get rid of them without damaging or causing harm to your plants.
Something that you will be glad to know is that there are apps out there that you can use to identify the pests that have infested your plants. Not only does the app tell you which pests are on the plant, but it will also give you instructions on how to get rid of them. As a plant owner, you have probably asked yourself a million times, how do I get rid of gnats? Now the app will tell you exactly what you need to do to get rid of the pests, without causing any damage to your plant.
Another issue that a lot of plant owners have is remembering when to actually water their plants. Every plant that you will have different watering times and so you cannot just water them whenever you remember.
Thankfully, with automatic waterers, they will be able to sense when the soil is dry and when the plant needs to be watered. This will mean that you don’t have to worry about your plants when you are not around and they will get all of the care that they need.
If you have a house that is not very well lit, then you will benefit from the issue of indoor plant lighting. This can be placed anywhere above where your plant is situated and set to the perfect lighting level. This means that depending on what kind of light your plant needs, you will be able to give it to them, which will allow your plant to thrive.
