I am extremely proud to introduce my latest project, Seymour.  Seymour is a plant that, when rezzed, automatically generates its own genetic code from around a dozen variables governing everything from flower shape to leaf type and color.  This genetic code combined with environmental factors means that the chances of any two plants being identical are next to zero.  When the plant blooms it automatically rezzes a ‘seed’ with the same genetic code that can be passed along to another user, and when that is over it can be done all over again once more.

The plants themselves also have the ability to read and write status messages to both Plurk and Twitter. This allows you to get regular status updates and to water and feed them from either Plurk or Twitter.

If you need any more information about them you can read their entire manual online and its the same manual owners of the plant see when they ask for help.  If you’d like to see one in world you can do so at my current in world location, where you can see both the beginnings and end of the life cycle.

You can either purchase it at the location above or on XStreet, both locations are currently offering it for L$200.

If you have any questions or comments, as always, I would love to hear from you.

    Looks really good! Had my mouse over the buy button, then decided too read the manual. Too bad its another Sion-style pyramid scheme where you have to buy water and such from the maker for all eternity. 🙁

    I’d have bought a few grand worth of them to raise as gifts for myself and friends IF it wasn’t a moneysink kinda thing. Hell, I would have considered it (albeit not as many of them) IF upon reaching maturity food and water use stopped.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I did wish to make all information available to everyone before they purchased, hence the online manual. The plants that go on living do continue to connect to resources outside of Second Life that I need to maintain so while I certainly understand your trepidation and cannot speak to other other people’s products, I only made the decision to require food and water so that I could guarantee that they would always be able to connect to the resources I promised they would be able to at the beginning.

      Again, thank you for taking the time to comment and let me know if I can answer any questions you may have in the future.
