Approach: Physically touching the plant or the soil, will drive a conversational narrative of the plants well-being and personality. Embedded with advanced capacitive, moisture and weight sensors in the soil of plant, enabled capturing well-being-data, and map these to a mobile narrative.

Results: A functional prototype consisting of a hardware device inserted into the soil, and a React mobile application running the narrative.
