Some people care for their plants in a way that’s borderline obsessive. Which is why we have a feeling this project tutorial from Salma Mayorquin and Terry Rodriguez will appeal to many! Check it out in full on Hackster.io.
Drought stress in plants typically manifests as visually discernible drooping and wilting, also known as plasmolysis, indicating low turgidity or water pressure. Naturally, low water pressure in a plant can result from rapid transpiration and affects nutrient transport.
Schedule-based irrigation is simple but cannot adapt to the visual context of plant stress. The burden remains on the gardener to adjust for changing demands to limit waste and damage due to suboptimal watering.
