It's true, you desperate houseplants, now you can tweet for help!
I've been wanting to do a post on digital advances in gardening for a while, but now I think we are there. Check out Botanicalls, created by Sparkfun Electronics. And, you can customize it. It's a little expensive ( for now) but imagine the possibilities ( or not?). I would have no use for one used un houseplants, but in a greenhouse of rare orchids and South African Bulbs, I can think of many applications, but perhaps, with a little tweaking.
If you have any great ideas on how real planstman could use this device, let me know, and collectively we can let the company know. I am sure that they would love to know. An ingenious electronic device (sku: KIT-10334) from SparkFun, offers a connection to your leafy pal via online Twitter status updates to your mobile phone.
