PhytlSigns is an innovative piece of wearable tech for plants

Swiss company launches new technology that lets your plants communicate with you and the possibilities are far reaching. The PhytlSigns, which is an innovative and unique piece of wearable tech for plants, is a plant monitor unlike any other, because it specifically listens in to what the plant itself is communicating rather than simply measuring the air temperature or the soil around it.

PhytlSigns works by amplifying the electrical signals that plants use to communicate internally, allowing us, for the first time, to hear them (though a speaker attached to the device) and see them (through an app on your phone or tablet). Water or mist your plants, and observe with PhytlSigns how, through their language of electrical signals, they are reacting to their environment.

If you are a keen gardener or plant enthusiast, a techie into signal processing, or a professional grower or academic working with plants, PhytlSigns opens up the fascinating world of plant communication. It is really different and it will be good to see day-to-day variations and start to see patterns. You will get to know your plants’ signals, hearing and seeing what plants are telling us is, however, just one part of the PhytlSigns story.

By analysing the signals our plants are emitting we can start to unlock the messages within them, and ultimately – decode the language of plants such as is a plant under attack from pests? Does it need water? Understanding what our plants are saying is exciting for everyone.
