With Flower Power, Anyone Can Have A Green Thumb
Parrot Flower Power is a sensor that can be "planted" close to a plant, indoors or outdoors, in a pot or in open ground. It precisely measures, in real time, the parameters that are crucial for the growth and good health of plants: soil moisture, fertilizer, ambient temperature, and light intensity. Plants have vital needs, and Parrot Flower Power uses advanced sensor technologies to monitor the plants' welfare through a range of parameters. Using the data gathered every 15 minutes by the four sensors, users are able to understand the exact requirements of their plants. The materials chosen for manufacturing the Flower Power ensure the product is watertight and robust. The Parrot Flower Power can be used both inside and outside (from -10 °C to 55° C). Waterproof, it can withstand watering, rain, and liquid fertilizer. Put it in the ground or in a pot and monitor the changes in your plants and garden.
Bluetooth Smart & Real Time Monitoring Of Multiple Plants
The data retrieved by the Parrot Flower Power is sent to your Smartphone or Tablet using Bluetooth low energy technology, allowing it to communicate with Bluetooth Smart Ready devices. Bluetooth Low Energy is a wireless technological standard which consumes very little energy. When you are near your Flower Power, you can use Live mode to check the light intensity, ambient temperature, and soil humidity. Every 15 minutes Flower Power measures four data sources and stores the data in its memory. Every two hours Flower Power sends data to your Smartphone via Bluetooth Low Energy. If you are not within Bluetooth range, it keeps the data in its memory until you are back within range (data kept for up to 80 days). Alerts are sent to your Smartphone each time one of your plants needs attention. There is no need to be near your Flower Power to get the notifications. A Parrot Flower Power can monitor several plants in the same pot, in a planter or on a small plot of land if the conditions of watering, soil drainage, and exposure to the sun and wind are uniform.
A Dedicated App
Download the free Parrot Flower Power App on your Smartphone/Tablet. The application will then connect your Flower Power to the Parrot Cloud (via 3G/4G or Wi-Fi), where the data is analyzed. After the data is analyzed, you will receive an alert in real time when one of your plants has special water, fertilizer, light, or temperature needs. Follow the changes in your garden directly or simply consult Parrot's vast but easy to use database. Using the application, users can select their plants from the database in the Parrot Cloud, which has been developed by botanists. More than 6,000 varieties are listed and custom advice is given on maintaining each plant.
Garden - Monitor Multiple Plants At The Same Time
With the Parrot Flower Power App, you can track the status of multiple Flower Power sensors, and the health of your whole garden.
"To Do" List
As well as monitoring the status of different plants, the Parrot Flower Power App will create a "To Do" list based on current alerts and the predicted status of your plants over the next few days.
Water & Fertilizer
The Parrot Flower Power App monitors the moisture level in the soil surrounding your plant and can track it over time, allowing you to plan for regular watering. By also tracking the fertilizer levels, you'll be able to plan when to add plant food to your scheduled watering.
Heat & Light
The Parrot Flower Power App will give you a chart of the temperature levels in the soil of your plant and compare it with the ideal levels for your chosen plant species. The Parrot Flower Power sensor also keeps track of the amount of light your plant is receiving and will warn you when conditions are too shady or too bright.
When the water, heat, light, or fertilizer levels of your plants are in need of special attention, the Parrot Flower Power App will create an alert to tell you what needs to be done.
If all the levels are currently good, the Parrot Flower Power App can help you plan ahead for when you need to water or feed your plants.

Well, my technophobic wife loved the idea and we decided to "plant" in in a sick indoor Cycas to see.. or rather, diagnose, the problem. Within 36 hours, we found that the Cycas wasn't getting enough light and there was TOO MUCH FERTILISER ... who would have thought? It even guided us to water the plant more, so as to get rid of the excess fertiliser and told us the temperature and moisture were OK. My wife said, "I thought of doing the same thing" ( and she's had a green thumb for decades) "But having it all spelled out, with data and recommendations...it feels much more scientific and satisfying"
This is pretty amazing. I noted another review that stated that it doesn't tell us how much more to water, or how much fertiliser to add, or how much more sun is needed. Actually, that would be great, but maybe its expecting too much. It does show in real time how much light the plant is getting and this suits us fine. It told us our indoor fig (Ficus) needed more light, the temperature, moisture and fertiliser levels were fine, so we moved it nearer to the window. Lets see how many days it needs.Read more ›
It seems to me that the flower power is useless if it can't get wet. I will revise my review if I get my money back or a replacement.
Update August 10, 2014. I still have not heard anything from the company. The defective unit does not turn on at all, so it can't be used indoors or outdoors.
Gardening is my passion! I have grown indoors and out, for years (56 houseplants, 3 acres of gardens and lawns). I live in the mountains in Colorado and making sure my plants have enough sunlight can be quite a task! When I first saw this device, I was VERY excited! Finally, a device that automatically checks most of the soil/growth parameters that a significant number of amateur horticulturists might struggle with. Perhaps the anticipation got the best of me.
-Measures Temperature, Soil Moisture, Fertilizer Level, and Sunlight Amount/Intensity.
-Reminders and notifications when any of these are out of bounds.
-Vast majority of plants that people will come across are in their database.
-Tailors recommendations and parameters to the species being grown.
-Nerd Factor! haha
-Who the heck designed the User interface??? Options Include:
-Flower Child circa 1965
-Everything takes FOREVER (>24 hours) to update!
-Once it FINALLY updates, the suggestions are vague general statements.
-Not enough sun (Well how much more does it need???)
-Add more fertilizer (Again, how much?)
-Perhaps add some kind of status bar to indicate where the plant is, and what the deficiency is.
-No WiFi to push info through to the cloud (Netatmo, Philips hue, or Nest)
-Everything must go through Bluetooth on a phone.
-Phone must be in range
-No application for a home computer (!!!Read more ›
A few updates after 4 months in the ground.
I tested the battery, and it's still at full capacity. This is the alkaline battery that came with the device. I would guess a lithium battery could last for years (Perhaps for the life of the unit, but that thought hurts my feelings.)
Unit is completely unobtrusive. Doesn't look like you've got tech in the garden. Mine is green, and you simply don't see it.
Moving the unit about the yard has sometimes surprised. We're mostly organic gardeners and use virtually no fertilizer or insecticide. So, it was strange to find an area that had too much fertilizer. Then realized this was an area where we used systemic insecticide to save our investment in some flowering trees. A catastrophic insect bloom was likely precipitated by drought conditions, and the bug hoards laughed at insecticidal soap, etc. The systemic included fertilizer, so there you go.Read more ›
