About this deal
If you know one thing about anatomy, you know that thumbs should be green. If you know two things, you're also aware that living things need hydration.

After years in the garden nurturing and learning from our successes and our failures, gardeners become kind of ‘plant doctors’! Yorio, N. C., Goins, G. D., Kagie, H. R., Wheeler, R. M., and Sager, J.

Not to mention that we're now all a bunch of day-dreaming squares working 9-5 for "the man". Ugh!
Introducing Plant Life Support, the miniature lifelike IV drip for your houseplants! Pop it into a pot with the included stand, fill it up with water and it'll take care of the rest – slowly feeding your plant with just the right amount of water as and when it needs it. If your roots are slimy and smelly then you’ve got a problem. It’s important to look at whether or not the roots of a plant have been immersed too long in water – causing root rot. If you have got a case of this then, remove the plant if you can, then allow the substrate to dry out completely before deciding whether to return the plant to this space or to find a better suited environment for it.Plant life cycles vary according to the type of plant. For a bean plant, there are the following stages of growth from the seed to the mature plant: Keep collections to yourself or inspire other shoppers! Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. Koontz, H. V., Prince, R. P., and Berry, W. L. (1990).

It’s a great talking point too. Imagine if you had a friend over and they saw your Plant Life Support IV bag hanging there by your Boston fern in the corner (or whatever plant you have). They’re obviously going to laugh and ask what’s going on with it. It’s not something you see every day but it’s definitely hilarious. Barta, D. J., Tibbitts, T. W., Bula, R. J., and Morrow, R. C.
