What would you want your plant to sniff out?

Asked by Cruiser (34984 points ) January 27th, 2011

Apparently our tax dollars are hard at work developing plants that can sniff out bombs!! It appears they can “program” these plants to sniff out other chemicals like radon to TNT! I can see a quite a few everyday applications with this technology and I ask my fellow Jellies if they would line up to get a plant that could sniff out what at home? What role could a blood hound household plant be in your home?

Sniff out lost remotes and keys? Detect whether your 9 year actually took a bath like they say they did? What could this plant sniff out that would make your life easier or safer??

How about a plant that can sniff out which one of your roommates ate all of your peanut butter?

@cubozoa Unfortunately, most of those type of plants would spontaneously combust around the average office place. ;)

@cubozoa Let’s call a spade a spade. You know who is going to dig out those bushes, right?
