Plants need TLC just like any other living thing, but sadly, they’re not really great at telling you what they want. Bitponics is looking to take a bit of that guess work out of hydroponic and aquaponic gardens with a WIFi base station that monitors your plant life and connects to automated accessories that help you care for them. The device ships with monitors for pH, water temperature, air temperature, humidity and light, connecting to the company’s Bitponics Cloud system, so you can monitor things remotely via web browser.

The system’s not cheap — it’s set to run $499 when it ships, fittingly, this spring. Check out a video walkthrough of the system just after the break.
