What if you had x-ray vision and could see through the opaque soil and inspect the roots of any plant or tree? “Taking Root” is a works-like prototype that lets you look beneath the soil of your home plants and see listen to what it has to say. Sometimes your favorite plants have things to say.

“I haven’t been watered in 3 days!”.

”You’re doing a great job taking care of me!”

“Today has been great. I’ve been getting 8 hours of warm direct sunlight today.”

Your plant “speaks” to you by talking through an LED embedded into its “roots” which are exposed on the outside of its flower pot. Rotate the dial to set how frequently you need to remember to water your plant. Watch the LED dance with joy every time you remember to water it on time. Forget to water your plant and the LED will dim until it’s not visible.
