I’m so excited to share that HPJ has partnered with Greg, the app that helps you grow healthy and happier plants, to bring you even more data-driven, science-based plant care!
The Greg team and I agree that plant care should be highly personalized, because no two plants or environments are alike. So we both emphasize an understanding of why you’re doing something – not just the do’s and don’ts.
We share a vision of making the journey of plant care a fun and rewarding experience. Together, we’ll provide you with tools and guidance to grow plants that thrive in your environment.
Beneath the soil, Greg ⚡️…
What’s truly remarkable about the Greg app is how it works – combining good science with machine-learning to assist with the fundamental task of plant watering.
- Greg provides guidance that is rooted in the UN’s FAO Penman–Monteith method for modeling plant evapotranspiration. Using original machine-learning models, watering suggestions are adapted to each plant, location, and user.
- Monitors Earth-Sun orbital dynamics and resulting weather fluctuations specific to your location, and then personalizes watering recommendations and insights accordingly.
- Connects you to a vibrant community of plant lovers and advocates. As the community grows and activity increases, Greg learns and improves his models and understanding, which leads to better advice over time.
Why “Greg”? 🤓
Greg is short for gregarious, which means “sociable”, but in the science world, “gregarious” also means “plants and animals that live and grow in communities”.
The team behind Greg is Gregarious, Inc., a registered Public Benefit Company (PBC).
A PBC provides a public good to society beyond merely creating shareholder value. This is at the heart of the (legally binding!) company charter.
