Have you ever found yourself with a struggling houseplant, demanding to know why it won’t thrive? Let the Wázai 2.0, the world’s smartest bonsai, turn you into a master home gardener.
Finally, you can have a plant that tells you exactly what it needs and when. This smart bonsai plant comes with its own monitoring app to update you on the plant’s needs. The app monitors and provides real-time information about your plant. This includes monitoring how many hours of sunlight your plant gets, so you know when to make changes to keep your plant healthy and happy.
Wázai 2.0 will even alter how frequently the plant gets watered and monitor the soil for optimum moisture levels. As the product’s Kickstarter page explains, “Unlike other automatic watering pots, Wázai doesn’t water on a set schedule but will adjust its watering frequency according to the soil moisture rate, making sure your plant gets what they need.”
The bonsai also includes a huge water tank that holds 1.8 liters and gives you notifications when the tank needs refilling. Additionally, a vacation mode allows the app to more carefully regulate the water to keep your plant alive while you’re gone.
You can even start using the app before you pot your plant. Wázai will monitor the average sunlight in the area for three days and recommend ways to keep your new plant healthy and happy. Equipped with an enormous plant database, the app can find the specific water and light needs for more than 80 different types of plants.
Wázai works both indoors and out, due to waterproof and anti-UV features. All you need to keep it powered is four AA batteries, which can last for up to six months.
Though still a burgeoning startup, Wázai 2.0 has already earned accolades in the form of an iF Design Award. To support the project and secure your own Wázai, check out the Kickstarter page here.
