    Promising review: "These definitely catch annoying fungus gnats. I have used some gnat killer spray directly to the soil to kill the gnats but after one of my succulents died after using it I was hesitant. My local nursery recommended these traps and prefers them over the spray. While I don't feel they get rid of the problem completely I have found other ways to eliminate them in conjunction with these traps. These pebbles help create a barrier from gnats getting to the soil to lay eggs and creates a barrier from hatched gnats to get out. Just make sure to cover the soil completely! I also make sure to put the yellow traps on the bottom notch as they fly low. I have found I catch more when they are placed lower rather than higher. This has helped eliminate those annoying gnats!" β€”Kels

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    4. An impossibly cute ladybug moisture meter that'll help you keep track of water levels and never overwater again! It also works for outdoor gardens.

    Promising review: "So cute! It seems to work perfectly. The instructions say to remove between uses but I plan to leave it in. My mother used to have this little guy in another color and it never seemed to have issues while keeping permanent residence in the soil. I would definitely recommend. It stayed dry when dry and wet when wet- pretty straight forward! A must have when you’re nursing plants that are sensitive to overwatering!" β€”BreatheSunshine

    Get it from Amazon for $6.03.

    5. An ever-popular AeroGarden indoor hydroponic garden for your kitchen. Grow herbs, tomatoes, peppers, or your own seeds with this incredibly easy-to-use system that alerts you when water and plant food is needed and runs on an automatic light cycle.

    The Areogarden sits on a user's countertop with different types of herbs and vegetables growing in each of its six pod compartments

    Promising review: "I have a black thumb which I think is important to add to this review. I planted everything photographed Jan. 13, 2019 and I took this photo this morning (Feb. 5, 2019) it takes care of itself and they grow a little bit more each day. It's the most exciting part of my morning routine...while my coffee brews I admire my plants! I used the basil and parsley from the packet that came with the kit. But I ordered my own seeds along with the 'plant anything kit'." β€”Kristy Campbell

    Get it from Amazon for $99.97 (available in three colors).

    6. A deluxe indoor propagation kit complete with humidity dome, grow light, thick seed tray, and handy booklet which will have you indoor farming by summertime.

    The propagation kit

    Promising review: "I've had this sprouter kit for a little over three months. It came in mid-winter so I used it to help bulk up two small basil plants and three small sage plants. It did a good job with this. Next I used it to start seeds, eight tomato plants and four basil. This batch of seeds all germinated fine. Next I used it to start another batch of seedlings. This batch includes tomatoes, basil, chicory, nasturtiums, oregano, and chervil. Everything has germinated fine, except the chervil. Chervil is a slow germinator so I will leave this batch of seedlings under the sprouted dome for a few more days, until the chervil germinates. I really like this product!" β€”J Ahrens

    Get it from Amazon for $46.40.

    7. A charming Bonsai tree kit which will bring moments of zen-like calm to your days as you gaze upon its miniature mystery.

    Promising review: "I always wanted a bonsai kit but have been putting it off forever. Finally bought this one a few weeks ago and sowed the seeds on 5/27. Today is exactly two weeks later, and look at these bad boys! They are getting huge, quick! The Picea Abies finally broke through yesterday, and the Jacaranda Mimosifolia are just below the soil getting ready to come out.

    The kit comes in a neat little box with four pots and pellets, some cute little bamboo signs, some clippers, a guide, and of course, seeds! Mine had four Delonix Regia, five Pinus Aristata, five Picea Abies, and like 20 Jacaranda Mimosifolia! Absolutely recommend this kit for someone who wants to grow some trees from seed.

    A word of warning of course: Be patient! Don't expect a thick trunked bonsai tree anytime soon, its going to take a very, very long time!" β€”Fransisco S.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    8. A 30-day digital, programmable drip irrigation system for a truly "set it and forget it" indoor gardening experience. Powered by simple USB hookup, this is the perfect tool for when you have to travel for longer periods of time and can't get anyone to plant-sit.

    Promising review: "Purchased mainly because life can get so hectic that watering plants is often overlooked. Setup can be daunting, all the pieces seem like a jigsaw puzzle, so it's good to map things out on paper prior to setup since the instructions leave much to be desired. To make it easy on your fingers, boil some hot water and use that to soften the hose when attaching the valves. Make sure the programmable unit and plants are above the water source, to avoid gravity siphoning water into your plants. After initial setup using the included parts, it was encouraging to see that this did water my plants for a month.

    Highly recommend testing in a sink or bathtub to verify all drips are working. Also, before going on vacation, experiment over several days to make sure it is not watering too much or too little. Use a clear container to verify that water is being pulled consistently. It took me a few weeks to figure what settings worked best for my own needs which was 26 seconds every two days. After making sure it worked over time, I upgraded using an expansion kit including drip sickles with output control and more cross valves. Now I have this unit set up to disperse water to 18 plants." β€”Chi

    9. A set of support stakes to help keep delicate indoor plants such as orchids or climbing vines proudly propped up and reaching skyward.

    Promising review: "This book is a MUST HAVE for anyone and EVERYONE who struggles to understand the most essential concepts of keeping so-called 'easy to grow' houseplants alive, let alone THRIVE. (I'm looking at you, bestie 😘) It takes you step-by step through the process of keeping 119 of the most common houseplants happy and healthy, and the photos are nice and close up so you can really SEE the plants and what the author is describing. I think EVERYONE, from thumbs of black to green, can learn a few things from reading this book.
