På en japansk kafe, har potteplanten av arten hoya kerri, kalt Midori San, fått sin egen blogg.
På Yahoo kan man lese:
Innledningen på bloggen minner meg mistenkelig om en jeg har lest hos et svenskt bloggfenomen. Unnskyld Midori-San.
A pot plant in a Japanese cafe has been writing her own blog on a computer to keep customers posted on its thoughts.
Engineer Satoshi Kuribayashi, who has been studying how to communicate with plants, helped Midori-san express herself.
He wired up the hoya kerrii, commonly known as a "sweetheart plant", to a sensor that measures bio-electric signals and translates them into Japanese using a computer algorithm.
A typical blog entry reads: "Today was a sunny day and I was able to sunbathe a lot. I had quite a bit of fun today."
Customers at the Bowls Cafe in Kamakura, near Tokyo, are taking a keen interest in their green friend's musings.
