Give your plants a voice! To make your plant tweet when it needs water you need the following:

  • Plant
  • Arduino; the microcontroller, a small computer you can program.
  • Computer
  • Some electronic parts for a simple circuit
  • Arduino software
  • Processing software
  • Internet connection
  • Twitter account


Step 1

Connect your plant via a simple circuit to an Arduino.
