Build Your Own Plant Monitor Using Meadow

Make this plant monitor using a capacitive soil moisture sensor, temperature sensor and display its health on a screen in .NET with Meadow.

In this project we’re making a plant monitor to keep a plant nice and healthy using a capacitive soil moisture sensor, an analog temperature sensor and a ST7789 display to show the status of the plant. We can drive all these peripherals using Meadow.Foundation, and we’ll see how easy is to use all their APIs and write the logic in C#.

Meadow.Foundationa platform for quickly and easily building connected things using.NET on Meadow. Created by Wilderness Labs, it’s completely open source and maintained by the Wilderness Labs community.

If you’re new working with Meadow, I suggest you go to the Getting Started w/ Meadow by Controlling the Onboard RGB LEDproject to properly set up your development environment.”
