Gadgets We Want to Give Our Moms 2
1) Plant Sense Easy Bloom
Give mom flowers, and she'll have them for a week. Help her to grow flowers-or ferns or tomatoes-and she'll have them forever. Easy Bloom does just that. All mom has to do is stick it into the garden plot or plant pot and give it a day to sample the temperature, light level, humidity and soil moisture of the location. Then she plugs Easy Bloom into the USB port on a PC or Mac, and it uploads the readings to the Plant Sense database, which recommends either what types of plants will do best in that spot or how to help the plants that are already there.
