It's easy to see why so many potted plants die. Unlike pets, plants just don't show you when they need watering until it is too late. So Jae-Han Song's concept design for breathable plant pots is a great idea for the botanically-challenged who need all the visual cues they can get.
The simulated breathing of the pots reminds the homeowner that it is still alive and well. But when it stops "breathing," then it is time to give it water and put it in a spot where it can get sunshine.
