    Flower Power; data from your plant

    • Written by from Winnipeg

    For those with money, this product is wonderful. It took seconds to install, came with everything one needed to get started and began working with no delays. The database and trackers (both online and locally as an iPhone app) to which the device sent its data, were clever, accurate and provided a wealth of useful information for managing a single plant's care. Useful for plants that might be tricky to manage well. We used it on a plant that we were having trouble keeping alive. With the information provided, we nursed the plant back to health and it is now thriving. Parrot took their entry into the 'Internet of Things' very seriously: Flower Power provided data on plant placement, watering, fertilizing and temperature and allowed for easy maintenance, especially for people who don't have a green thumb!

    Great tool!

    We have two sensors and have been using them both indoors and out. They have been very helpful in determining optimal plant location. Even more important for us is the sensor's ability to tell us if we've over or under fertilized a plant. We have a lily that has struggled for three years. Since being monitored by a flower power sensor it now has two stalks and numerous flower buds.

    Had a tree in my yard that was yellowing and looking thin. With the help of Flower Power I was able to develop a watering and fertilizer schedule that brought it back to life. Great product!

    Power to your Flowers

    • Written by from AUBURN

    Hats off to the people at Parrot for their great job on the Parrot Flower Power. It's one thing to grow a plant in the ground, and another if you're doing it in a Pot. And I will say this unit will do honor to both instances very well. I gave it a few weeks before making a comment on Parrot Flower Power. It is very accurate in its observation of your prized plants.
    One might note that when fertilizing your potted plants. Use a granular surface fertilizer for greater results. Liquid fertilizer tends to wash away to quickly. But that is up to how often you water.
    A+ to those who worked hard to bring us a great product. And to Apple for its outstanding service getting it to me;-}.

    Many thanks.

    Interesting product

    • Written by from Bradford

    Had for a month now, like the concept. Would be better if it was wifi and it would be nice if it came with multiple sensors as I have many gardens. Overall it's an overpriced toy but I still like it.

    Not yet ready for prime time

    • Written by from Columbia

    Ended up returning the item for a number of reasons. When setting up and installing the interface software using Google Chrome for the browser, I received a "Warning may contain malware" message. After a week in the ground fertilization data wasn't being displayed, but it did well measuring soil temperature and moisture as well as light levels. When needed Parrot Technical Support was hard to reach by phone and email. When I finally reached someone they indicated it was a new product for them, that they were still being trained on it and were not able to be much help. While the concept is interesting, the product nicely designed and packaged, it's currently overpriced for what it does and just not an item which is ready to go public.
