Water Balloon Plant Watering System With Arduino

Make a thirsty plant water balloon. via instructables

Make an automatic watering device for your Thirsty Plant with some easy to find items and simple electronics! Prime the water bomb, position in the plant pot and wait for that Thirsty Plant moment to happen. If you can’t wait, disconnect the plant sensor and let the over watering commence. No plant will ever be thirsty again.

Step 1: Things you will need:

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
