In a quest to drink less coffee and more water I discovered this free app – plant nanny. Being an avid gardener, even if the results are not always satisfactory – see camouflage and deception on my balcony, I have grown to like this little garden on my phone. It’s like having your own plant version of a tamagotchi (the japanese electronic version of a pet) – you need to make sure you water it sufficiently or the plant will die. If it is happy it sings, it waves at you, the app is limited but sufficient to ensure you don’t want your plant to die. Oh, and you can give each plant a name too!
