Inspired by NASA's Advanced Plant Habitat, this project aims to provide an enclosed environment that optimizes the growth of indoor plants through environmental monitoring and automated watering.
This growth chamber is outfitted with a number of sensors that are displayed to the built-in OLED display and published to Adafruit IO:
The dashboard allows users to monitor temperature, humidity, pressure, soil moisture, particulate matter level, and air quality from anywhere in the world. Based on the readings, users can choose to manually control the water pump. Otherwise, water will be pumped to the plant when humidity is less than 30%. Lighting is also controlled through the dashboard and is preset to 0:5:1 RGB coloring - a color ratio preferred by most plants for optimal growth.
