AI-Driven Sensor Advances Plant Care

by Mat Dirjish

Plant tech company Flora is starting a $10K Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for its patent-pending Flora Pod plant sensor. Working with the Flora App, Flora Pods provide plant growers with real-time updates, letting them know exactly what their plants need.

According to the company, the Flora Pods and app combo take the guesswork out of plant care. Users receive watering reminders, placement suggestions, moisture, humidity tips, and lighting recommendations while sharing growth progress with a community-enabled app with over 110,000 users from over 195 countries.

Flora is also the plant app that helps track carbon emissions offset by users’ own plants. Reportedly, in one year, Flora’s community of users added over 500,000 plants, helping offset over 16,000 kg of CO2.

Flora’s mission to empower millions with nature extends to its commitment to sustainability. Every Flora Pod sold will plant a tree through Flora’s partnership with One Tree Planted. Flora also partners with Patagonia through 1% For the Planet, whereby they will commit 1% of all their proceeds to environmental sustainability programs and efforts.
