“Planting monitoring is DIFFICULT, don’t you think so? They stay silent all the time and won’t show their needs until the situation becomes really critical. The fact is you know plants need water and sunlight to grow, but how much is exactly needed to prosper your plant? Stop learning it through trial and error, save innocent life by planting in a smarter way. Our kit will include a Micro: bit control board for temperature monitoring and smart sensors for soil moisture and light intensity indication. You can then build a way to accurately monitor the growth rate of the plant and know their needs on time. “
