CALGARY, May 22, 2014 /CNW/ - Wannabe gardeners rejoice! Turn your thumb GREEN with the latest app from Mobility Quotient. MQ GreenThumb is the single-best resource for all plant lovers, complete with detailed descriptions on common houseplants, photos, and it uniquely turns your iPhone or iPad into an incident light meter. With the assistance of the light meter, MQ GreenThumb helps you know where to place your plants to ensure they are getting the optimal light they need to thrive in your home.

It's difficult to visually distinguish the difference between "bright light" vs "dappled sunlight", especially on overcast days, or if you've just moved from a dark room to a bright room; how bright is "bright", right? The GreenThumb app offers a tangible answer to a cloudy question (pun-intended), "How much light is there?" in your home, greenhouse, or garden.

Both functional and easy to use, MQ GreenThumb offers clear descriptions and pictures, as well as the associated light ranges required for each plant; the optimal light ranges are conveniently integrated with the light meter to help you find the best location to place every plant. This is the ONLY plant-specific app available that uses your device camera as a light meter. Simply place your phone in the area in which you wish to grow your plants and watch the light meter measure how much light is there (in foot-candles or lux) and show you how much is required for any specific plant. No longer will your cactus shrivel up into a skeletal shell in a darkened corner of your house, because you'll know it requires at least 3,000 foot-candles to grow and flourish!

Did you know that you can grow your own avocado tree indoors?
Or that you can grow a bouquet of Calla Lilies, fit for a wedding, right in your own kitchen?
