Wormie water sensor
After my most recent failure in keeping my plants alive for longer than a month I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more plants; after all they are living things and I started feeling really guilty. Then I came across Wormie the water sensor, and now I am thinking maybe I can give my non-existent gardening skills one last try.
This funny looking object, which can be identified as a worm with a smiley face only thanks to its name, will keep track of your plant's need for water. Stick Wormie into the pot (or the ground) and if there is enough moisture, it will turn red; as Wormie turns paler and paler you know that it's time to water your plant.
Wormie water sensors come in different sizes and in two variations from the original design, Bella the Butterfly and Seymour the Seehorse. Prices start at $ 10.95 on Amazon.
