With Monday finally wrapping up, it’s time to start thinking about next weekend. Why not spend it Twitter-enabling your house plants?

Botanicalls Twitter answers the question: What’s up with your plant? It offers a connection to your leafy pal via online Twitter status updates that reach you anywhere in the world. When your plant needs water, it will post to let you know, and send its thanks when you show it love.

I’ve managed to make it through the winter with only two plant casualties so far. There isn’t a whole lot I can do about the scarcity of light in Minneapolis, but with a little Arduino hacking I could at least remove watering issues from the equation.
