The Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor makes comprehensive garden care as easy as possible, but for those willing to be more hands-on, it's not worth the cost.
The Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor communicates directly with your Wi-Fi router and collects data on soil moisture, temperature, and light. It can also use its helpful database to advise on fertilizer and misting.
After some digging, this smart plant sensor's app may be too smart for it's own good.
Not exactly plants vs. aliens: Startup Koubachi has begun selling a $99 Wi-Fi device to gauge the state of your vegetation and send you advice over the Internet.

With Koubachi's application and a little setup, it's possible to set up a smart garden, complete with care advice and email reminders, for free.
