Parrot Pot: The Parrot Pot is a smart, connected flowerpot that helps your plant flourish
and stay healthy. It incorporates an intelligent watering system and four
sensors that continuously analyze your plant's needs. With Parrot's Flower App
for Apple iOS and Android, you can monitor your plant's health and customize
automatic watering settings.
- Dimensions: The Parrot Pot measures 8.125" in diameter and
12.5" tall. It weighs 52 ounces (without plant, soil, or water).
- Capacity: Parrot recommends placing only one plant per Parrot pot
for optimal watering. Your plant's root bulb diameter should be approximately 6.3125" or
less. The Parrot Pot can hold up to 2.4 liters of soil. Its water
tank/reservoir can hold up to a 1/2 gallon.
- Soil Types: Parrot recommends using compost adapted to your
plant. It is not advisable to put clay pebbles in the Parrot Pot. The Pot is
optimized for compost drainage, in addition to providing the plant with the
right quantity of water via the Perfect Drop watering system.
- Operating Temperature: The Pot's built-in sensors and automatic
watering system can withstand temperatures ranging from 23°F to 131°F.
- Colors: The Parrot Pot is available in slate black, porcelain white and brick
Note: A plant that is too tall could topple the Parrot Pot.
Indoor or Outdoor Use: The Parrot Pot's sturdy, anti-UV treated ABS
plastic cover is compliant with IPX5 standard and can be used outdoors in normal
conditions, even in the rain. You can leave the Parrot Pot outside as long as
the temperature does not drop below freezing point, as frost may cause damages
to the electronics. Parrot recommends bringing in your Pot during periods of
frost, or just empty the water tank if you want to leave it outside. If you
leave the Parrot Pot outside with a full water tank during freezing periods
(below 23°F), the water will freeze. Freezing water (ice) increases in volume,
which in turn could damage the Parrot Pot and cause breakage and leak.
Note: Do not leave the Pot outside if the temperature drops below 23°F and
the water tank is full. If the temperature drops under 32°F, empty the water
tank or bring the Parrot Pot inside.
Four Built-in Sensors: The Parrot Pot's four built-in sensors monitor
light, temperature, soil moisture and fertilizer levels in real time. It then
sends out customized recommendations and alerts to help you better care for your
- Temperature: The satisfactory temperature range for most plants
is generally between 50°F to 90°F (average over one day). Variation = 23°F
to 131°F), Precision = (+/-
- Light: The light sensor is calibrated to measure the Photo
synthetically Active Radiation (PAR), which designates the spectral range of
solar radiation from 400 to 700 nm. Variation = 0 to 500 klux, Precision =
- Soil: The typical soil moisture range is generally between 8%
(very dry) to 45% (saturated). In the absence of soil, the moisture range of
the soil displayed will be 0. Most plants generally require a moisture range
of the soil between 12% and 18%. Some plants can be damaged if the moisture
range of the soil is over 40% during a long period. Water saturation
encourages the apparition of pathogen agents in the soil and plants need
oxygen at the root. Variation = 0 & agrave; 50 (%), Precision = +/-3
- Fertilizer: The fertilizer level is measured when the soil is
damp. If the fertilizer level of your plant is very high and the soil is
constantly moist, Parrot Pot cannot provide precise data and the application
will indicate that the data is not available. Water your plant generously to
remove the excess fertilizer and drain the soil correctly after. A high
level of fertilizer is likely to deteriorate the plant.
Note: The moisture sensor is placed deep below the soil to analyze the
moisture rate of the soil precisely. Even if the surface feels dry, underneath
it is actually sufficiently watered, thanks to the Perfect Drop and Plant Sitter
intelligent watering asystems.
Parrot Flower Power App: With the Parrot Flower Power application for
Apple iOS 7.0+ and
Android OS 4.4+, you can monitor your plant's development every day from
your mobile device. Additionally, you can access a vast database packed with
information on your plant's maintenance and characteristics. You compatible
Apple iOS or Android device and the Flower Power App communicates with the
Parrot Pot via Bluetooth (v4.0) Low Energy wireless technology. You can download
the Flower Power app to more than one device and setup the same user account, so
all devices can monitor and receive alerts from the Parrot Pot. You can connect
up to 200 Parrot Pots with one Parrot Flower Power account. However, you can
only collect data and interact with one Parrot Pot at a time.
- Monitoring: Get comprehensive monitoring of your plant's health -
light, temperature, level of fertilizer, and soil moisture. Enabling
notifications allows you to receive a real-time alert in the three following
cases - low water tank level, low soil moisture content, and low battery
- Plant Database: Over 8,000 varieties are listed in the Parrot
database. In the application, you will find expert advice written by top
international botanists. This customized advice helps you optimize your
plant's growth. You can also freely browse the database to discover new
varieties and learn how to care for your plants with tips and trends on
their maintenance (sunshine, fertilizer, watering, etc.).
