Midori-SanThe Telegraph reports that a pot plant named Midori-san has joined the blogosphere. The plant lives on a counter in a cafe in Japan. The Telegraph says the potted plan contains detector which respond to "light and human touch." Data from the detectors is combined with weather and temperature information to create the plant's blog posts.

Midori-san's short entries include a self-photo and comments about the weather like, "It was cloudy today. It was a cold day." Another example is, "Today was a sunny day and I was able to sunbathe a lot... I had quite a bit of fun today.

A post on Pink Tentacle has a diagram of the plant interface system used so Midori-san can blog. There's also been a plant named pothos that has been twittering since February, 2008. The tweets from Pothos get more urgent when Pothos needs water.
