The Internet For Plants
Fortunately (at least according to the Plant Twitter Kit), all that plants think about is water. Your plant's Twitter feed will essentially complain to you if you have over watered it or beg you for more water if it is hungry. It occurs to me that perhaps a better solution would be to install legs on your plant's pot and let it walk to the sink and water itself. All this dependency is really just pathetic.
Regardless, this invention still is pretty cool. I do have to wonder if it will be accurate for all plant species. Obviously orchids require more water than cacti, and who knows if there's a way to program the kit to recognize this. Those things taken into consideration, I've gotta say, it sounds like my houseplants have a much greener future to look forward to.
