Sunlight, water levels, nutrients and climate control are all within your power to command either on your phone or tablet.

According to Wilkinson, "The idea promotes 'digital downtime' by finding an alternative use for smartphones and encouraging their owners to consider a slower life. the control and nurturing of a real mini eco-system takes patience and care, contrasting with the immediacy of messaging or tweeting that is so characteristic of the smartphone generation."

Honestly? I can't tell if this is amazing or terrifying.
