Friday Fun with Plant Care

    What do you do when you have a good bit of skill with programming, are lousy at taking care of plans, and have some time on your hands? You create Please Take Care of My Plant. A community of Reddit users votes daily as to whether “Jeff” (the name of the Zebra Plant in question) gets watered or not. If they decide to water the plant, he gets watered via an automated system. If they decide to let him sit, he sits. The community thus far has taken great care of the plant, thanks to moisture readings provided by the system, and they’ve been able to fend off folks who have been trying to kill the plant by either drowning it or drying it out by rigging the votes. It’s an interesting experiment as a whole and a fun one to follow.
