All plants need a few things to survive; water, soil and sunshine. Sounds simple enough, right? How many of us have brought a new plant home, found the perfect sunny spot in a window and watered it every day just to find it wilting and dead only a few weeks later? What about the plant we throw in a dark corner, forget to water it and it’s flourishing? We’ve all been there, right? Plants just may be a little more complicated than we think. What if your plants could talk and tell you what they need? For those of us lacking in the green thumb department, our plants can now tell us exactly how they feel! Sound too good to be true? Check out this new planter by Lu Designs…
Lua is able to communicate 15 different emotions making sure you always know how your plant feels.
With this new innovative planter, you are able to input information about your plant such as the plant type.
Lua measures moisture level, light exposure and temperature.
The planter has sensors on it and will only display emotions when it senses movement in the room.
If Lua is thirsty, it will display a thirsty face. Some of its other emotions include a vampire face when your plant is receiving too much sun, a sweaty face when it’s too hot, and even a sick face when it has received too much water.
Lua’s app is easy to set up and use. It generates a QR code that Lua can read and interpret right away.
Look how happy future plants are going to be!
Lua is not just all work and no play. It’s 6 core emotions display your plants needs but there are 9 additional emotions for your entertainment. It may even stick it’s tongue out when it’s feeling playful.
The planters are still in their crowdfunding stages.
They are available to preorder in 2 different colors on Indiegogo.

Why the name Lua? “All known living organisms on earth share a common ancestor. It is referred to as LUA or LUCA, for Last Universal Ancestor. Lua is the ancestor of plants and animals,” the website says. If Lua is as good as it looks, we can all feel comfortable and confident in filling our homes and offices with our plant ancestors and keeping them happy and healthy.
