I'm planning on designing something for my DT that is based on the following problem and I just need validation for it:
Do you like to own plants but never remember to water them?
Also tell me if you have seen similar ideas and refer me to them. Thanks

I think there are existing products that remind you to water plants but am not 100% sure, you would need to research it. As well as typing that into Google have a look at Google patents, there they list patents of similar products so it gives you a good idea of what has already been done on the market.
However just because something has been done before doesn't immediately rule the idea out, it may be the case that existing products don't work in the way the consumer would like and they have frustrations with it. Have a look at reviews on websites to gauge how users felt about the product they brought.
Personally I would advise making a survey, ask what frustrations people have with plant keeping, what products they already use and what their ideal product would be.
You have identified a problem of forgetting to water which could be a viable area however there could be an even bigger problem and you won't know this until you have asked.
Sign up to a gardening forum and post your questionare there, you could also (with the permission of the garden centre) set up a stall at a garden centre and ask questions to shoppers

Most of that is the plan already. this was kind of my way of doing a survey without knowing any garden forums 😂 the garden centre thing is a good idea though. I was planning on doing something like that when my previous idea was about swimming but yeah thanks for reminding me
