By definition, pets are animals, but there is no essential reason that plants can't be pets. Pets should be able to provide companionship, emotional support and reduce stress levels. The main barrier for plants is the lack of reaction. In return, humans often feel plants as lifeless.
This IOT solution provides a way for owners to interact with their plants, so they receive same level of emotional comfort. Owners are able to check the status of their plants, and the IOT device expresses "emotions" on behalf of the plant based on their conditions.
