Practice Plant

I’m no green thumb, have never been good at growing plants, and the only thing that seems to stay alive is my cactus which by the way fights everyday against my dog. The Flower Nurse is an artificial potted plant by where flowers take on the form on information expressing its needs via color changes. Each flower displays a single barometric reading whilst the droop of the leaves indicate when it’s time to pay more attention and figure out what’s wrong.

      How many real flowers do you know that have digital climate readouts? This is cute. I don’t want one, though. I’m still stressing out about my Fluff on Facebook. This might give me a full blown anxiety attack. 😀

    • Not everyone has a green thumb. I can't keep plants alive at all. I'd love a practice plant so I don't keep killing innocent real ones.

      That is excellent, did you copyright your plant? I like the design of yours much better.

    I like it. Its a more tactile version of the 90’s Tamagotchi toys. Virtual plants that double a a sim-game. It would be a great office desk toy.

    Well since it’s called a “practice” plant I think the point is for people like me who kill everything we touch. This is so cute and it might actually help me figure out how to keep a real one alive. And it is not easy for me!
