Botanicalls Kits let plants reach out for human help! They offer a connection to your leafy pal via online Twitter status updates to your mobile phone. When your plant needs water, it will post to let you know, and send its thanks when you show it love. It comes as a kit so that you can hone your soldering skills (or teach someone else) while you build a line of communication between you and your houseplant!

This kit comes with everything you need to get your plant tweeting in no time. The ATmega328 comes pre-programmed, but you can customize it with your own messages. The only thing you need to provide is a plant, network connection (and ethernet cable), and a power outlet.

To upload custom code to the Botanicalls Kit, you’ll need either an FTDI Cable or a 3.3V FTDI Basic Breakout.

See the link below for a step-by-step guide to assembling and customizing your Botanicalls kit.

Note: It’s not shown in the parts photo, but the kit does include a (USA) 5V Wall Adapter.

Note: This product is a collaboration with Kate Hartman, Kati London and Rob Faludi. A portion of each sales goes back to them for product support and continued development.
