Editor’s Pick

There aren’t many disadvantages over this to be speaking about this product, for plant lovers this is a very good device to protect and take care after their loved ones. One major con is that you should be in the range to get the notifications unless if you went out of range there is no purpose of having the device without base, They also mentioned that this device is cheap but not the one with base, if their device cannot had the exact plant details about the plant you have planted then it might be an issue even though it give you notifications.
