Insert the batteries and put the cover on. (It will light up right away to indicate that it's on)
Insert GAIA into your plant
If it continues to light up, it means your plant needs water
It will already be set according to the plant you indicated you have when ordered. Even though the plant setting is set for your specific plant, you can change the setting later.
And GAIA actually works! GAIA is your new plant guardian that helps you take care of your indoor plants. Through GAIA you can communicate with your plant and never forget about watering your plant again, no matter how busy you are! GAIA is friendly towards most indoor plants with soil. It comes with dry, moist, and wet moisture levels for you to adjust according to your plant needs. You will never have to worry about over or under watering your (or your friends' or coworkers') plants again!
Like your pets, your plants will let you know when they are thirsty. GAIA gives your plant a "voice" that helps you take better care of them.
