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.

The difference was the Year after year I have struggled keeping our family's landscape looking good and failed until this season. The difference was the Flower Power. This little device made growing plants a breeze for even me by letting me know the perfect time to water and fertilise my plants. You never realise how much water plants really need and with this product you don't need to since it will let you know. My only problem was convincing my dog that it was not a stick to play fetch with.

I have never had a "green thumb" and never did well with plants but since I have been using the flower power for my peace lily plant, my plant has been thriving. It sends me reminders and alerts that lets me know if my plants needs... Water, sunlight, fertilization, and or provides temperature reading so you know if your plants is being expose to harsh temperature. It also give me a timeline reading of my plants progress including a live view of instant information on my plant's health. I love the fact that I can have multiple flower power for different plants and use one app to manage all. My plant is in good health and I couldn't be happier with the Parrot Flower Power!!

From monitoring the moisture of the soil to fertilizer content, the product worked great. The only reason i'd give it four stars is because when connected over bluetooth, you don't get a whole lot of range. I couldn't put the product in my garden and monitor it from my house which is only 50 to 75ft away.

    Hi Anna,
    I recommend you create a new plant in your garden for your plumeria.
    All data regarding y Hi Anna,
    I recommend you create a new plant in your garden for your plumeria.
    All data regarding your hibiscus before you start monitoring your plumeria remains stored, it's just that you will no longer get reminder in your agenda regarding your hibiscus.
    If you've been following the advices of Flower Power regarding your hibiscus for at least one month, you should be used to what needs to be done and can therefore keep on taking care of it this way. You can progress same way for another plan that you would like to add to your garden :o)
    Other option, I checked quickly in the PlandDB in the Flower Power app and I found out that these 2 types of plants required a similar amount of water/ sun/ temperature (although you might need to confirm that depending on the exact type of yours) and they could be therefore installed in the same pot and monitored together.
    Hope this helps!

    Hi there I have one of the parrot flower power garden monitors and I'll try fill you in on how I thi Hi there I have one of the parrot flower power garden monitors and I'll try fill you in on how I think it would be good and bad for a pro gardener

    Pros:
    it does exactly the area's you asked for monitoring sunlight levels, water in the ground and fertiliser levels, it does this by comparing the readings taken from the device to a large database of plants/trees kept in "the cloud" so it's not just telling you the raw data which of course can be viewed but it will push alerts to an apple device (possibly other like android not sure) to say the water levels low for this type of plant or similar for the other areas,
    Scientific style transducers used to gather data well the same as used over the years two prongs a set distance apart and knower resistance points of different materials (dry soil, wet soil, fertiliser level), lux meter for sunlight and temp sensor for soil temp.
    Database has loads of info even if the sensor is not monitoring that plant you can still look up loads of relevant data but then again I'm sure you already have enough knowledge and sources there,

    Cons:
    You need a newer device from Apple so iPhone 4S and above and iPads it's the mini and above. Basically anything with the new Bluetooth 4.0 standard,
    While the app can handle many sensors the sensor is limited to a specific area that it's in so many trees = many sensors @ 70.00 each.
    You need to get within a few feet of the sensors to retrieve the data to the phone which in turn sends it to the cloud for analysis against the database I mentioned earlier this is fine when it's by the backdrop in my case but for you it would mean a daily trip to where the sensors are located to get the data.

    This is what I've thought of so far I hope it helps I love the one I've got it actually helped us save a problem citrus transplant we have. If it was me I'd get say 2 and use them to test garden beds over a short period so you can be sure you know what's going on exactly.
