Growing great and healthy plants it is necessary to take constant care of them. On of concerns include watering. Here it is – an automated electronic watering can that periodically waters the ficus tree.
Watering can is equipped with 10 liter bucked which level is monitored with floating duck. If it goes too down, the switch is activated and watering stops. Project is running on AVR Atmega8 microcontroller. As it is based on schedule only this doesn’t mean optimal watering – I’d put a moisture sensor to detect when exactly plant needs to be watered. Despite this this is great project that should help to keep up with plant.
