Make a Raspberry Pi Automated Gardener



See how we built it, including our materials, code, and supplemental instructions, on Hackster.io: https://www.hackster.io/hakershack/automated-indoor-gardener-a90907

With how busy our lives are, it’s sometimes easy to forget to pay a little attention to your thirsty indoor plants until it’s too late and you are left with a crusty pile of yellow carcasses. Instead of constantly replacing those plants, we’ll show you how to make a compact, automated, raspberry pi powered gardener to water and light your plants. This gardener’s memory is impeccable, and never forgets to water your plant.

This project uses a Raspberry Pi Zero W to run the software. It doesn’t use wifi, so you could also use the Raspberry Pi Zero. However, if you want to extend the functionality and make it connect to an IoT app, you’ll want to use the Zero W.
