So users can plant a movie, a song, an actor whatever you can think of. These plants are left with messages that other users can then pickup and enjoy. So when you go to a new place you can check out all the plants and see what other people are saying about them and other fascinating facts left by other users. This ability to geo-tag locations and share with everyone or only people form your trusted network is an opportunity to discover new places whenever you walk by.
