Hi fellow growers,
I have been growing peppers for several years and I love to make Sambal from the harvest I get every year.
Now I got the oppertunity to combine my hobby and school with an Internet of Things/Tech assignment.
I have chosen to create something to keep track on data I can get from my plants. This is going to be a product with some sensors combined with a small web application.
I'm thinking of data such as:
- PH level of the soil
If I got enough time I would like to add components like an automatic watering system. But first I want to focus on the sensors and the input I can get out of a plant.
The main idea is that growing plants should be for fun and not that the whole system will take over the care taking, just keep track on an individual plant and its history.
Maybe you can give me some great insights in what information I can get from a pepper plant and its environment?
Thanks in advance and keep growing/eating!
