Computer assisted gardening

Neat toy I saw this weekend, the Easy Bloom USB key plant sensor, helps you pick the right plants for your specific growing area and helps diagnose plants that are in trouble.

The senor is first plugged into your computer’s usb port and allows you to register for the service. The you plant the extended device into the ground where you want to plant or where you have already planted something.

Over a period of 24 hours the device records various details about the soil composition and the growing zone.

The company has a database of over 5,000 plants that it then compares results against and provides recommendations.

From the site:

  1. Plant recommendations. Use our sensor and web site to find out exactly what plants will thrive in any location – indoors or out.
  2. Plant monitoring. Find out what is wrong with an ailing plant and get expert advice on how to bring your plant back to health.
  3. Plant Library. Search our 5,000+ plants, create a personal library of your plants, add notes and other information – all with our easy to use website.
