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:
Thirsty Plant Sensor
Some sticks (twigs, lollipop sticks, pencils)
Some fixings (elastic bands, string, wire, glue)
Something sharp (pin, map pin, badge back, pencil)
Some small water bomb
9 volt battery
Components from the Start Arduino kit (or bought separately):
Arduino Uno Servo Motor
2 x Jumper wires
2 x Crocodile clips
9v Barrel Connector
