The Communication Pot has a little more personality than many other indoor planters, inviting interaction beyond the weekly watering routine. The decorative contraption comprises a flower pot with an integrated water bottle, possibly requiring less frequent refilling yet engaging the user in another way.

Bas Kamp's vegetation vessel has a wick in its base that connects the soil-filled container to the integrated transparent flask. The living plant sucks its liquid nourishment up along this bit of rope very gradually, ever demonstrating its drinking rate by the quantity of disappearing H2O. The Communication Pot gives off the impression that it independently feeds itself, reminding and showing to its owner that it is a lush and thriving organism, just as hungry as him.