- Suggestions: The Parrot Flower Power application helps you choose
a plant that will be perfectly suited to your environment. To do this, you
simply geotag yourself and indicate the level of sunlight (shade, half
shade, full sun). In addition, you can consult the list of plants suited to
your environmental settings according to preset categories - indoor plants,
flowering plants, fruits & vegetables, outdoor plants, trees &
shrubs, decorative leafy plants, cacti & succulents, as well as wellness
plants. The Parrot Pot is not suitable for Orchid-type plants or Bonsai
- Real-Time Management & Monitoring: When you are near your connected Parrot Pot, you
are able to check in real-time, the light intensity, ambient temperature,
soil moisture and level of water in the Parrot Pot's tank. You can even
remotely monitor your plant if you have a spare Apple iOS or Android device
connected to the Internet and plugged in within range of the Parrot Pot.
When lunching the Parrot Flower Power app, use the same user account on both
Note: You may use Parrot Pot without the mobile app. As soon the Parrot
Pot is installed, it will initiate the "default plant" parameters and
automatically waters your plant; these parameters are suitable to water 80% of
plants. The built-in warning light will advise you to water the plant or to
change the batteries
Water Tank & Watering Modes: The Parrot Pot is equipped with
a built-in 1/2-gallon water tank & reservoir. To fill the water tank of your Parrot Pot,
pour water into the water filter on the edge of the Parrot Pot. Only pour water in the water tank (no fertilizer or other liquid). From the Flower Power App, you have the option of
selecting the Parrot Pot watering mode suited for your needs. Choose from
Perfect Drop, Plant
Sitter, Custom, or Manual.
- Perfect Drop: The Perfect Drop irrigation system
is an automatic watering system for the day-to-day growth of your plant, and
only waters your plant when it needs it. The Parrot Pot automatically adapts to the
plant's natural life-cycle and adjusts water consumption accordingly, giving
your plant just the right amount of water at the right time.
- Plant Sitter: The Plant Sitter watering mode is
recommended for an absence of 10 to 30 days, as long as the water tank is
properly filled. The Parrot Pot's self-watering Plant Sitter
mode ensures up to a month of unattended care for your plant. It keeps your
plant alive and healthy by adjusting watering levels. You can leave with
peace of mind and find a healthy, happy plant when you return home. The
growth of your plant will be slower if you choose the Plant Sitter mode
instead of the Perfect Drop.
- Custom: You can customize the configuration of the automatic
watering settings for your plant.
- Manual: Your plant's automatic watering system will be turned
off, and you will need to manual water your plant.
Notes: Depending on the temperature and environment of the plant, algae growth is
possible inside the tank. However, the Parrot Pot is designed to be easily cleaned, so as to
prevent algal bloom from happening. You can also replace the pump if it no
longer functions. You can order it as a spare part at
Battery Powered: The Parrot Pot is powered by four "AA"
1.5V batteries (included).
On a fresh set of batteries, the operating life of the Parrot Pot is
approximately one year. However, battery life varies depending on the plant and
number of waterings carried out. When the battery level of the Parrot Pot is low,
the warning light flashes red. You can also us the Parrot Flower Power mobile
app on your Apple iOS or Android device to check the precise battery level of
your Parrot Pot. Moreover, you will receive a notification from the app as soon
as the battery level is down to 10%.
Warning Light: The built-in Warning Light of the Parrot Pot flashes
when the water level is low, batteries are low, or there is a problem with the
- Slow Green Flashing Light: The water level is low and the Pot's
water reservoir needs to be filled.
- Slow Red Flashing Light: The Pot's batteries are low and need
- Quick Green Flashing Light: The Pot has detected a problem with
the watering system. You will need to use the Parrot Flow Power app on your
smartphone or table to link to the Pot and determine the cause.
Water Saucer: The Parrot Pot's saucer is used to evacuate excess water
when the plant has directly been watered inside or in the event of rain outside.
If you water inside, do not forget to empty the saucer regularly to avoid
overflowing. If your Parrot Pot is outside, bear in mind that the saucer will
overflow during heavy rain. If compost is not compacted properly, the soil will
not be as water-absorbent; consequently, when Parrot Pot waters the plant,
rather than being absorbed into the compost, the water will run through the soil
and deposit directly into the saucer. In this case, you will receive an alert
from you application and via the warning light to test and trouble-shoot the
