The $79 Click and Grow
smartpot is for the gardener without the green thumb. After adding batteries and filling the water tank, you can forget about tending to your plant and simply watch it grow. The device gives your plant the appropriate doses of water (recycling the rest) and fertilizer, and you only need to add a new plant cartridge if your old plant has died. Instead of tossing out the plastic container that your plant comes in, though, you keep the reusable potting container, so you're reducing your overall waste. You can get a Starter Kit with Mini Tomato, Chili Pepper, Cockscomb and Basil, then get refills of 10 different plants.
