The EasyBloom Plant Sensor helps you grow a perfect garden without all of the guesswork. If you’ve ever wondered, “Is this corner too hot, too dark, or too dry?”, EasyBloom is for you. You will begin to garden with confidence. Instead of wondering which plants will thrive where, you will know for sure with EasyBloom.

This ingenious in-ground sensor reads and analyzes growing conditions in specific spots inside your home or in your yard. It measures sunlight, temperature, humidity, soil moisture and drainage. It even uses the same technology used on NASA's Mars Phoenix mission to measure the soil.

After a minimum of 24 hours, you just plug it into your computer USB port and watch as it turns readings into recommendations, listing plants sure to flourish in your exact environment. Narrow your search more by specifying desired bloom color or season, plant height, drought tolerant, deer resistant, and other features.

EasyBloom puts expert plant help in the palm of your hand:
• Access the EasyBloom database of 5,000+ plants (developed with the largest growers of plants and flowers)
• Find plants to thrive in every area of your home and garden, based on algorithms developed by leading plant horticulturalists and botanists
• End the discouraging cycle of trial-and-error planting
• Diagnose ailing plants and bring them back to health
• Keep inventory of your own plants for one-click plant care
• EasyBloom data is specifically calculated for the United States and is not recommended for use outside of the U.S.

PlantSense EasyBloom cycle

How It Works

1. Set It
Plug the EasyBloom Plant Sensor into a USB port--you will be brought to your My EasyBloom Dashboard page. Put the sensor into Recommend or Monitor mode.

2. Place Sensor
Place the sensor in a spot where you would like to grow a plant, or adjacent to the plant that needs monitoring. Let the EasyBloom Plant Sensor gather a ‘plant's eye’ view of that location.

3. Plug It In
After 24 hours, plug the sensor into your USB port. Sensor data is uploaded to the EasyBloom website where algorithms are run that will either recommend a plant or diagnose what is wrong with an ailing plant.

4. Get Results
When in Recommend mode, the EasyBloom website will present a set of plants that will thrive in that location. In Monitor mode, you will be told what is going wrong with a plant with visual cues on how to fix it.

5. Enjoy
Sit back and enjoy flourishing plants.

The ultimate "why didn't someone think of that sooner" invention, EasyBloom is like having your own personal team of botanists on-call around the clock. The result? You spend a lot less time working in your garden, and a lot more time enjoying it. EasyBloom is a perfect gift for novices to experienced gardeners. The Plant Sensor is completely reusable and works with your PC or Mac.

This is a great product for anyone that doesn't have a "green thumb" but has a love for plants!
C. Alvarez
I got some help from customer service via Twitter, and I kept being told that EASYBLOOM DOES NOT WORK OVERSEAS, which the software had already told me.

After 48 hours, I plugged the sensor into the computer and it told me what plants were good for that particular location.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

When I received the EasyBloom Plant Sensor, I was excited because I had been struggling to grow plants on my new property despite years of gardening experience. This product promised to recommend and monitor my plants to determine what was going wrong. Unfortunately, it measures nothing more than I could tell by sticking my own finger in the soil and watching the shadows for a day: moisture and light. Yes, it measures temperature and relative humidity, but those vary both daily and seasonally and can be figured out by walking out the door. It does not analyze the soil -- probably the most crucial information that cannot be intuitively known -- for type, fertility, toxicity, and acidity. You must discover and enter this yourself on the web site.

The monitor setting does basically the same thing, only over a longer time so you can see the moisture and light fluctuations over a longer period of time; again, it cannot diagnose over- or under-fertilization, incorrect acidity, compacted or too sandy soil, diseases, or pests, the most common reasons a plant dies. The EasyBloom can take a snapshot of the location for future reference.

Probably the best part of the device is the web interface that provides detailed information on recommended plants. Yes, this information can be found online or in a good plant book, but the site shows thumbnail photos of the plants that can then lead the user to a more detailed description, including care, known pests, height, growing zones, attractiveness to birds, shape, etc. I really would have liked a "deer resistant" option; maybe they will add that in the future. Strangely enough, the site does not recommend the plants that *are* thriving in my landscape.

I'm a landscape architect specializing in design, construction and planning. I am not an expert in plant materials like a botanist. The `easy Bloom' was a real eye opener for me. It has a library of thousands of plants with detailed descriptions of anything a botanist or ordinary `garden-variety' gardener would want to know. It is virtually an on-line encyclopedia and more expansive than the Western Garden Book.

Some of the options were: Plant recommendations, Environmental Conditions, Edit (later info) and Notes (personal). Searching for a certain plant, you can choose: Bloom Color, Bloom Season, Foliage, Characteristics, Special features, Height, Plant Type, Shape/Form and Soil Type.

There are SO MANY options. I decided to try it on indoor and outdoor plants, but finally decided to share just one problem spot I have. On my deck I have a large potted barrel about two feet high by three feet in diameter with good loamy soil. Oddly, nothing seems to really do well there. So I planted the `easy Bloom' in the dirt for 24 hours. Then I placed the USB stick into my computer and was asked to refine my plant choices by: Bloom Color, Bloom Season, Foliage characteristics, Special features, Height, Plant Type, Shape/Form and Soil Type.

I picked through all the options of what I wanted and within a few seconds, the `best' plants choices for my barrel were for:
Height: fern (American Maidenhair), Hyacinth, Tulip, Carpet Bugle, Lily, Coleus.

Bloom (of nine colors I chose red): Coleus, Tulip, Geranium.

Environmental Conditions told me for that 24 hour period: Average temp was (51-55 degrees) with mostly midday sun and moderate to fairly high humidity.

Verified Purchase
The PlantSense EasyBloom Plant Sensor requires a paid subscription to use the soil analysis feature. I did not see any notice of this until I received the product and was installing the software. Even then, the cost of the subscription was not provided. I also wasn't able to adequately understand how the other features were accessed. The product was purchased from X-treme Geek. I called about returning it. The representative was friendly and helpful, and I quickly obtained a refund from Amazon. Thank you, X-treme Geek!

This product offers very little as far as what plants need. No nutritional analysis (NPK), PH of soil, only light and moisture. Using your better judgement would be more effective and allow you to learn as a gardener. In order to access the plant database the company offers, you have to agree to allow the company to view your viewing history (last viewed website). Also the company allows itself to sell your info to companies it deems appropriate (see agreement). Why this is neccessary to find a good spot for a plant, I am at a loss. This is the cutest package of spyware ever. Unfortunate that a good idea fell extremely short of potentials. What else should I expecting in our times :(

Finally someone invented this product! I cannot tell you how many plants I have killed in my lifetime. I never know if they die because I watered them too much, too little, or if it wasn't getting enough light, etc. Now there is actually a device that can tell me the answer! Thank you thank you. No more throwing dead plants and $$ down the drain. Love it!
