Plant Reminder Box

PocketBeagle based device that displays and texts user about plant’s sunlight and water levels

As a new plant parent, I unfortunately often forget to water my plants, or incorrectly place my plants in spots with too little or too much sunlight. At times, I wished that there was some way my plant could let me know it needed water or more sun, which was my motivation for this project.

To hopefully extend the life of my plants and perhaps yours, I created this plant reminder box that texts the plant owner if their plant needs water or needs a different amount of sunlight. Additionally, the box has a screen that displays the plant’s sunlight and water levels, so that the plant owner can ‘check in’ on the plant visually. This way, there’s really no excuse for me or you to not have a green thumb!”
