Sansevieria trifasciata number 2.
It's a bit older then previous one, and after getting acquainted for a few minutes it started talking, mainly in the lower tone range.
Which is a bit odd, considering we call that plant "women's tongue".
Some outbursts, some silences, and went dead after 5 min. or so.
Perhaps better in a few hours.

Didn't wait that long and tried my luck again, turning the potentiometer up to 50%.
Got a nice 8 minutes recording and also made this to share online: https://youtu.be/4AD_uflC1dw

Once you have a plant rigged up, I find it best to let it play and walk away.  We are locked into a feedback cycle, and our observation anticipation and exasperation have impacts on what and how the plant operates.

After about 3 hours in, you should see how active the plant is in a 'restful' state.  And I hope you have the experience of hearing the biodata music flowing while in a different room, then enter the room with the plant and experience the changes.
