High-Tech Gizmos for Greenhouse Owners

Posted on February 19, 2013 by Tommy Nickerson

Even among those who love gardening, it is relatively rare to meet a person who has the privilege of owning and operating their own personal greenhouse. It goes without saying that owning your own greenhouse has the potential to bring enormous benefits: fresh vegetables, dazzling flowers, thriving plant life, and many others as well. A greenhouse offers a gardener the bonus of having a relatively controlled, predictable environment in which to pursue their gardening goals. Though constructing your own greenhouse from scratch is often expensive and time consuming, the advantages a greenhouse presents over traditional gardening are often sufficient to merit such an investment.

To many people (especially non-gardeners), gardening can seem like a prototypical “low tech” endeavor, but this is actually not the case at all. Below is the list of three sophisticated gadgets currently on the market which can make gardening in a greenhouse all the more productive.

Electronic Soil Tester

Gardeners (and therefore greenhouse owners) must maintain awareness of very subtle changes which occur in their soil in order to properly nurture and develop their buds. A new device developed by Rapitest has simplified this process so that gardeners can have a quicker and more reliable way of obtaining this information. This electronic soil tester has the ability to gauge such changes with considerable accuracy, and can greatly increase efficiency in a greenhouse setting.


Water Usage Meter

Water consumption is understandably a substantial concern for greenhouse owners, both from an environmental and personal finance perspective. Using too much water can have significant negative consequences both for the environment and for one’s own pocketbook. To keep water consumption to a minimum, Absolutely New offers a convenient, clever device which monitors your exact water usage and displays it for you to see. With such water usage meters, greenhouse owners can cease to worry whether they’ve overwatered or underwatered their gardens, as they’ll know precisely how much water they’ve expended.


Time Lapse Garden Camera

Avid gardeners are usually very proud of their creations, and are quick to show off their gardens to any available onlooker. However, with traditional cameras, it is often difficult for gardeners to capture atypical and highly penetrating images of their plots. The special garden camera by TimelapseCam allows gardeners to capture their creations from nearly every conceivable angle, and also at particularly important moments: for instance, the TimelapseCam 8.0 can be left to capture the earliest moments when your plants, flowers and vegetables first begin to sprout. This special camera will enable greenhouse owners to have a great deal more fun with their creations.Byline
