Sensor size
« on: February 12, 2018, 12:46:11 PM »
Hi everyone, Im going to buy a Midisprout for Iphone and wanted to see if anyone has o can help me with their experience.

I have lots and lots of orquids but their leaves are very thin (Neofineta Falcata), is there a way for the sensors to be thinner or get different sensors, or another alternative any of you guys can think of?

Also is there a way to buy it in San Francisco?

Thank you guys!

Hello Rathwulf, you can always purchase a sprout or biodata kit from me at https://squareup.com/store/electricityforprogress , or perhaps the dudes are still selling their units with the iOS cables.  But i think you will need to buy online, unsure if there is anywhere besides myself and Commend in NYC who has any stock.

If you are attaching to thin leaves, i would recommend either cutting down the electrode pads or you could purchase these clamps (w/ 3.5mm plug and which need routine cleaning). The gel electrode pads used are sticky but minimally damage the plant, i've had trodes on one of my snake plants for a year, it grows under them.
