Plants are great, but they require constant attention in the form of time and care – two things a lot of us are unwilling to give up twice a week. Forget being at one with nature, let this automated plant pot do all the graft. The plant seeds are surrounded by internal sensors, while a microprocessor uses specially-designed software to figure out just what the plant needs.
So this high-tech plantpot has the nurturing process covered, it's not needy like a normal plant and more importantly, you won't have to water and fertilise it. Just check the status light: green = ok, blue = needs water, red = replace batteries. Great if you go away a lot, or are just downright lazy. Alan Titchmarsh, eat your heart out.
