A USB to micro USB cable,

4xAA batteries,

a computer with an internet connection,

a pen or pencil,

a piece of paper

some water (a medium to large size container to hold water)

a medium to large plant pot, … and of course a plant!

 

The kit works by monitoring the moisture level in the plant pot soil. If the moisture level drops below a certain threshold, the water pump is switched on via a mosfet transistor. The pump will run for a software configured amount of time and will then switch off.
