February 4,(RIA Novosti)- Call it a growth industry. For the gardener on the go, a new service for use on mobile devices lets plants “tell” their owners in real time when they are thirsty and, for outdoor shrubbery, allows even owners who are far from home to give them the water they need immediately.

[..]
Users of the service can opt to “keep in touch” with their plants via text message, email alerts or by monitoring their plants remotely from a special website.

Prices for the package are projected to range from $99 to $150 and the first batch is due to be released as early as June.

Sounds OK, but don't let your plants see you cooking broccoli or peeling potatos. One can only imagine the 'talk' they would generate.
