Soil Moisture Detecting Pot for House Plants #CircuitPlayground #CPE #MakeCode

NewImage

Struggle to keep you plants growing? Tessasue1 on Instructables made a Circuit Playground soil sensor. Perfect for those who don’t quite have a green thumb.

This tutorial will walk you through a step by step process for creating your very own pot that detects your house plant’s soil moisture levels. This design will help you identify when and how much water your plant needs to provide excellent care and nutrients.

A quick overview of the tutorial includes coding the Adafruit Circuit Playground in Make Code to create a soil moisture detector and how to incorporate your playground into your house plants pot. The playground detects the soil moisture and distinguishes them between three levels; wet, mid, and dry. When the soil is “wet” the playground will be clear. When the soil is “dry” the lights on the playground will be red. When the soil is in between wet and dry, “mid,” the lights will turn yellow.

Hopefully, this will help all you plant lovers out there like me, who struggle to keep their plants alive.
