Seeds of Imagination

Seeds of Imagination operates on the premise that talking (er, typing) to your plants encourages interesting growth. Try: sun, water, love, happy, fruit, etc. If a word is recognized, you will see it float up toward your plant. If not, it just disappears without a trace. You may also change the color of parts of the plant by typing in colors. (note: Flash, subtle ad)

Well this explains it. All this time, I've been talking to my plants and telling them to "boycott GE" and that "GE sucks" and the words were disappearing without a trace.

Some of the plants you can make are really frickin scary looking.

Try: global warming, ozone depletion, nuclear waste, acid rain, habitat destruction, murder, death, kill, etc.

i tried global warming. It didn't do anything. I was really hoping "greenwashing" would bring back some fun effects, but no...

"flood" caused more rain than regular "rain"
"thunder" caused thunder
"drought" caused the sun to come out, but nothing fancy
"dry" caused something vaguely smokelike to come from the flower
It understood "burn", but didn't do anything with it. Same with "worm".
It understood "bees", but not "birds".

I feel like I'm doing a word search, trying to find hidden animations by the programmers.

I followed a hint and typed in 'heya', which caused my plant to grow for the first time.

It then continued to grow after I typed in:
"You seem to like Outkast" and
"That's a rather phallic growth pattern".

I liked this better when it was selling Whoppers.

Trippy. It reminds me of the all-night LSD experience I had with Thomas Dolby.

Hahaha, try "huge". Trippy, man, makes me want to buy GE products...

For purposes of this app, ge=huge. I never realised ge had such a positive impact on the environment. I'm sold!

"gum" makes the flowers blow bubbles

I told my plant to wither, shrink, shrivel, wilt, and die. It dissapeared pretty quickly.

Type in "hate" enough and you can kill it.

It understood "burn", but didn't do anything with it. Same with "worm".

When I typed "worm" little worms jumped out of the soil and did flips like dolphins.
