Make an automatic watering device for your Thirsty Plant with some easy to find items and simple electronics!

No plant will ever be thirsty again.

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
