The TI's OMAP chip is one of the chips that you could probably find in some of the modern smart phone. Good and efficient chip.

My Mexican Catus Plant

Mexican Catus plant

Horray for my Mexican Catus plant.

BTW: i fed it with 100 Plus drink.
a empty can of 100 PLUS Drink
1/3 of a can of 100 Plus drink can filled up
the pot easily. The remaining 2/3 was given to other plants.

Enjoy. But don't eat my catus. :)
Have a nice day.
