Using a Midi Sprout (now called PlantWave) to read the bioelectrical signal from a plant which is then converted to a MIDI signal and sent to an Arturia MicroFreak. The audio is then sent through a Chase Bliss Mood to add some lo-fi effects and reverb.

The plant used was a Maranta Tricolour which was due for some water so the leaves look a little droopy. It is interesting to try the Midi Sprout with a variety of plants in different states to see how it affects the bioelectrical signal.
