Plant Life Update + Flower Power Review

I told you it was coming.

Which means I’m probably going to be repotting again soon. And I found out that I’m supposed to be using fertilizer more regularly, so we’ll see what happens.
Photobucket Pictures, Images and PhotosPhotobucket Pictures, Images and PhotosI also got a neat new plant toy for my birthday from Kevin. It is probably one of the most unique devices and it’s one of those you-don’t-know-you-need-it-until-you-have-it, kinda things.

This is going to come in handy next year when I am planting veggies! photo 6269058A-B721-45B0-A950-EDD6CA808506_zpszc99inrc.png The app shows your plant’s stats in real time, so you can see the water decreasing as the time from the last water increases. That way, you can anticipate a watering time even if you won’t be home a few days. The only downside is that the Bluetooth connection can only be made when you are within a certain range, which means that you cannot get updates on your plant when you aren’t at home. Even though this is a fairly new product, I would totally recommend it to the experienced planter and the novice and with new updates all the time, it just keeps getting better!
