Cool work in progress from londonium2021 on Hackster.io:
This is the latest upgrade to my indoor garden. There is a water pump controlled by an Arduino that feeds a series of Blumats. Blumats drip small amounts of water over time based on the moisture level of the soil. They suck out water from the main water line when capillary action forces water through the ceramic sensor as it dries. This is a convenient way to control moisture without needing a lot of code or individual pumps and relays.
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.
