It will take a while to get to his level of crazy, and not just about plants.

What is BT?
I got the 3 litre humidifiier for $30.00 and plugs, 4 of them for $22.00.
Plugs? I’m already a little lost. My current setup for indoor plants is three of these mini-greenhouses: https://www.menards.com/main/outdoors/g ... -10122.htm with two of the following 2’ white lights per shelf: https://a.co/d/2VrLlWO Most of the space is currently taken up with garden seed starting and overwintering succulents and Meyer lemons, so I only have two shelves in each greenhouse in order to have the lights far enough away from the plants. I don’t know if all this makes any difference in what I need.

I use TUYA smart devices. Cheap but work fine.

Check out Govee. I have their hygrometer's, hub, smart plugs and humidifier. Very happy with them. https://www.amazon.com/Govee-Hygrometer ... hdGY&psc=1
Oh wow, those are pretty spendy! The company has another option for half the price, and I’m not sure what the difference is. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BQ6P8JLD?st ... V9AEZTT6J2

Do I need a fancy thing that pairs with my phone? I was thinking about just getting a cheap pack like this. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CJM5R5N6?st ... 6DHGD61HFW

I don’t want to waste money on cheap junk that won’t do the job, but I’m definitely a budget shopper. I guess I just don’t know enough about this stuff, so any info/help is appreciated.

BT is Bluetooth. The plugs are Govee Smart Plugs. No, they are not needed but they sure are coveinant. Others have differing opinions and/or advice. Just throwing my experiences out there.
