Moisture Meter

Included with your plant to make watering easy.

We know finding the perfect watering routine is tough and unlike that armchair you bought last year, investing in a large living plant requires a little more attention. As a Léon & George customer, your plant comes with this simple and sleek tool that tells you when it’s time to water.

Designed and tested with research institutions and farmers, this moisture meter works without batteries and uses a simple color scale: blue = enough water, white = time to water.

customer reviews for the Bird of Paradise

Great service, beautiful plants

I always order with Leon & George for their reliable beautiful plants. Their delivery person Sam is also very careful in handling the plants- especially the extra large plants.

I love my bird of paradise plant

It’s beautiful. I did have two leaves turn yellow within days of arrival, so I just cut them off. Hopefully that doesn’t indicate there’s a larger problem - I’m thinking the transport and possibly just settling into a new watering routine. I have ordered the moisture detector to help determine when watering is needed. Hopefully that helps. Delivery by Sam was awesome.

Featured Questions

I have a last minute unforeseen event, I will be absent during the delivery, what should I do?

For White Glove delivery (XLarge and Large plants) the first thing to do is to notify us by email at bonjour@leonandgeorge.com or by phone at 0686879202 to tell us if a neighbor, friend, or caretaker can receive the plant for you, or if it can be safely dropped off at your doorstep. We will be able to transmit these new indications to the delivery person. If neither of these solutions is possible, we can also deliver to another address (office for example). Finally, as a last resort, we will schedule a new delivery. This service will be billed at the corresponding price to the delivery of your items, as indicated on the order form.

For Standard delivery (Medium & Small plants, accessories, care) La Poste Colissimo, Chronopost or UPS will send you an email to tell you the procedure to follow (redelivery or collection point). But don't delay in picking up your plant that needs light!
