How to make an Arduino Indoor Garden?

Gardening in the modern age means making things more complicated and arduous, with electrons, bits, and bytes. Combining micro controllers and gardening is a really popular idea. I think that’s because gardens have very simple inputs and outputs that are easy to wrap your head around. I guess people (myself included) see a notoriously simple and relaxed hobby and can’t help but feel compelled to over complicate it.

This project is so handy to make specially after getting the customized PCB that we’ve ordered from JLCPCB to improve the appearance of our car and also there is enough documents and codes in this guide to allow you create your automatic garden system.

This project is made in just 7 days only,three days to finish the hardware making and the assemble, then 4 days to prepare the code and the android app. in order to control the garden through it.

Step 1: What Is an Indoor Garden!

  • Light – Most garden plants need at least six hours of light a day. But it has to be good light. If you put your hand in front of the window and it doesn’t cast a shadow, chances are the light isn’t adequate for most plants to live a happy life. However, you can always supplement low light conditions with grow lights.If you have modest natural light in your home and don’t want to fuss with special lighting, stick to plants that normally need low-light conditions, or try moving your garden to a sunny windowsill.
  • Water – Plants need conditions close to those in their native habitats. A plant that calls the desert home will need less frequent watering than a plant that lives in a bog. Knowing what water conditions a plant prefers is a good first step to keeping a successful indoor garden. It’s easier than you think because the plants themselves will often give you clues. Plants with thick rubbery leaves are water hoarders and can typically survive with less water than plants with thin, delicate leaves. If you hate to water your plants, choose varieties that can thrive on less, or pick plant-pots with hidden reservoirs to cut down on your watering chores.
  • Air – As a byproduct of photosynthesis, plants produce oxygen and filter nasty gasses, like formaldehyde, from your home environment via their leaves. To keep plants healthy, you need to keep their leaves clean and keep the air around them moving and moist. To do this, you can place them in a spot with good air flow or provide them with a small fan.
